Muppets Now is here at last. After waiting years for another small-screen show, Kermit and co have returned exclusively to Disney Plus (opens in new tab) for a limited six-episode mini-series that brings them back to their (ridiculous) variety show roots.

Muppets Now is the latest Disney Plus Original (joining shows like The Mandalorian), and it features unscripted, off-the-cuff sketches that appear on the service each week. This one follows Scooter - the Muppet Show's backstage manager - as he rushes to upload the series to the internet. To do so, he's got to avoid "spontaneous lunacy, surprising guest stars, and more frogs, pigs, bears (and whatevers) than legally allowed".
Naturally, watching Muppets Now isn't as complicated for us: all you need is a Disney Plus sign-up (opens in new tab) deal. Depending on your region, you can either grab a monthly subscription ($6.99 per month in the US (opens in new tab), £5.99 per month in the UK (opens in new tab), and $8.99 per month in Australia (opens in new tab)) or go for a special offer, if you're in the US, that gets you a month of Disney Plus, Hulu, and ESPN Plus for $12.99 (opens in new tab). That's a fair amount of content, and easily the best Disney Plus bundle (opens in new tab) we've seen.
If you don't want to commit to Disney Plus long-term, we'd recommend picking up a month or two of the service and canceling it after Muppets Now is over (and once you've had a chance to watch Black is King, the new Beyoncé movie (opens in new tab)). Just remember, episodes appear on a week-by-week basis - you're not going to be able to blaze the entire series in one sitting, so plan your membership accordingly!
