The Muppets are back, and it’s hard to bet against them in any situation.
This time around, the show is self-described as a “more adult” version of the idea, one that is not strictly based on a variety show, but the behind-the-scenes story of their lives. It’s personal now, much like many of their films, and according to the sneak peek trailer, there’s a page out of the Ted playbook involved as well.
The show also seems to be throwing some wrenches into the traditional view of what’s going on in these lives we’ll be examining, especially in terms of the fact that Kermit has “moved on.”
There will obviously be lots of long-term and guest humans in play here, and at least some of these humans are pretty seriously intertwined in the lives of our band of usual suspects.
