With each of the puppets living their own lives, Kermit the Frog takes on the challenge of getting the gang back together to make their show successful. And, in “Office”-style fashion, the ragtag gang of Muppets meet to discuss the news and poke fun at cutting to private interviews. But it’s clear that this new series is different from Muppets of the past — Kermit drops a weed joke, uses an iPhone and has a new girlfriend. 

“The Muppets” premieres September 22 on ABC. Check out the latest clip of the show above, courtesy of ABC
