Okay, I'm confused now:


So Disney was developing a scripted and an unscripted Muppet series for Disney+?

Yes. There were two separate series being developed concurrently. Muppets Now remains but Muppets Live Another Day is canned (for now).

I dunno. It was a strange concept, but it had a little more of a leg to stand on than "Kermit thinks Fozzie's girlfriend cheats at trivia night."

The Disney + show which was rumoured to be in development back in February has now been officially shelved after the creators included Josh Gad walked away from the project

This is because there was a change in leadership at the muppet studios. Studio Head Debbie Mckellen stepped down with former parks live entertainment former Senior Vice President David Lightbody taking charge.

Lightbody decided to go into a different direction however it is stated that both ABC Studios and Disney + supported the project

Here is a statement from Josh Gad and the toughpigs article
