Muppets Now is coming up soon – just a few more weeks until its premiere on July 31st! In preparation, D23 Magazine has published a few pages on the series, including an interview with Muppets Studio Vice President Leigh Slaughter, an interview with Kermit and Piggy, and a whole bunch of newly confirmed details.
Twitter user @toonfully has generously posted the entire spread, which you can read below:
Some key points that stood out to us:
- The series will be split up among the following setups:
- A game show starring Pepe the King Prawn, who drives Scooter crazy
- A cooking show with The Swedish Chef
- A lifestyle show with Miss Piggy
- Science experiments with Beaker and Dr. Bunsen Honeydew
- A chat show with surprise celebrity guests
- Speaking of celebrity guests! These folks have been confirmed:
- Taye Diggs
- Seth Rogen
- Aubrey Plaza
- Danny Trejo
- Joe the Legal Weasel
We’ll continue to wait patiently until we get to see a proper teaser from Muppets Now, but this magazine spread has certainly whetted our whistles for the moment.
