Seth Meyers takes on 'Munsters' reboot at NBC

There’s darn, darn, darn good news for fans of The Munsters.

NBC and studio Universal TV are working on a reboot of the beloved 1960s comedy, with Late Night host Seth Meyers and Jill Kargman (Odd Mom Out) as executive producers.

It marks NBC’s second attempt in recent years to revive the comedy, which centered on a sweet family of lovable monsters, including versions of Frankenstein’s monster, Dracula and the Wolfman — or, in that case, Wolfboy.

Fred Gwynne, Yvonne De Carlo and Al Lewis starred in the two-season comedy, which many generations have seen in reruns.

Hannibal‘s Bryan Fuller made a pilot, Mockingbird Lane, in 2012 but it did not make it to series. 

The latest version, to be written by Kargman, moves the TV family. In the original series, the Munsters lived in suburban Los Angeles, but the reboot is set in New York as the “offbeat family … struggles to fit in in hipster Brooklyn.”
