Quinta Brunson is having a full circle moment. The “Abbott Elementary” star, TV writer and producer took to Instagram today to tease an upcoming appearance in the 54th season of “Sesame Street.” In a brief caption that reads “Speechless,” she lets the captured moments with Big Bird do all of the talking.

“Abbott Elementary” co-stars Tyler James Williams (known for playing Gregory), William Stanford Davis (Mr. Johnson) and Sheryl Lee Ralph (Barbara) all commented their excitement about the collaboration. “That’s the day 1 homie. Hell yea,” Williams wrote. Ralph commented three yellow hearts, while Davis said, “I love this so much!”
Right now, there’s not much known about Brunson’s possible appearance on the classic childhood show. However, she’s long wished for a “Sesame Street” and “Abbott Elementary” crossover. While at this year’s Golden Globes, she revealed that Cookie Monster and the “Sesame Street” gang would be her dream guest stars on the Emmy award-winning show.

Another Upcoming Appearance From Brunson
This exciting announcement only gets better with another appearance from Brunson as she and Williams make a cameo in “Harley Quinn: A Very Problematic Valentine’s Day Special.” The “Abbott Elementary” duo voice DC superheroes Hawkman and Hawkgirl in the special. “As a ‘Harley Quinn’ fan, I’m thrilled to lend my voice to the special and to team up with my ‘Abbott Elementary; creative partners, Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker and co-star Tyler James Williams for this fun episode,” she said in a statement.
“‘Harley Quinn’ is such a brilliant series and it is an honor to lend my voice to this special. I think the cameo is something both ‘Abbott Elementary’ and DC fans will enjoy,” Williams also said in a statement. The special is now available to stream on HBO Max.
With February in full swing and plenty of 2023 left, there’s no signs of Brunson slowing down. She’s consistently blazing the trail for young entertainers and creatives—both on the TV screen and the current Hollywood awards season. That’s why it’ll be exciting to see what else she has in store for months and years to come. Whether it’s more seasons of “Abbott Elementary” or voice acting roles, we’re tuning in either way!
