It’s time to play the music. It’s time to light the lights. It’s time to re-boot one of my generations most cherished TV shows – The Muppets get a series order at ABC.

As we discussed previously, Disney ordered a pilot of The Muppets. The show will feature our favorite muppets and explore their lives at home and at work in a documentary-style show. Word is, when the pilot was shown to ABC and Disney executives, it received a standing ovation. I think that’s a good sign.

ABC just released the photo above to announce the return of The Muppets to primetime television. As we know they’ve already started their guerrilla marketing campaign to insert The Muppets back into public consciousness by partnering with famous YouTubers to make videos.

Are you excited for the return of The Muppets to primetime TV?
