For those who have been keeping tabs on the Rob Zombie-led The Munsters reboot, you would have known that it had been established the film would be coming out this fall. You would also know that it would be released around the same time as Wednesday, reigniting a rivalry that existed in the 1960s. Well, now we have finally been given the exact release date for The Munsters. The reboot of everyone’s favorite monstrous family is going to be on September 27th on Netflix. Even more exciting is the film will also release on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD on the same day.

The Munsters reboot has been a long time coming, and Rob Zombie has been teasing fans plenty on his own Instagram page. You have to hand it to the man; he sure knows how to promote his own work. The film received a full trailer around a month ago, which excited fans even more. Now, we can all finally see what Zombie has been working on all this time. There will be a collector’s edition available, which is part of the home releases, that is said to have over 100 hours of extra footage, including a ton of behind-the-scenes footage with Rob Zombie and the cast of the reboot.

The Munsters reboot follows Herman Munster as he begins to court Lily Munster. Well, we are not sure what her maiden name is, but we are sure to find out when the film releases next month. The love story looks to be as silly as the 1960s show was, including plenty of Grandpa Munster wanting to hit people in the head with his shovel. In the main three roles is Sheri Moon Zombie as Lily Munster, Jeff Daniel Phillips as Herman Munster, and Daniel Roebuck as Grandpa Munster. Joining them are Richard Blake, Jorge Garcia, Sylvester McCoy, Catherine Shell, and Tomas Boykin. Rob Zombie even was able to secure original The Munsters actors Butch Patrick and Pat Priest. He also added horror icon, Cassandra Peterson aka Elvira.

Rob Zombie is usually a horror director, that showcases plenty of gore and adult situations in his films. All three of the main Munsters were featured in 3 From Hell, which was the final film in the trilogy that started with House of 1000 Corpses. In fact, 3 From Hell was Zombie’s last written and directed film, which was released in 2019. Now, we are going to see an entirely new directorial look at the man’s vision. The Munsters reboot has been rated PG, and from the looks of it, it looks to hold true to the original sitcom in every way imaginable.

The Munsters reboot is busting onto Netflix on September 27th, and those who are eager to own the film can also do so with the many take-home mediums the film is also being released on. We are quite excited to see how Rob Zombie has approached this film, and we wonder if it will lead to a bigger franchise. We can’t wait to see The Munsters return next month.
