Muppets now

New Muppets show hangs on Disney +

Disney + ordered the Muppets’ very first streaming show, Muppets now, a six-part unscripted series that airs on the service on July 31.

The series is produced by The Muppets Studio and Soapbox Films and will feature improvised comedians and celebrities including artists, comedians, conductors, as well as all the usual unscripted Muppet chaos.

The Muppets are a collection of puppet characters created by Jim and Jane Henson in 1955, known for their quirky antics and comedies in television, film and other media.

In their usual lawless fashion, the Muppets themselves commented on the launch of the new series. Kermit the Frog said, “The Muppets are thrilled to be making our very first unscripted show! It’s going to be extremely spontaneous and very surprising; almost as surprising as the fact that we’ve used a script in the past. “

“I knew Muppets now was coming to disney + but i didn’t know they wanted Muppets now NOW, as in right now, as in ‘no one gives a warning around here’ !? I have to go download these episodes pronto! Wish me good luck; I’ll need it, ”Scooter added.
