But Herman wasn't the only monstrous entity in the household: Herman's wife, Lily (Yvonne DeCarlo), was a vampire, as was her father, Grandpa (Al Lewis); while Herman and Lily's son, Eddie (Butch Patrick), was a wolf-boy.

I hear the project originated with Kargman, who came up with a new take on the classic sitcom, which ran on CBS for two seasons from 1964-66. In addition, the network recently ordered the Meyers-produced comedy "A.P. Bio" to series.

The Hollywood Reporter confirms that The Munsters is getting a second reboot treatment, this time with NBC.

It looks like the folks at NBC are itching to reboot America's first family of horror, those lovable Munsters, yet again. Seth Meyers is one of the executive producers and the show is being helmed by Jill Kargman whose book Momzillas was turned into series Odd Mom Out.

The reboot, which is being developed as a half-hour single-camera show, "follows members of an offbeat family who are determined to stay true to themselves but struggle to fit in in hipster Brooklyn", according to Deadline. The next in a television reboot trend that includes, but is not limited to, Roseanne, Miami Vice, and Will & Grace, is classic monster comedy series, The Munsters.

The original family in the 60s show lived at 1313 Mockingbird Lane in Mockingbird Heights, which was said to be a suburb in California.

NBC and Universal tried to reboot the series before with the pilot Mockingbird Lane, which had a larger budget. It aired as a Halloween special in 2012 but didn't go forward as a series. Now, it appears that the promise NBC's chief Bob Greenblatt made in 2013 to bring The Munsters back is finally happening.
