'The Munsters' potentially coming back

Second time’s a charm?

NBC and Bryan Fuller attempted to re-animate popular sitcom “The Munsters” back in 2012 with “Mockingbird Lane,” a planned TV series that amounted to nothing more than a one-hour Halloween special. But they’re trying again, Deadline reports tonight.

The network is rebooting “The Munsters” once more as a half-hour, single-camera sitcom that “follows members of an offbeat family who are determined to stay true to themselves but struggle to fit in in hipster Brooklyn.”

Yes, Herman and the gang will deal with hipsters in Brooklyn.

“Odd Mom Out” creator Jill Kargman will write the script and executive produce with Sethmaker Shoemeyers Productions’ Seth Meyers and Mike Shoemaker.

“The Munsters” originally aired for just two seasons between 1964 and 1966.

Last Movie Watched: Jurassic World (2015).
Last TV Show Watched: Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (S3:E18.
Last Video Game Played: Fire Pro Wrestling World (PC).​

A certain ex-friend of mine will already be bitching about it but I will give it a chance. I expect it's probably modernised which I admit, I'm curious to see.

I would prefer a live action movie, if it is half as good as the Addams Family ones.

Yeah, I don't see this reboot working but a movie if done right could get a lot of people interested. I also think the Addams Family would do better now as a rebooted tv show.

Regardless, in honor we should all listen to Dragula as if it were a video game in the early 00's again

Always liked the Munsters. I preferred it over the Addams Family. Mockingbird Lane was ok but I rather have the characters look like monsters.

Please get Brad Garrett for Herman.
