ABC is quietly working on a "Muppet Show" revival, with help from "The Big Bang Theory" co-creator Bill Prady.

According to "The Hollywood Reporter," Prady and Bob Kushell ("Anger Management," "3rd Rock From the Sun") are writing a script for a pilot presentation that could be shown off as early as the television upfronts in May. The show will reportedly start filming next weekend.

The concept for the show sounds like it will hit some viewers right in the nostalgia #feels, while also being cool and meta enough to keep pace with the 21st century viewer. "Sources say the concept for the presentation includes the regular cast of characters created by Jim Henson - Kermit the Frog, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo and Animal, among others - gathering at ABC Studios for a meeting about the new 'Muppet Show.' However, the show won't move forward unless Miss Piggy signs on, and her current relationship with frequent love Kermit is on the rocks, preventing the show from getting off the ground." Love is strange!

Yes, we checked the date and everything! This is no April Fools' prank, believe it or not. Hey, it can't be any stranger than "Fuller House," right?
