Tensions fly – and a possible network fling is unveiled – in a new promo for The Muppets

The Muppets are gearing up for their upcoming show with a little help from some familiar faces – though Kermit the Frog might soon regret that he ever set eyes on one heartthrob with whom he shares a network.

“We’re super excited for our new show on ABC and they brought all the stars to kick it off,” Kermit says in a new, extended promo for The Muppets.

Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie and the gang are joined by the stars of ABC’s Scandal, Fresh Off the Boat, black-ish and more – and it’s clear the drama is already unfolding behind the scenes.

“Our new show is not like anything you’ve seen us do before,” Miss Piggy reveals. “You are going to see behind the scenes of The Muppets.” And boy do we – as in, the-morning-after-outside-Piggy’s-trailer behind the scenes.

It’s clear the wounds are still fresh following Miss Piggy and Kermit’s breakup and Kermit’s lightning-quick rebound with another pig named Denise (though he’s since denied the relationship is more than platonic).

As Fozzie notes, the show is about the Muppets “lives on the show, outside of work,” though it looks like some of the heat we’ve already seen on screen is can’t be contained.

In a shocking moment caught on camera – and seen first-hands by Kermit – Castle‘s Nathan Fillion is spotted leaving Miss Piggy’s trailer. Cue a seriously awkward interaction between Piggy’s paramours past and present.

Could this be a rebound, revenge or just a casual network fling?

One thing is for sure: #TGIT won’t be the only home of drama on ABC come this fall.
