This season's focus is conflict resolution, literacy, and story telling. The season aired on Televisa in fall 2010, and Discovery Kids Latin America in January 2011.
As of season 13, the Plaza has a "brighter, fresher appearance":
"In addition to meeting Gaby and visiting Abelardo’s new home, several Plaza Sésamo episodes will tell stories through longer formats. For example, in a physically comedic Super Lola story, Lola learns that she is, in fact, super helpful, and that being super does not mean she has to learn to perform impossible tasks. In another hilarious story, Pancho will go to a costume ball as a blue prince, and his princess, who actually looks much more like a witch, will upstage Pancho and win the prize for best costume."
Alfonso Soto takes over Pancho this season, and show veteran Rocío Lara has been named Head Muppeteer. Producers have yet to meet with Paola Ramones, to discuss whether she will return; she was new to the cast in 2009.
One major change has been made to the format: episodes will close with the character recapping, and saying goodbye.
