After the failed rehash that was 2012’s oddly named Mockingbird Lane, NBC is zapping new life into the decades old Munsters franchise with a second attempt at rebooting. And this time Herman and the gang will be facing the only creatures that might be stranger than themselves……..
I’m so radically different, just like all my other friends
Sure, making fun of hipsters and their stupid hats hasn’t been funny since 2013, but thats not stopping NBC giving it a shot. The new Munster series “follows members of an offbeat family who are determined to stay true to themselves but struggle to fit in in hipster Brooklyn.”
Seth Meyers is on board as an executive producer, but little else is currently known about the project; casting, show runners, and a general sense of who actually wants this have yet to be revealed.
The original Munster’s series has had quite the impact in pop culture, especially given it only lasted two seasons (granted those seasons amounted to a respectable 70 episode run.) It’s at least had more staying power than wearing bow ties with your skinny jeans.
