I'm making a big assumption here, saying that Disney is rebooting The Muppet Show specifically. All that has been revealed in a Hollywood Reporter piece is that Disney is going to be rebooting the Muppets for its streaming service they aim to have ready next year. They say it won't be a movie, but a series, so I'm just going to say that it's a reboot of The Muppet Show because that's a great idea and we'll all forget about whatever the hell they did on ABC in 2016.
Having a weekly Muppet Show that throws back to the edgy, but kind-hearted wit of the original show with modern celebrity guests sounds super up my alley.
Disney's going all out with this as yet unnamed streaming service, promising a live action Star Wars show, some kind of Marvel content, access to their huge library of films and now this Muppets thing. They had me at "Star Wars Show" and everything they're announcing after is pure nostalgic gravy for me. Hrmm... Let's forget I put the words "nostalgic gravy" out there, shall we? We'll put it in the same "it didn't happen" box that we're putting the shitty ABC Muppets reboot in. 'kay? 'kay.
