Watch: ‘The Muppets’ Promos — Kerry Washington Takes a Selfie with Kermit the Frog

The Muppets” are coming back to TV, which means ABC is getting a slew of new stars — and the network’s favorite faces, including Kerry Washington, are getting in on the action.

In the new promos for the modernized “Muppets” sitcom, the “Scandal” star gets in the middle of an awkward moment between split couple Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy. And yes, Washington is just as starstruck by Kermit as the rest of the world and takes a selfie with the green machine. (Watch above.)

The two other videos have “Castle’s” leading man Nathan Fillion with Miss Piggy, and “The Middle” mom Patricia Heaton with the Swedish Chef.

The Muppets,” which hails from “The Big Bang Theory’s” Bill Prady and exec producer Bob Kushell, premieres Sept. 22 on ABC.

The three promos won’t be released on-air until this Sunday, during “Bachelor in Paradise,” but catch a sneak peek here:
