Disney+ is bringing the Muppets back to your television screen for an exclusive new series you won't be able to watch anywhere else. Muppets Now reunites the beloved gang for a six-episode, unscripted journey as they attempt to upload their first streaming show. Meta, much?

Along with a slate of celebrity guest stars like Linda Cardellini, Aubrey Plaza, Seth Rogen, and RuPaul, the show will feature three different segments per episode: a game show, a cooking show, and a talk show with each episode set to air weekly beginning Friday, July 31 at 3 a.m. ET.

What shows and movies does Disney+ offer?

Along with Muppets Now, Disney+ has a modest selection of shows and documentaries to take you behind-the-scenes of films like Star Wars and Pixar animated movies. Members can also watch pretty much every animated Disney film there is, including Frozen and Frozen 2, along with Marvel superhero films, Disney Channel Original Movies and TV series, National Geographic documentaries, and more. There's also a large range of Muppets material available, from The Muppets movies to The Muppets ABC series and more.

How do you get a free Disney+ trial?

Unfortunately, Disney+ doesn't offer a free trial at this time. While the service previously offered new subscribers a free 7-day trial, that's no longer the case. Luckily, Disney+ is one of the most affordable streaming services out there and pretty much essential for households with children.

How much does Disney+ cost?

Disney+ is one of the most affordable streaming services to date, which is wild considering all that it has to offer already after just seven months of being available in select countries. WIth currency conversions, there is some variation in pricing based on which country you live in ($6.99/£5.99/AU$8.99), though you can save and drop the monthly cost even lower by paying for a full year of membership instead. You can get the full rundown on Disney+ monthly and annual pricing in your country via this Disney+ guide.

Another Disney+ package bundles in Hulu and ESPN+ streaming services starting at just $12.99 per month. If you're already a subscriber to one of these services, you could save money each month by purchasing this bundled offer.
