Oh man, I'm really excited for ANYTHING Muppet-related these days!! Hopefully Gonzo and Sam get more screentime! (as you can see I'm really living up to my name here )
As someone who did like the show in 2015 I don't know what I want. I don't want a reboot of the 2015 show ora remake of the original Mupper show. So I'm nervous about what it's gonna be like.As one of the fans who disliked the 2015 series, I hope they start over with a clean slate. Only time will tell, I guess.
In this day and age I think more and more people want shows with more character development and heavier story arcs. I mean, kids cartoons are becoming more complex and arc heavy, we're even starting to see it a lot with comedies such as The Good Place, Last Man On Earth, and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Not to mention, variety shows are few and far between nowadays, and the ones that have existed recently haven't done so well (aside from SNL). So, i'm not saying that they should have 13 dramatic episodes where they ban together to defeat some big bad, but what i'm saying is the show needs to have more fleshed out plots, slightly more character development, and maybe an episode every year that changes the status quo just a little.So, if they try to the 2015 show again but actually doing what they did at the end of the series with Up Late with Miss Piggy and actually having segments and still doing some episodic stories, then it could work.
However, I can tell that's not what everyone wants. From what I've seen with the response to the Hollywood Bowl, doing the Muppet Show is the best direction to go. Let's just hope they get the right people to do this.
