First Look at New Muppets TV Show


This should be more than enough to get all you Muppets fans out there very excited.

After popular demand grew following a screening at Comic-Con this month, US TV channel ABC has released a 10 minute long presentation that was made by The Muppets to convince the network - successfully - to commission a series.

It's the first glimpse of the new style of Muppet show - previously touted as being stylistically similar to The Office. From this clip, it's not quite the same, but there's definitely a few echoes of it and, given Ricky Gervais appeared in their last big screen outing, 2014's Muppets Most Wanted, perhaps he might be drafted in at some point for guidance.

It's definitely got plenty of 'now' references, and looks unafraid to dip its toes into adult territory, but overall the classic feel is, thankfully, present and correct, including Miss Piggy's diva outbursts and Kermit's loveable world-weariness.

It's due to premiere on ABC on 22 September this year - no word on a UK release date yet, but hopefully as soon as possible.
