Fans may not have immediately put someone like Zombo high atop their list of original characters that they’d love to see Rob Zombie bring back for this “Munsters” reboot, but that’s exactly what they’re going to get. Honestly, this is exactly the kind of deep pull we’d expect from a super-fan like Rob Zombie. The director breathlessly announced the news on his Instagram account, alongside the caption of:
💀After 56 years! The man… the myth… the legend returns! 💀 The one and only ZOMBO! 💀
We get the feeling he’s slightly overstating things for the sake of the joke, but that’s half the fun here for a property as beloved as this one, after all!
To this point, we know that Zombie’s “Munsters” film will be rated PG and will even star an original cast member from the series in Pat Priest. Other actors starring in the film include Jeff Daniel Phillips, Evan Rachel Wood, Daniel Roebuck, Cassandra Peterson, Sylvester McCoy, Jorge Garcia, and more. The Rob Zombie film doesn’t have a release date just yet (expect it to premiere in theaters and on Peacock sometime this year), but any fans eager to fill that “Munsters”-shaped hole in their lives can help the wait go by a little easier by streaming both seasons (and all 70 total episodes) of the original series on Peacock.
