Disney+ Is Bringing All 5 Seasons of ‘The Muppet Show’ Home for the First Time


Disney+ has announced the entire run of The Muppet Show is coming to the streaming service on February 19.

This is exciting news for fans of the classic show, as the fourth and fifth seasons have, according to Disney, “never previously been released on home entertainment.” The first three seasons have been readily available for purchase on DVD for years, but the final two seasons have been essentially unseen since they first aired close to 40 years ago. The show originally aired from 1976 to 1981, and featured guest appearances from pop culture icons including Steve Martin, Elton John, Julie Andrews, and Mark Hamill, just to name a few.

The Muppet Show joins a variety of other Muppet content on Disney+, including all of your favorite Muppet movies as well as the Disney+ original show Muppets Now. So be sure to check Disney+ on February 19 for this new (to us at home) Muppet content, and rejoice for, as Statler and Waldorf said, “We don’t deserve this!”

LeeAnn is children's librarian who joined Nerds and Beyond in 2020 as a way to stretch her writing skills and connect with others who have the same pop culture passions as she does. She loves music, reading (obviously), and any TV show that can grab and hold her attention. Currently some of her favorite things to nerd out over include Supernatural, Prodigal Son, Louden Swain and Percy Jackson (books, theater, or upcoming show - lets leave the movies out of it).
