Disney+ is cutting Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem’s comeback tour short, cancelling The Muppets Mayhem after one season, TVLine has learned.
“What a long, strange trip it’s been!” co-creator and executive producer Jeff Yorkes wrote on social media shortly after news of the show’s cancellation broke. “The highs (thanks Zoot!), the lows… A huge thank you to our loyal fans and viewers. I hope audiences continue to discover our little show and that it brings them some joy… and some Mayhem!! Rock on!!”
