The Munsters: NBC Developing (Another) Reboot with Seth Meyers

'The Munsters' Reboot In Works At NBC From Jill Kargman & Seth Meyers

It looks like the folks at NBC are itching to reboot America's first family of horror, those lovable Munsters, yet again.

The sitcom was only the second most famous monster show of the era, but was wildly popular during its two-season, 70-episode run from 1964 to 1966. The only member of the Munsters' household who was human was Lily's niece Marilyn (Pat Priest). Titled Mockingbird Lane, the creatives behind the project produced an expensive pilot helmed by X-Men director Bryan Singer and starring Jerry O'Connell, Portia de Rossi, and Eddie Izzard.

NBC is rebooting the 1960s classic "The Munsters" with Seth Meyers and "Odd Mom Out" creator Jill Kargman, according to Deadline. "Hailing from Universal TV, the project will be written and executive produced by Kargman, and produced by Sethmaker Shoemeyers Productions" Meyers and Mike Shoemaker (The Awesomes).

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. This is of course in contrast to the original series, which took place in the fictional California suburb Mockingbird Heights.

We'll see which category The Munsters falls into, and will bring you updates on casting and other details as we know it!

Since NBC is owned by Universal, hopefully the network will dictate that The Munsters take on their original forms, instead of trying to reinterpret the likes of Herman Munster for modern audiences. The network simply needs to capture the nostalgia to draw in viewers of the genre to help build the show's audience.
