ABC Orders Full Season of ‘The Muppets’


We hope you’re ready for more Kermit, Miss Piggy and the rest of the gang because ABC has ordered a full season of The Muppets.

The network announced today that they’ve picked up the reboot for a full season, which means 16 total episodes of the comedy are headed our way, which is no huge surprise as the comedy now stands as Tuesday’s highest-rated new series among adults 18-49.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “the additional three-episode pickup is six shy of the standard back-nine order, with insiders stressing the shortfall is to accommodate the network’s midseason fare including family comedy The Real O’Neals and its all-black Uncle Book redo.”

If you haven’t had a chance to check out the revival of the series, the next new episode of The Muppets airs on November 3rd and sounds like it’ll be a great one to tune into. As you may have heard, Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy are no longer an item, but what happens when he turns to his ex to help him find a gift for his new girl? Knowing Miss Piggy, nothing it’s good, but it’s bound to be something hilarious.
