TV’s original American horror story is taking another step toward returning to primetime: NBC has ordered a pilot of Bryan Fuller’s remake of the classic TV show The Munsters.
The new version of the half-hour sitcom is bring re-imagined by the Pushing Daises creator as an hour-long series exploring how the monster house came about, and will have a darker and less campy feel than the black-and-white original.
The Munsters was launched the same year as the rather similar Addams Family, which goes to show in this season of dueling fairy tale dramas (Grimm, Once Upon a Time) that networks haven’t changed all that much. While Addams was based off Charles Addams’ New Yorker cartoons, the Munsters patriarch Herman was basically a play on Frankenstein.
There’s a couple other projects that could impact The Munsters‘ fate. NBC is also developing a remake of Frankenstein from House producers Garrett Lerner and Russel Friend, while Fuller is working on another monstrous project for NBC

Kinjo note: I just added the original series to my netflix instant que, so when i saw this i giggled. Hollywood, stop bringing everything back for new runs........... How about some originality! lol

First off, the original Munsters is an absolute classic.

Having said that, I've lost the care about remakes that I held like a torch when I was younger. It used to bother me back then, but now it just seems so routine in the television business that I don't even give a damn anymore. I didn't care when they remade Hawaii Five-O, mostly considering I never watched the original nor intended to anyhow. As much as I'd object to remakes of similar shows like Hardcastle & McCormick, Jake & The Fat Man, and Magnum P.I., I never watched more than an episode or two of them, so a remake wouldn't be a major concern for me. Besides, I've got a college education to focus on.
