It’s time to play the music, it’s time to light the lights, and it’s time to officially declare 2015 the year of the TV revival: ABC is developing a reboot of The Muppet Show.
The network has ordered a pilot presentation featuring the Muppets, EW has confirmed. Details of the plot are being kept under wraps, but Bill Prady, co-creator of The Big Bang Theory, is co-writing and executive producing with Bob Kushell (Anger Management), who will serve as showrunner. Prady has a long history writing for the Muppets, including The Jim Henson Hour, Muppet Classic Theater, and a number of Muppet specials.
The original Muppet Show aired from 1976 to 1981. It was revived in 1996 with ABC’s Muppets Tonight, which lasted just ten episodes.
