A Reboot of 'The Munsters' In In The Works

A Reboot of 'The Munsters' In In The Works

Thanks to Jill Kargman, Seth Meyers and Mike Shoemaker, the oddball family of monsters is not only making a comeback, but they're also moving to Brooklyn according to Deadline.

The series will reportedly reimagine the fan-favorite show as a half-hour single-camera comedy that will follow the titular horror-inspired family as the navigate life and try to fit in among modern Brooklynites in the New York City bureau's most hipster neighbourhood.

The development "The Munsters" reboot keeps Meyers in business with NBC, where he now hosts the late-night series "Late Night with Seth Meyers". The series starred Fred Gwynne as the patriarchal Herman Munster, a bashful Frankenstein's monster caricature, with Yvonne De Carlo as his vampire wife Lily, Al Lewis as her father, Butch Patrick as their lycanthropic son Eddie, and their "normal" niece, Marilyn, played by Beverley Owen and Pat Priest in the series.

The original series aired for two seasons and 70 episodes from 1964-1966. Nowadays, Netflix and Hulu have all the original series, and major television networks have reboots.

There's no word yet on when we'll get to see the new Munsters, but Kargman is writing the first script.

The popular 60s comedy show "The Munsters" is coming back to our screens with a second attempt at a #Reboot, with #Seth Meyers executive producing.

NBC and Universal tried to reboot the series before with the pilot Mockingbird Lane, which had a larger budget. A couple years ago NBC and Universal looked into rebooting the show with Bryan Fuller (Hannibal, Pushing Daisies, American Gods) set to write. Now, it appears that the promise NBC's chief Bob Greenblatt made in 2013 to bring The Munsters back is finally happening.
