ABC just released five new posters for the upcoming Muppet Show though Yahoo!

And they are just the brand of humour and smarts we expect from the Muppets. Back to the glory days? Hopefully…

Shot in a verity/”The Office”-esque handheld style, “The Muppets” is a mockumentary chronicling the day-to-day duties of the Kermit and co. during production of “Up Late with Miss Piggy,” a late-night talk show starring Miss Piggy. Unlike the recent kid-centric Disney movies, the new show will feature more of the meta adult humor the characters were famous for during their heyday in the ’70s.

Bill Prady (“The Big Bang Theory”) and Bob Kushell (“The Simpsons”) co-created the show, which will air Tuesdays at 8pm/7c beginning September 22 on ABC.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
