It's alive! It's alive!

No, wait, it's dead. Sorry, Herman Munster, it doesn't look like the mad science worked this time.

NBC has officially pulled the plug on Mockingbird Lane, the reboot of the classic Munsters series starring Jerry O'Connell and Eddie Izzard.

Series creator Bryan Fuller broke the news to fans. He tweeted:

mockingbird-lane stills munsters pilot halloween nbc jerry oconnell portia derossi

Hold us, we're afraid!

NBC released the first batch of stills for Mockingbird Lane and we're soooo confident the pictures will be terrifying that we've buried our head in our hands!!

Okay, maybe we'll sneak just one peek…

What the…? We thought Mockingbird Lane was a scurrrrry reboot of the classic '60s sitcom, The Munsters!?

This family is CUTE!

Jerry O'Connell and Portia de Rossi are adorbzies as a couple, though something tells us they won't fall in love off screen, LOLz!

And Eddie Izzard should be a fantastic choice to play Grandpa Munster!

Mockingbird Lane premieres October 26 — just in time for Halloween!

Check out more stills from the pilot (below)!

Portia De Rossi Gets Her Spook On With Munsters Re-Boot

Portia De Rossi -- With Ellen -- Is Mama Munster

It's a monster Munster mash!!

Portia de Rossi — of the late and great Arrested Development — just inked a deal with NBC to star as Lily Munster in their remake of the classic ‘60s horror/comedy.

We bet she and Ellen are having SUPER celebratory cuddles in their $18 mil Beverly Hills mansion right now, LOLz!!

Munsters 2.0 will actually be titled Mockingbird Lane.

Show runner Bryan Fuller and director Bryan Singer promise this will be a darker and more macabre version than your parents watched on TV!!

Portia’s matriarchal Munster was originally meant to be played by Mariana Klaveno of True Blood infamy — but she couldn’t get released from the contract on her Marc Cherry Hallmark pilot!

Yup! The same Mark Cherry entangled in that lengthy legal drama with Nicollette Sheridan over her Desperate Housewives departure!!

Portia’s co-stars on Mockingbird Lane include Jerry O’Connell and Eddie Izzard, who will play Herman and Grandpa Munster respectively.

We LOVE the cast so far and we’re really curious to see where NBC ultimately goes with this idea!!

Way to typecast guys! Ha!!

Vampire Beeel's sexy, scurry maker Mariana Klaveno has been offered the part of Lily Munster in Bryan Fuller's Munsters revamp, Mockingbird Lane.

BUT, because Mariana has preexisting deals with ABC's Devious Maids as a series regular, she may not be able to accept the role in the NBC dark comedy!

And even though

We wouldn't have thought of it ourselves, but Jerry O'Connell might just be a fantastic Herman Munster.

The actor has been cast in the role originally made famous by Fred Gwynne in the classic television sitcom about a family of monsters trying to live a normal life in suburbia.

Bryan Singer and Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller are working on the 1-hour pilot, which will be called

Munsters Gets Pushed Back Due To Casting Issues

Filed under: TV News

munsters-reboot-delayed-web.jpg

This reboot is getting harder to manage!

Production has been delayed for pilot for The Munsters, which is now called Mockingbird Lane.

Writer Bryan Fuller has X-Men director Bryan Singer attached to the project but casting is looking a bit difficult.

We admit; casting Frankenstein and two vampires can be a bit tough!
