THE MUPPETS ARE BACK!

muppets-new-series-970x545

Yesterday, ABC decided to stop pulling on our heartstrings and make it official by bringing The Muppets back to primetime. The new TV show, which has been picked up to series, will be a modern-day, documentary-style show that is said to have a more adult focus than in past iterations. Now, this isn’t to say that we’ll find Fozzie Bear shooting up heroin in his run-down Bushwick apartment after bombing at the Comedy Cellar; rather, it simply means that the series is looking to explore the lives of the Muppets outside of the stage, looking into their personal lives, triumphs, failures, relationships, and more. The series comes from writers Bill Prady and Bob Kushell, who also serve as executive producers alongside Randall Einhorn and Bill Baretta. According to Entertainment Weekly, the pilot presentation received a standing ovation from ABC executives. If anything I’ve heard about network executives is true, that should be damn near impossible. – Nerdist.com

This is HUGE news! I actually heard about this revival a while ago, but wanted to wait to report on it until everything was official.

Kermit and the gang will be hitting ABC airwaves sometime at the end of this year, which is far too long, but i’ll deal. The Muppets are one of the few things from my childhood that gives me the same EXACT reaction now as the first time I watched them – pure, unaltered, enjoyment. I’m putting a DVR back in my house for this.
