The Muppets are back! That zany group of fuzzy muppets you grew up loving are back a little older, a little wiser and starring in their very own reality show. The skits and musical numbers you remember from the days of old are no longer the recipe of the day. In their new series “The Muppets”, sadly we find Missy Piggy and Kermit have broken up and they are dating other people all while working together on Miss Piggy’s late night talk show “Up Late with Miss Piggy”.
Not to worry though, the rest of the gang is back too! Kermit is the Executive Producer of “Up Late with Miss Piggy” and everyone’s favorite funny Bear, Fozzie, is the in-house comedian warming up the crowd before the show with that wild man drummer extraordinaire Animal with Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhemband keep it colorful as the house band along with musical guests Grammy Award-winning rock band Imagine Dragons.
From table reads to booking guests the season premiere of “The Muppets” takes us behind the scenes of how Kermit and Piggy run a late night talk show while navigating the world as newly single individuals.

Life’s a happy song whenever the Muppets are around. Studio executives should take note; this is the kind of product you get when you put a film in the hands of someone who has obvious passion for what they are doing. Jason Segel championed this movie for years and it’s clear that everyone involved has a love of all things muppets.
Once upon a time, The Muppets were a Big Thing. Those days are gone and The Muppet studios are not only in ruins, but a nasty oil baron wants to tear down the building and dig for oil! What are you gonna do? Put on a show, of course!
