The show followed a family of friendly figures, all of whom were based on various horror movie tropes, and served to satirize popular family-focused programs of the era.

Although the series was only produced for a total of two seasons, it has since enjoyed a healthy resurgence in syndication. 

Five films based on the show and its characters were produced in the years after The Munsters’ cancellation.

A revival of the program, entitled The Munsters Today, later made its debut in 1988 and featured the show’s cast attempting to adapt to life in the 1980s.

Seth Meyers also tried to revamp The Munsters in 2017, with his efforts eventually falling flat with network executives.

In addition to helming the forthcoming flick, the singer also penned its screenplay and serves as one of its producers.
