“The Muppets are thrilled to be doing our first-ever unscripted show! It’s going to be extremely spontaneous and very surprising; almost as surprising as the fact that we ever actually used a script in the past.” – Kermit the Frog
“This is moi unfiltered, unexpurgated, and more unbelievably fabulous than ever. If you watch only one show on Disney+, you really should tune in more often. But whenever you watch, make it moi on Muppets Now.” – Miss Piggy
“For the first time ever, I’m working without a joke book, folks. It’s a new kind of totally improvised comedy I call ‘bare bear’! See what I did there? Ahh! Wocka! Wocka!” – Fozzie Bear
“I knew Muppets Now was coming to Disney+ but I did NOT know they wanted Muppets Now NOW, as in right away, as in “doesn’t anybody give a warning around here’!? Gotta go upload those episodes pronto! Wish me luck; I’ll need it.” – Scooter
WHAT ON WHAT’S GOOD INITIAL THOUGHTS
I have always enjoyed the Muppets growing up. Funny enough part of my DVD movie collection includes many of The Muppets classics. Any guesses on which one’s?
In the six-episode season, Scooter rushes to make his delivery deadlines and upload the brand-new Muppet series for streaming. They are due now, and he’ll need to navigate whatever obstacles, distractions, and complications the rest of the Muppet gang throws at him.
Overflowing with spontaneous lunacy, surprising guest stars and more frogs, pigs, bears (and whatevers) than legally allowed, the Muppets cut loose in “Muppets Now” with the kind of startling silliness and heartfelt fun that first made them famous.
Set to premiere on July 31, 2020 on Disney’s streaming service. The first season will consist of 6 episodes.
Matt Vogel as Kermit the Frog
Dave Goelz as The Great Gonzo
