‘The Muppets’ Are Headed Back to TV!


The Muppets return to primetime with a contemporary, documentary-style show. For the first time ever, a series will explore the Muppets’ personal lives and relationships, both at home and at work, as well as romances, breakups, achievements, disappointments, wants and desires. This is a more adult Muppet show, for “kids” of all ages.

I really hope they can pull this off. We here at 8bit Geek all adore The Muppets, so this show, and its success, are very important to us. Using the mockumentary style has become an overused gimmick, but I’m really hoping that with the Muppets front and center, it will be a refreshing take on the genre.


The Muppets return to ABC this fall on Tuesdays. Will you be tuning in? Let us know in the comments below!
