Hey, you know what would be great? A new TV series starting the Muppets’ resident band The Electric Mayhem. Ah well, it’s a fun thought, but it’ll never happen.
OR WILL IT???
The big rumor of the day (with an emphasis on rumor, so please take this with a generous grain of salt), Disney+ is developing a new series starring Dr. Teeth, Floyd, Janice, Animal and Zoot. Otherwise known as The Electric Mayhem!
According to Giant Freakin Robot, the series will be about the music industry and how it’s changed since the Mayhem’s heyday of the 1970s. The story will involve the band sitting down to record their first album after decades of touring (and playing in variety show theaters, presumably).
The cast will also include two humans: Sisters named Hannah and Nora, both of whom are musicians at different stages in their careers. But blah blah blah, who cares about the humans in a Muppet series?? Let’s get excited about the prospect of a new show with our favorite band ever!
If the rumors are true, anything can happen to change these details before they get in front of the camera. So once again: Grain of salt.
It also means that Disney+ has more faith in the Muppets as a viable brand, and we might even see our first real-world Electric Mayhem album in stores or streaming! Heck yeah.
Stay tuned for more details as we discover them! And in the meantime, keep those drumsticks crossed for good luck!
