Muppets Now Will Release on Disney+ on July 31
The unscripted series's first season will hit the streaming service on July 31, and viewers can expect a ton of celebrity guests and classic Muppets laughs. In an August 2019 tweet, Kermit the Frog shared what he could about the show, though "Joe the Legal Weasel" was right behind him, so plenty was redacted!
"Coming exclusively to #DisneyPlus in 2020, @TheMuppets proudly present MUPPETS NOW, a new short-form unscripted series! I'd love to tell you more, but Joe The Legal Weasel is right behind me. Gulp!" he wrote in the tweet, which featured a photo of a letter, which read: "Hi-ho! Kermit the Frog here — I'm so [redacted] to announce The Muppets' brand-new, unscripted, short-form [redacted] series! It's called Muppets Now premiering on Disney+ in 2020! And best of all? It will feature celebrity guest stars like [redacted]! We're so [redacted] to share more with you on [redacted]."
According to a May press release, Muppets Now will be "Overflowing with spontaneous lunacy, surprising guest stars and more frogs, pigs, bears (and whatevers) than legally allowed" and the Muppets will "cut loose . . . with the kind of startling silliness and heartfelt fun that first made them famous."
We can't wait!
Who Will Be in the Muppets Now Series?
As of now, though we know there will be celebrity guests, the only cast members who are confirmed are The Muppets themselves. Expect to see Miss Piggy, Kermit the Frog, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, and the rest of the crew!
