Following the success of The Muppets in theaters last November, we had heard that Disney began work on a Jason Segal-less sequel.

Now we’re learning that another film isn’t the only plan in the future of the puppet characters.

The news came down via Disney’s European VP of marketing said:

I am looking at [the sequel] as we speak, it’s a really fun one to work on… what we’d do is ask what’s the right opportunity for the franchise… If you went down the television series route it could play on the Disney Channel but it could also play in primetime on a free-to-air network. We would look at a variety of different models.

The Muppet Show originally ran from 1975 to 1981 and was produced in the United Kingdom.

Would you like to see a new Muppet show?

    If the muppet show came back I’d want it on prime time on ABC as opposed to on Disney Channel. And it could still be a sequel to the movie if they include Walter.

    Not if it is a re-boot of the original “Muppet Show.” That is sacred ground to me that should not be revisited. It had five great seasons and there is nothing to be gained by bringing it back.

    HELL TO THE NO! Mainly because with the way Disney is now they’d just ruin the show. If it was aired on another network then definitely, but since they’re thinking about Disney Channel then absolutely not. Maybe if it was on a network such as ABC it might be worth watching, but I feel that Disney will dumb the Muppets down to get laughs from the kids with no more content for adults to enjoy as well. 

    My idea is that Disney will make pathetic jokes for kids and choose pop culture icons such as Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, etc. who would be cool on the muppets, but they would be full performances to draw in Tweens. If singers like Katy Perry and Lady Gaga (who has worn a Kermit the Frog dress) came on they would be fun to watch, as long as their whole purpose isn’t to draw in the teen crowd, but more of an honor with a short segment. Also that they have other people come on that don’t just appeal to teens like Julie Andrews (not sure if she’s been on) and George Clooney. AND DEFINITELY NOT JUST DISNEY STARS! If I see a single Disney Channel star’s face I will be FURIOUS! Sorry this is a little bit of a rant. :)

    Anyone remember Muppet’s Tonight on ABC back in the 90s? That was some good stuff. Just not on the Disney Channel.

    Does it have to be on Disney Channel or ABC? I’d be so happy  if it returned though.
