The voice actor has revealed the reasons why he was fired.
"The first issue was that they felt I had been 'disrespectful' in being outspoken on character issues with the small group of top creative people during the ABC series.
"I have been outspoken about what’s best for the Muppets since the Muppets came to Disney , but the fact is I have respect for everyone who was involved in the creation of that series for their own particular contributions.
"At the same time, I also have insight into their limitations with respect to how well they know the Muppets."
He has been working with The Muppets since 1978, so he's pretty well versed in all things Kermit, we're sure.
But, The Muppet's Studio statement reads that, "The role of Kermit the Frog is an iconic one that is beloved by fans and we take our responsibility to protect the integrity of that character very seriously.
"We raised concerns about Steve’s repeated unacceptable business conduct over a period of many years and he consistently failed to address the feedback."
Well, we guess the sassy little frog has had his time.
His new voice will be played by Matt Vogel.
