We talked about this new Muppet TV show sometime ago, when it wasn't sure it would be picked up by ABC. But it was, and to celebrate the news, the network shared a trailer for the upcoming series. Watch it below.
It's time to get things started! The Muppets are coming to ABC and this is your first look!

It's a very funny first trailer, the most hilarious part probably being the one where Gonzo makes fun of the mockumentary style in which this new Muppet show is produced. This new direction for the Jim Henson characters could be quite refreshing, which is probably what convinced the big guns at ABC to order a full series.
Here's the official synopsis:
The Muppets return to primetime with a contemporary, documentary-style show. For the first time ever, a series will explore the Muppets’ personal lives and relationships, both at home and at work, as well as romances, breakups, achievements, disappointments, wants and desires. This is a more adult Muppet show, for “kids” of all ages.Bill Prady (The Big Bang Theory) is writing and producing the series with Bob Kushell. The Muppets will make their primetime comeback on ABC this fall.
