“Muppets Now” Will Debut on Disney+ in the Summer of 2020
Currently, Disney+ content does not feature very much of The Muppets, and what is available is dated, but that is about to change. Last summer, D23 confirmed a Muppet short series was in development. Well, it is official. Muppets Now will be available on Disney+ in the summer of 2020.
Kermit the Frog himself announced on Twitter the series would happen Summer of 2020. Of course, some details are being held by “Joe The Legal Weasel”. (August 2019)

The Press Release: “Fans of The Muppets can also see more of Kermit, Miss Piggy and friends in the upcoming Disney+ series, Muppets Now, premiering this summer.”
Previously, a comedy show called “Muppets Live Another Day” was briefly in development. The show included Josh Gad (Olaf), but was abandoned last fall. The 2014 Muppets movie, Muppets Most Wanted, was a failure in the box office.
There are plenty of rumors surrounding the new short series show. It may have a game show style format. Maybe a cooking show, or a talk show featuring an unknown Muppet girlfriend. None of these have been confirmed, but knowing these fun-loving characters and their “variety show” style from their classic television show, they will include all of these things along with celebrity guests.
From Disney+’s announcement: “Forty years after leaving the swamp in his big screen debut in The Muppet Movie, Kermit the Frog is heading upstream with Miss Piggy, and the gang, bringing a new kind of mayhem and laughter to Disney+ with their first-ever unscripted short-form series, Muppets Now.“
