Kermit and Miss Piggy have long had a tumultuous romantic relationship, but in 2015, they officially called it off. That hasn’t stopped the longtime coworkers from continuing to strive for civility in the workplace, though it might be fair to say that the striving might be a little one sided. That back and forth is evident in Muppets Now, which premieres this week on Disney+ and finds The Muppets up to their old television tricks. For Miss Piggy, this means suspicious looks at Linda Cardellini when she tries to buddy up to Kermit, and for Kermit this means conspicuous gulps while looking to camera, Office style. The A.V. Club talked to Kermit about what it’s like to break up but stay friends, and why The Muppets are only now consciously making the move to unscripted programming.
