The Muppets: Kerry Washington, Nathan Fillion, and Patricia Heaton welcome them to ABC family

Posted on

ABC

While we may never see Kermit become one of Olivia Pope’s gladiators, nor will Gonzo ever solve a murder with Richard Castle, nor will we see the Swedish Chef get adopted by the Heck family, a few new promos for The Muppets promise that they’re more than welcome among the ABC regulars.

ABC has unveiled three new teasers for the upcoming Muppets series, pairing Kermit, Miss Piggy, and Swedish Chef with a few regulars from the network, including Kerry Washington, Nathan Fillion, and Patricia Heaton. The promos don’t go off without a hitch, however, as the rift between Miss Piggy and Kermit seems like it could make things tense for Washington. Luckily, she’s more concerned about snagging a selfie with Kermit than actually getting to know her network costars.

Check out the three promos below, and a word of advice to Kermit — if you ever want to win back Miss Piggy, keep an eye on that Fillion fellow.
