Another Muppets reboot might be in the works for Disney’s streaming service
Among the many, many slices of the pop culture pie Disney has devoured is The Muppets, and if a report from The Hollywood Reporter is correct, they’ll be coming back soon. Last year, reports started spreading that Disney was planning their own streaming service for 2019, and would ultimately break with Netflix and load up their service with all things Disney, Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars. Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that The Muppets will also be along for the ride in a new TV series. Hopefully it works out better this time — they brought The Muppets back to ABC in 2016 in a TV series revolving around the breakup of Kermit and Miss Piggy. The show ended up just as disastrous as the relationship, and it was canceled after one season.
