Until now Seven had not indicated if it would run the show this year, preferring to keep its options open.
But the series has attracted considerable media coverage with their splashy return in the US last week (although some critics were a tad surprised by the tone).
Fozzie Bear, Kermit The Frog, Miss Piggy, The Great Gonzo and the rest of the gang are back in primetime as you’ve never seen them before!
Filmed in the documentary style of comedies Modern Family, The Office and Parks and Recreation,
The Muppets is a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the talk show Up Late With Miss Piggy
and explores the personal lives of these beloved characters as they live their lives in Hollywood.
