    Interesting that it's announced so soon after the show has been canceled. Then again, he didn't say it was a television series. It could be a new series of short viral videos, or maybe a Netflix (or Hulu, or other video website) series.

    Well, that was fast. But I also think it's going to be a tiny thing, not a full-fledged series.

    Well, if it is a tiny thing, I don't think Kirk would of started building it up on Twitter!!

    Maybe, but I'm sure Kirk knows that Muppet fans are hungry for any type of news now, no matter if it's major or minor. I for one don't want to get my hopes too high until there's more info.

    With Kirk Thatcher, it could be basically anything. I'm with @backpackmina - I'm looking forward to something a bit more concrete than a tweet!

    Wow, it hasn't even been a month since the last show was cancelled. Whatever this is, I hope it's not as ill-fated or poorly received as the tv series. Whatever it is, I'm happy the muppets will be back.

    I'm fairly certain it will be something internet based. Some of the most successful Muppet stuff to come out the past few years has been on YouTube, so I'll be quite happy if that's the case.

    There's speculation floating around Facebook that this is something related to JHC rather than the Muppets. Right now, only time will tell.

    Well considering the question he answered specifically said 'Muppets'......

    I hope not, and he did say muppets not puppet or anything else. I guess you could ask him on twitter.

    I love how last week everyone thought the franchise was dead, but now one tweet means that the Muppets are back and better than before ...

    I'm interested to see what Kirk is talking about though.

    It's interesting that he even specifically said he was working on a new series, since he couldn't say anything about it yet. He could have just said he was working on something Muppet-related. I would think that specifying that it's a series (or a special, or a movie, or a web short) would be too much information.

    Is this something different than the new puppet series with Julie Andrews on Netflix that he is talking about? I think that isn't set to air until early next year. I don't think that is Muppets either, just puppets.
