“The Muppets” Are Coming Back To Primetime

Here’s some lovely news — the Muppets are headed back to prime time! Here’s the trailer for their new show, “The Muppets,” coming to ABC in the fall. It’s a bit of a departure from the “Muppet Show” of yore — less Gong Show and more “The Office” — and it gets the gang back together, trying to put on their very own television show. So on-trend, so meta! It looks like we’ll be learning a little more about the interior lives of our old friends. Fozzie’s dating a human woman, and Miss Piggy appears to have set Hollywood aside for good, having found work as, maybe, a Colonial Williamsburg re-enactor. We’re sure she’ll approach it with absolutely zero chill.

Anyway! It looks like it’s going to be a great time, so set your DVRs or whatever the kids are doing these days, and get ready to watch this fall.
