Screener Squad: The Muppets

Muppets Now TV Series Review


It’s time to play the music, it’s time to light the lights. It’s time to wait for Disney+ to load so we can watch “Muppets Now” tonight. Yes, you heard that right all your favorite Muppets have returned to a new improvisational Disney+ series. We got Kermit, Gonzo, Swedish Chef, Taye Diggs, Beaker and Linda Cardellini. Now Disney has tried and failed to revive the Muppets quite a few times in the past, so the real question here is: does this series manage to bring Muppets to a new younger audience while not losing the classic charm of the original 70’s series? We got a few Muppets’ fans (Nathan, Jordan and Spider-Mike) to let you know if it scratches that itch.
