NBC will reboot the series with the help of Seth Meyers and Odd Mom Out creator Jill Kargman, EW can confirm.
The new Munsters series will gain inspiration from the original, but the half-hour single-camera sitcom is making one major change to the classic family -NBC is taking The Munsters to NY. It reteamed Fred Gwynne, who played 151-year-old laboratory creation Herman Munster, with Al Lewis, who played the ancient vampire Grandpa, from the '50s comedy auto 54 Where Are You? This week, the show in question that is definitely being rebooted is The Munsters. Universal TV will produce. The new reboot of The Munsters goes back to the way it was in the beginning and sets it back to a half-hour comedy, just like it did in the 1960s on CBS. Regardless of your feelings of the concept, Variety has confirmed that Seth Meyers is producing another reboot of The Munsters. After a false start a few years back, the Munsters are finally returning to the small screen - and 1313 Mockingbird Lane is apparently moving postcodes.
NBC made an attempt at reviving The Munsters as an hour-long comedy called Mockingbird Lane in 2012.
The Munsters is perhaps one of the most well-known horror-comedy shows to come out of the post-golden age of television, an era which also featured The Addams Family that aired during the same two years. The the project never became a full-fledged series, the big-budget pilot episode - directed by Bryan Singer and starring Jerry O'Connell as Herman Munster, Portia de Rossi as Lily, Eddie Izzard as Grandpa and Charity Wakefield as Marilyn - aired as a Halloween special.
"I won't say we won't do another version of The Munsters again..."
