The Muppets are Returning to Primetime TV this Fall with an Adult Style Show

The beloved Muppets we all grew up with will return to primetime TV after a two-decade long hiatus. The mockumentary-style series will air Tuesday nights at 8pm. And yes, we’ll we watching

Yesterday, ABC announced the return of the beloved, iconic Muppets to one of its weekly timeslots: Tuesdays at 8pm, beginning this fall. The news comes after a two-decade absence from series television. 

The Muppets will be overseen by Bill Prady (The Big Bang Theory) and Bob Kushell (3rd Rock From the Sun).

While the creators have been tight-lipped about the details of the project since it was first announced last month, details are now slowly starting to emerge.

The mockumentary-style series, dubbed a “Muppet show for adults,” will apparently offer a never-before-seen look into the personal lives and interrelationships of the Muppets. Think: a hilarious, juicy soap opera, starring some of the faces you’ve loved since childhood: Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, Animal, and the rest of the crew.

The single-camera show follows the characters around, with them giving interviews directly into the camera as cutaways. The series centres on the colourful creatures’ creation of a new network show. 

Apparently, it’s kid-friendly too.
