The Muppets television revival will be short-lived, as ABC has cancelled the series after just one season. The reboot got off to a strong start last fall, ranking as the season's highest-rated new series on Tuesday nights after its first five episodes.

Nostalgia evidently started to wear off not long after that, however, and its viewership started to taper off. The network tried to right the ship by bringing in a new showrunner to give the series a midseason reboot, but it failed to breathe new life into the faltering show.
