Seth Meyers Rebooting The Munsters for NBC

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

The pilot episode aired in October of 2012 as a Halloween special, but NBC announced in December of 2012 that it would not be taking Mockingbird Lane to series.

Sometimes compared to The Addams Family, which was a television comedy based on Charles Addams' comic sitcom, The Munsters premiered in 1964 and ran to 1966. This week, the show in question that is definitely being rebooted is The Munsters. NBC will reboot the series with the help of Seth Meyers and Odd Mom Out creator Jill Kargman, EW can confirm.

The popular 60s comedy show "The Munsters" is coming back to our screens with a second attempt at a #Reboot, with #Seth Meyers executive producing. Beverly Owen, and later Pat Priest, played the horrifyingly normal teenager Marilyn.

The reboot, which is being developed as a half-hour single-camera show, "follows members of an offbeat family who are determined to stay true to themselves but struggle to fit in in hipster Brooklyn", according to Deadline.

NBC hasn't revealed premiere dates for either of the rebooted series.

Kargman is set to write the script for the upcoming Munsters series, and will executive produce alongside Meyers and his producing partner Mike Shoemaker under the Sethmaker Shoemeyers Productions banner. Kargman came up with the new take on the idea. It was an hour-long series written by Bryan Fuller, with Bryan Singer directing. Now, it appears that the promise NBC's chief Bob Greenblatt made in 2013 to bring The Munsters back is finally happening.

Among the characters, the original family featured a sweet Frankenstein's monster, a loveable Dracula and a young version of Wolfman.
