Anything Kermie can do, Miss Piggy can do better.

Kermit the Frog revealed to the 2015 TCA summer press tour that he and Miss Piggy had broken up and that he was seeing a nice woman in ABC publicity named Denise. Tuesday (Sept. 1) Kermit and Denise took their new romance public, but so far, the jilted Miss Piggy had not been spotted with anyone new.

But is there a love connection brewing between Hollywood legend William Shatner and the popular muppet porcine?

When Shatner expressed interest in Piggy’s availability on Twitter, Muppets executive producer Bill Prady said that his star is officially “playing the field.” But Miss Piggy ramped things up with a tweet of her own.

“Boldly go where no pig has gone before.” My, my, Miss Piggy, you do know how to woo a Star Trek star. And Shatner is definitely interested.

He’s even threatening Liam Hemsworth, recently seen canoodling with Miss Piggy. Hemsworth, Nathan Fillion and any other actors looking to woo the fiery star better watch their backs. Will this Piggy-Kermit love drama make it into ABC’s new Muppets show? Seems likely. The Muppets premieres Tuesday, Sept. 22 at 8pm ET/PT.
