The Munsters to Gentrify Brooklyn in NBC Reboot

1313 Mockingbird Lane, Brooklyn, New York. 

NBC's reboot of The Munsters will bring the spooky '60s family to 1313 Mockingbird Lane in Brooklyn, New York, according to Variety. This means you'll soon be seeing Herman sipping overpriced cold brew, Lily shopping at Dumbo's Sunday flea and Grandpa taking ubers into Manhattan, all while gentrifying the neighborhood with their offbeat, monstrous way of life.

The show will be inspired by the classic sitcom, as the Munsters attempt to stay true to themselves in the thick of Brooklyn culture. Originally from a fictional California suburb, they'll be forced to become New Yorkers, and wait out those exhausting train delays while the person next to you smells like warm bodega cat food. Jill Kargman is set to executive produce and write the script, while Seth Meyers and Mike Shoemaker will join as executive producers.

Airing from 1964-1966, the original series had 70 episodes across two seasons. Fred Gwynne played the Frankenstein-inspired father, Yvonne De Carlo the campy mother, Al Lewis the hilarious grandpa, Beverly Owen the normal teenage niece and Butch Patrick the werewolf son. Bryan Fuller attempted to relaunch The Munsters in 2012 with Mockingbird Lane, but it was ultimately shelved after airing as a Halloween special on NBC.
