Horror king Rob Zombie’s version of The Munsters is officially headed to Netflix.
In a recent instagram post Zombie let fans know that Netflix will be flashing back to 1964/65 this September as it launches both his version of The Munsters and Tim Burton’s new Addams Family series Wednesday.
The two shows originally went head to head on viewers screens 58 years ago. The original The Munsters and The Addams Family both ran from 1964-66. Both presented the colorful lives of monster-like families. Unfortunately, they were tragically short lived. Even though The Munsters’ ratings were generally higher than those of The Addams Family, when Batman hit screens in the same timeslot and began to best The Munsters‘ ratings the show was dropped. The Addams Family on the other hand, fell prey to those low ratings. However, both shows have been revived as successful movies and fans are excited to see these new projects.
Starring Jeff Daniel Phillips as Herman Munster, Sheri Moon Zombie as Lily Munster, and Daniel Roebuck as The Count, The Munsters follows Lily and Herman’s crazy courtship from Transylvania to Hollywood on a hauntingly hilarious trip.
You can check out the trailer here, and then check it out in September when it hits Netflix.
