Muppets Live Another Day, Disney+'s previously-announced Muppets reboot series, will reportedly not be moving forward.
According to Deadline, Muppets Live Another Day -- which previously received a pilot order -- has now been axed as a result of creative differences between the show's writing team and the higher ups at the Disney-owned Muppet Studio.
Muppets Live Another Day would have picked up where the 1984 film The Muppets Take Manhattan left off, with Kermit the Frog attempting to reunite the Muppets in an attempt to locate the missing Rowlf. The scripted comedy series was in development for the Disney+ streaming service for some time and was to be written and executive produced by Josh Gad, Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis.
Muppets Now -- an "unscripted," short-form variety show featuring celebrity guests (in the vein of The Muppets Show) -- is still currently slated to debut on Disney+ next year. Muppets Live Another Day, on the other hand, has now become the second of two comedy series to be scrapped by the streaming service ahead of its launch this fall, the other being Four Dads.
Disney+ launches in the United States on Nov. 12.
