Kermit, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie and the gang are to return to TV in a new documentary-style show exclusively for the UK and Ireland on Sky 1, lifting the lid on the day-to-day lives of The Muppets.

The series promises an up-close and personal look at the characters as they prepare to make a new TV series, uncovering what they get up to at home and work – revealing the romances, rows, rivalry and break-ups!

“Get ready to see the Muppets like you’ve never seen them before!” said Director of Sky 1, Adam MacDonald. “With no-holds-barrred access as they prepare for their big reunion, The Muppets promises a candid look at what goes on before and after they start the music and light the lights!”

The Muppets will be shown in the autumn.
