The Muppets are back, they’ve been around for the last couple of years with The Muppets Movie, and Muppets Most Wanted, and now ABC is bringing them back to television Tuesdays, this fall! The series will be shot in an office-esque documentary style with a more mature edge to the beloved characters.
The whole thing is pretty meta, it’s a show about The Muppets making a show ABOUT THE MUPPETS! It’s shot in single-camera format as the characters are followed around behind the scenes while giving interviews to the cameras about their personal lives — including Fozzie bear’s dating life?! The format has been quite successful in the last couple of years with shows like Parks and Recreations and The Office.
There’s a handful of things I lose my shit over. The list includes Buffalo sauce, Doctor Who, alpacas and at the very top, The Muppets. Think of Walter at the beginning of The Muppets movie with Jason Segel, that was me right there, so excuse me as I throw on my Kermit the Frog shirt and proceed to speak in his voice for the next couple of days because I am beyond on board for this. MANAH MANAH!
