One of the best pieces of news for the fall television series wasn’t something new, it was something old making a comeback. The Muppets were a television and movie phenomenon, and with the rebirth of the Muppets on the big screen, it only makes sense that the Muppets would come back on the small screen, too. However, when the gang takes to the airwaves on ABC this fall at 8 PM/7 Central, there’s going to be one big change. Kermit and Miss Piggy have apparently broken up.
“Piggy and I have gone our separate ways romantically. I guess it’s just coming out in the press now. It can be tough to work with your ex. It can be tough to be the executive producer on your ex’s talk show, particularly when your ex is a pig,” said Kermit during a Television Critics Association panel.
The split makes sense from a dramatic standpoint, even though everyone knows the two most famous Muppets will get back together before all is said and done. We’ve seen this song and dance before from those two, and they always get back together for the right job.
