"The Munsters" will get a reboot on NBC with the help of Seth Meyers, Variety reported Thursday. Oh yeah, and they're moving to Brooklyn.

The original comedy series "The Munsters," which starred Fred Gwynne as Herman Munster, aired for two seasons from 1964-1966, Variety said. One of the biggest differences between the original and reboot version will be location.

Instead of a fictional suburban California setting, the Munster family will be trying to adjust to its hipster neighbors in Brooklyn, Variety said. Meyers, of "Late Night with Seth Meyers," will be executive producer with Mike Shoemaker.

Jill Karaman will also executive produce and write the script. Deadline.com noted that she was the executive producer and star of the critically praised Bravo comedy series "Odd Mom Out."

"The Munsters" is NBC's second announced reboot of an old series for next season. The network is bringing back the 1980s hit "Miami Vice," which will be produced by Vin Diesel and Chris Morgan, Deadline said.

The last attempt to reboot "The Munsters" came in 2012 when a pilot starring Jerry O'Connell as Herman Munster and Portia de Rossi as Lily aired as a Halloween special on NBC, but the network decided not to order the series, Deadline said.

Meyers already had "AP Bio" in the pipeline for NBC, which was announced earlier this year. That green-lighted comedy series features a cynical Ivy League professor who loses out on his dream job and goes to work as a high school biology teacher where he imposes his unorthodox teaching style and uses the kids to plot his revenge.

Some on social media complained about rebooting a series that many baby boomers have fond memories of.
