ABC To Skew New “Muppets” Towards Grown-Ups

(via EW)

Looks like No, You Shut Up! won’t be the only TV show with puppets intended for older audiences on the block anymore.

ABC is reviving The Muppets, but are giving the franchise a 21st century makeover that will act more like a single camera mockumentary (hopefully appealing to more adults) than the previous versions of the show. This new Muppets will also delve deeper into the lives of The Muppets beyond what Kermit and Ms. Piggy have going on.

We’re not sure how far they’ll go with this “adult” idea, but it’s not completely off base as shown by series like Adventure Time that appeal to a wide range of ages.
