Steve Whitmire, the voice behind lead Muppet Kermit the Frog, has been replaced after voicing the character for 27 years.
He took over from the Muppets' creator Jim Henson, who originally voiced the role, in 1990 and has voiced the Kermit we all know and love.
A spokeswoman for the company declined to comment on the details surrounding Whitmire's departure. Vogel has voiced such characters as Big Bird, Robin the Frog and The Count.
Stay tuned for more updates on the Muppets shake-up.

The phone is reported to feature HTC USonic as well and it runs on the latest Sense 9.0 UI, which is based on Android Nougat. Well, HTC Ocean Life might very soon come into the limelight considering all the leaked specs to be true.
He will be making his first appearance on "Muppets Thought of the Week" next week, though it is unlikely you will be able to spot any difference to the actual voice. Vogel has been a Muppet performer since 1996 and has also appeared on 30 Rock, Jimmy Kimmel Live and Saturday Night Live. "The Muppet Show" followed in 1976 and ended its run in 1982.
But Hennes points out that when Whitmire took over from Henson, many believed that the new Kermit simply sounded wrong.
Matt has worked with The Muppets Studio since the 1990s, performing as an assistant puppeteer for Sesame Street favourite Ernie alongside Steve.
"This is honestly the most depressing news ive heard all week. but i know matt vogel is a very talented guy and im proud of him for filling", said another user.
