Another Munsters Reboot in the Works at NBC

Meyers, of "Late Night with Seth Meyers", will be executive producer with Mike Shoemaker.

The planned reboot is inspired by the original series and will follow an offbeat family determined to stay true to themselves struggles to fit in in hipster Brooklyn.

In 2012, NBC and Universal attempted to reboot the property under the helm of Star Trek: Discovery's Bryan Fuller. At that point she turned to Meyers to help EP the show seeing as he already had a producing deal with Universal TV.

As reported by the Hollywood Reporter, there have been a series of attempts at reboots in recent times, some of which were successful, while others failed horribly.

The original family in the 60s show lived at 1313 Mockingbird Lane in Mockingbird Heights, which was said to be a suburb in California.

The planned series will be a half-hour, single-camera sitcom.

Created by Allan Burns and Chris Hayward, the original The Munsters ran for seventy episodes across two seasons from 1964 to 1966.

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

Though reboots have become increasingly popular in the television scene as of late, NBC's success with reviving once-dormant series has been hit and miss.

The show aired as a Halloween special and was not ordered to series. Herman was married to Grandpa's daughter Lily, played by Yvonne De Carlo. 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. Now, it appears that the promise NBC's chief Bob Greenblatt made in 2013 to bring The Munsters back is finally happening.
