A character from the original television series, Rob Zombie has announced today that Zombo will return in his upcoming feature film The Munsters, set for release later this year.

Zombie teases, “After 56 years! The man… the myth… the legend returns!”

Horror host Zombo, Eddie’s favorite television personality, was introduced in Season 2 of the original black & white series. The premise of the episode, fittingly titled “Zombo,” is that Herman Munster becomes jealous of how much Eddie loves Zombo, desperate to win back his son’s undivided attention. Hijinks ensue when he humorously tries to upstage Zombo.

The original Zombie was played by the late Louis Nye.

Jeff Daniel Phillips is playing Herman Munster and Sheri Moon Zombie is playing Lily Munster in Zombie’s movie, with Daniel Roebuck co-starring as Grandpa Munster.

Richard Brake (31, 3 from Hell) is playing Dr. Henry Augustus Wolfgang. Catherine Schell (“Space: 1999,” The Return of the Pink Panther) is playing “Zoya Krupp the gypsy queen.”

Dee Wallace, Cassandra “Elvira” Peterson and Jorge Garcia will also star.

If you want to revisit the original series, “The Munsters” is streaming on Peacock. That series ran for just two seasons between 1964 and 1966, spawning several feature films and a sequel television series titled “The Munsters Today” (1988 – 1991). Most recently, Bryan Fuller’s “Mockingbird Lane” reimagined the series for NBC, but never made it past a pilot episode.
