TVLine Items: Muppets Rebooted Again, New Doctor Who Logo and More


Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy may be getting another stab at TV fame through Disney’s new direct-to-consumer streaming service.

Muppets reboot is said to be in the works at Disney, per THR.com. This comes almost two years after ABC cancelled the mockumentary-style The Muppets reboot in 2016 after just one season. Disney is currently looking for writers for the show.

The unnamed streaming service, which will also launch with a live-action Star Wars and a High School Musical series, is expected to arrive in late 2019.
