It's not a rumor. It's been confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter.

Q: Any insight on the premise of the new show? It has been quiet on the Muppet front since that rumor about Disney+ broke.

Skyler Shuler: I have heard that it will be like the original Muppet Show. That’s a rumor at this point.

The fact it's from the showrunners of OUAT has me worried. :huh:

Quote:
The Muppets are coming to Disney+. Josh Gad (Frozen) and the creative duo behind Once Upon a Time Edward Kitsis & Adam Horowitz have created a show called Muppets Live Another Day. The show takes place right after the events of 1984's The Muppets Take Manhattan. Kermit disbands the gang but they are brought back together after the mysterious disappearance of Rowlf. We should expect to see it released on Disney + in 2020.

Lol, expect lots of plot holes, flashbacks, memory wipes, and an overall disregard for continuity.

Beats me. Probably people who didn't watch OUAT.:P They're also serving as showrunners for the Amazing Stories reboot for Amblin and Apple.

It looks like they're shooting the series in London. Probably for tax purposes.

The early seasons of Once were wonderful, so I'm hoping the same magic is there for this endeavour :)

^I'd say only the first season was strong. Post-3A the series started going off the rails. I still enjoyed it for what it was but you can't really call it a well-written show.

Based on the title and logline, the new Muppets series seems to be going for a James Bond angle.

From what I've heard Damon Lindelof was a ghost writer for the first season and was heavily involved. He also gave them an outline about plot points to do in the future like Henry's father is Rumple's son and probably 311 as a series finale. That's why season 2-3A kept the strong theme of the importance of family.
It really went downhill afterwards when they decided to do fan pandering, focusing on ridiculous ships and inserting Disney's popular IP.

I only watched the first season of "Once Upon a Time" and I found it wasn't my thing, but I see nothing wrong with giving the showrunners this series.

If not this show, what do you think would a better series for them to oversee? And please, no snarky answers. I believe, unless you're a monster or a creep, every creative person in Hollywood deserves to work and be able to feed their family.

Well, that certainly explains the significant drop in quality after 3A.

No one is entitled to a Hollywood job. Especially not wealthy creatives who have already been given their fair share of opportunities. There's a finite number of projects and positions in the entertainment industry so perhaps if we stopped rewarding mediocre, straight white men with ongoing work, more talented people from marginalized groups would finally be able to break through.

Even Season 3A was criticized a lot. People weren't fond of how OUAT made another familial connection with Rumple and Peter and complained that the entire season was just the main cast going through the jungle episode after episode. The supporting characters like Wendy, the Darlings, and even Ursula (the real Ursula) were wasted. I think people appreciated Neal's death the most since he wasn't popular at all. That and I guess Rumple's sacrifice but no one was surprised when he was brought back right after.

As for Season 3B, it introduced Zelena who was one of my favs even if another familial plot twist had gotten incredibly stale by that point. However, Snow's baby was a pointless arc and Robin was brought into the fold which makes this the biggest waste lol.

I have no horse in the OUAT discourse (give me Fables any day), other than wondering why these guys were chosen to run a Muppet series.

I commented on the Once Upon a Time thread because I don't want to derail the muppets thread. Hope it's okay.
