“The Muppets return to prime time with a contemporary, documentary-style show that—for the first time ever—will explore the Muppets’ personal lives and relationships, both at home and at work, as well as romances, break-ups, achievements, disappointments, wants and desires; a more adult Muppet show, for kids of all ages.”
After being absent from the small screen for over a decade the loveable Muppets will be returning to television this fall on ABC. According to EW, the ABC series will examine the lives of the Muppets behind the scene, adopting a mockumentary approach as they endeavor to kick off a brand new Muppet production.

The Muppets will premiere on Tuesday, September 22, 2015 at 8pm on ABC.
