More revivals are in development in the US.
ABC is filming a potential revival of The Muppet Show, penned by The Big Bang Theory co-creator Bill Prady.
The Hollywood Reporter claims it is likely to be presented at the network Upfronts in May and could go straight to series.
The concept reportedly sees Kermit the Frog, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo and Animal, among others, gathering at ABC Studios for a meeting about the new Muppet Show. But Miss Piggy won’t sign on, and her relationship with Kermit is on the rocks, preventing the show from getting off the ground.
Meanwhile ABC sitcom, Full House is aid to be nearing a deal to return on Netflix.
Original exec producer Robert L. Boyett and series creator Jeff Franklin have been leading the charge to bring back the comedy’s former stars Candace Cameron Bure (D.J.) and Andrea Barber (Kimmy) on board to star. Lead trio Bob Saget (Danny), John Stamos (Jesse) and Dave Coulier (Joey) may appear in a guest capacity.
Last week NBC announced a straight-to-series order for a Coach revival starring Craig T. Nelson.
Recently confirmed for revivals are Twin Peaks and The X Files.
