The ten-part series was released in May but Disney+ never disclosed any ratings for the show.
The cancellation marks a blow for plans for a wider Muppetverse; Goldberg previously expressed interest in branching out using the classic IP, which includes some of Disney’s most recognizable characters.
It is the latest cancelation at Disney+ this year; other shows to have been axed include The Spiderwick Chronicles, which has since been shopped to Roku, National Treasure, Doogie Kamealoha, M.D., Willow, Big Shot and Mighty Ducks: Game Changers.
Developed and written by Goldberg and Muppets veteran Bill Barretta and Jeff Yorkes, the series followed The Electric Mayhem Band as they went on an epic musical journey to finally record their first studio album.
Lilly Singh starred as Nora, a driven junior A&R executive tasked with managing and wrangling the band and with her help, the old-school Muppet band came face to face with the current-day music scene as they try to finally go platinum.
Tahj Mowry, Saara Chaudry and Anders Holm also starred alongside Muppet performers including Barretta, Dave Goelz, Eric Jacobson, Peter Linz, David Rudman and Matt Vogel.
The Electric Mayhem Band consisted of Dr. Teeth on vocals and keyboards, voiced by Barretta, Animal on drums, voiced by Jacobson, Floyd Pepper on vocals and bass, voiced by Vogel, Janice on vocals and lead guitar, voiced by Rudman, Zoot on saxophone, voiced by Goelz, and Lips on trumpet, voiced by Linz.
The Disney Branded Television series was produced by ABC Signature and The Muppets Studio. It formed part of Goldberg’s overall deal with ABC Signature.
Exec producers include Goldberg, Barretta, Michael Bostick and Kris Eber as well as The Muppets Studio’s David Lightbody and Leigh Slaughter. Yorkes is a co-executive producer.
