Steve Whitmire, the voice of Kermit The Frog for as long as 27 years, is leaving the Muppets.

As indicated by Deadline, Whitmire will be replaced by the puppeteer Matt Vogel in the role, having worked for the Jim Henson Company since the 90s.

No reason has been given for Whitmire’s takeoff, however, he’s been working and voicing Kermit since the passing of the legendary  Henson, the frog’s inventor, in 1990, having begun on ‘The Muppet Show’ in 1978.
