Sure, you can watch episodes of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series and Star Wars’ The Mandalorian, but those shows are old news. When it comes to new content, though, Disney’s streaming service, Disney+, is pretty good about creating original content with fan-favorite characters. 

This streaming platform premieres new television shows on a weekly basis, some of which are exclusive to this library. Muppets Now is an original show, featuring the same lovable Muppet characters in new adventures.

This will be one of the few original series’ coming to Disney+ during August 2020

August brings a few onew shows to Disney+, including National Geographic favorites like Weird But True, Alaska Animal Rescue, and Mars: One Day on the Red Planet. This will be, however, the first unscripted Muppets series exclusive to Disney’s streaming platform. 

“Well, this is our first unscripted series, so we’re very excited about that and everyone got to come up with their own segment ideas. Pepe came up with a game show– it’s called ‘Pepe’s Unbelievable Game Show,’ and it is unbelievable, let’s just say,” Scooter said during an interview with The Laughing Place

“The Swedish Chef has his cooking segment called ‘Ookey Dookey Cooking’ and ‘Muppet Labs Field Test’ is Bunsen and Beaker doing experiments out in the world, so everyone got to kind of do what they love to do,” he continued. “And I’m the guy who’s in charge of assembling the episodes and getting them uploaded to Disney+.”
