Disney’s animated hit Frozen is popping up all over the dial on fall TV fare.
The film, which has grossed more than $400 million worldwide since its November release, already has a follow-up set for 2015 with animated short Frozen Fever in the works — an announcement that was made during an ABC primetime special that went behind the scenes of the film that stars Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff and Josh Gad.

Beyond that, ABC’s Disney-infused fairytale drama is poised explore Frozen in a major way, casting its own Elsa (Georgina Haig), Anna (newcomer Elizabeth Lail) and Kristoff (Scott Michael Foster). It’s a storyline that makes sense considering Once is produced by Disney-owned ABC Studios.
But Frozen‘s invasion of fall TV doesn’t stop there. The animated hit can build a snowman with all the references that have popped up in the past week. Fox’s The Mindy Project featured a musical performance with Danny (Chris Messina) playing “Let It Go” on the piano during the season three premiere.
Not to be outdone, New Girl‘s fourth season premiere also had a Frozen dig in it, during which Nick (Jake Johnson) joked that a woman “looked like the snowman from Frozen.” (Both New Girl and Mindy hail from NBC’s Universal Television.)
Coming on Tuesday, MTV’s sophomore comedy Faking It will also see one of its central characters look to attend a Frozen sing-along in costume.
And there’s more coming: Fox’s Glee — which like New Girl and Mindy Project is produced by an outside studio (20th Century Fox TV) — will also take on Frozen‘s impossible-to-forget song “Let It Go” when star Lea Michele takes on the track during its upcoming final season that’s set for 2015.
So what do you think? Is it time for TV to let go of the Frozen jokes and references? Vote in our poll below.
