The Munsters to Get a “Reimagining” in New Series Called 1313

[Editor’s Note: an earlier version of this article used language from a Deadline article that stated 1313 would be a “dark reimagining.” Universal Studio Group has since corrected this to read as a simple “reimagining” of “a horror series that lives and breathes within the Universal Monsterverse.”]

The 1964 television series, The Munsters, was a sitcom affair, more full of laughs than moments of sheer terror. And Universal Studio Group, who holds rights to The Munsters as part of their “Universal Monsterverse,” is taking another look at the suburban supernatural family.

According to Deadline, Universal is working on a series called 1313, which is a “reimagining” of The Munsters. The title comes from the home address of the family in the original show: 1313 Mockingbird Lane in the fictional town of Mockingbird Heights, California.

This isn’t the first reboot of The Munsters in recent history. In 2022, Rob Zombie released a film centered on the family, which received mixed reviews.

We don’t know much more about this upcoming take on The Munsters other than Lindsey Anderson Beer is on board to showrun. Beer’s previous credits include writing and directing the critically maligned Pet Sematary: Bloodlines, which currently has a 22% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and also penning scripts for other announced projects in development (or development limbo), such as Short Circuit and an adaptation of Patrick Rothfuss’ The Kingkiller Chronicle.

Horror legend James Wan (Saw, The Conjuring, Malignant) and Ingrid Bisu are working with Beer to develop the series. No news yet on whether the show will go into production or, if it does, what network/streamer it will end up on. icon-paragraph-end
