NBC will reboot the series with the help of Seth Meyers and Odd Mom Out creator Jill Kargman, EW can confirm.
According to Deadline, Meyers, formerly of Saturday Night Live and now of Late Night with Seth Meyers, is executive producing The Munsters reboot for NBC through his production company Sethmaker Shoemeyers Productions. The original series followed a family of monsters and starred Fred Gwynne, Yvonne De Carlo, Al Lewis, Butch Patrick, and Pat Priest. Universal TV is also on board to produce.
"I won't say we won't do another version of The Munsters again", NBC chief Bob Greenblatt said in January 2013.
Kargman is writing the script, and will exec produce with Meyers and his producing partner Mike Shoemaker. This is of course in contrast to the original series, which took place in the fictional California suburb Mockingbird Heights. Though it had a relatively short lifespan, The Munsters swept up a massive following in syndication.
Although The Munsters had a small shot at a reboot back in 2012, according to Deadline, NBC only aired a one-hour special for the show that featured Jerry O'Connell in the most popular role of Herman Munster.
Hannibal's Bryan Fuller made a pilot, Mockingbird Lane, in 2012 but it did not make it to series.
There has been no word yet as to when The Munsters reboot will start production, nor when it will premiere on NBC. The new series is aiming to launch sometime next season. On the flip side, the forthcoming Will & Grace refresh seems to be generating a lot of positive buzz.
