In the end, NBC passed on the proposed reboot of The Munsters and the special was all it turned out to be.

"The Munsters" starred Fred Gwynne as Frankenstein's monster Herman Munster, Yvonne De Carlo as mother and bride of Frankenstein Lily Munster, Al Lewis as vampire Grandpa Munster, Beverly Owen as teenage niece Marilyn and Butch Patrick as the werewolf son Eddie Munster.

According to Deadline, Meyers, formerly of Saturday Night Live and now of Late Night with Seth Meyers, is executive producing The Munsters reboot for NBC through his production company Sethmaker Shoemeyers Productions.

Kargman was the one to come up with the new idea, and she later teamed up with Meyers and NBC. Kargman is writing the script and also executive-producing alongside Meyers. Universal TV is the studio. The original series was set in the California suburbs. Though it had a relatively short lifespan, The Munsters swept up a massive following in syndication.

Do any of you remember the attempted reboot of The Munsters titled "Mockingbird Lane" back in 2012 by Bryan Fuller?

Welcome back to 1313 Mockingbird Lane. The pilot aired on Halloween 2012, but the darker, dramatic take did not get picked up to series.

There has been no word yet as to when The Munsters reboot will start production, nor when it will premiere on NBC.

NBC decided not to follow through with the series, despite its warm response (regardless if the new Herman looked nothing like his classic counterpart).
