A little more than a month ago, we got the news that ABC and producers Bill Prady (The Big Bang Theory) and Bob Kushell (3rd Rock From the Sun) were developing a new pilot for a Muppets revival series, the first since Muppets Tonight went off the air in 1998. Given the big-screen success the classic Jim Henson creations have had in recent years, it made sense, and we were eager to see the fruits of it. Now we know that the series really is happening, and we have the first trailer to prove it.
As previously reported, the show will follow the Muppets as they attempt to develop and put on a brand-new TV series, complete with backstage interviews and other shenanigans. Kermit, Gonzo, Fozzie and the rest of the gang are all on board and working hard. There's just one problem: Miss Piggy doesn't seem interested.
The Muppets will air Tuesdays this fall on ABC. Are you excited?
