Last year, there was talk of a new Muppets series coming to Disney+ and now it seems that show is one step closer to becoming a reality.
According to Slash Report, Josh Gad is working with ABC’s Once Upon a Time creators Edward Kitsis & Adam Horowitz on the new Muppets show. This project is apparently called, The Muppets Live Another Day.
This show will be set in the 1980’s and will take place immediately following the events of The Muppets Take Manhattan movie. The series is due to come to Disney+ in 2020.
Disney have attempted to reboot the Muppets a couple of times in recent years including two movies and a TV series, plus some popular live shows in London and Los Angeles, plus a new daily show in the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World.
Gad is staying busy with Disney, he is set to star in Artemis Fowl this December, followed by returning to the character that made him a household name to Disney fans as Olaf in Frozen 2 this November. He is also set to produce and possibly star in the studios live-action adaptation of The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
