Rob Zombie’s The Munsters Will Go Head to Head With Tim Burton’s Wednesday On Netflix This Fall


When it was first announced by NBC, it was believed that Rob Zombie‘s reboot of horror-comedy series The Munsters would be released via their streaming service Peacock. But now, it looks like the movie is going to Netflix — and it’s got some stiff competition.

As Zombie pointed out on his Instagram, The Munsters will air at the same time as Tim Burton‘s live-action Addams Family series Wednesday. Rob is stoked about the so-called Clash of the Titans:

“This fall we are gonna spook-out like it’s 1964! ????Yep, THE MUNSTERS and THE ADDAMS FAMILY are returning to the boob tube at the same time courtesy of @netflix ☠️ It’s been 58 years since this clash of the titans first happened. ???? Perfect entertainment for your pumpkin carving party. ???? ????Check out this wicked fall preview issue of TV Guide for the 64-65 season I found while cleaning . ???????????????????????? Wacky monster fans unite! ☠️☠️☠️☠️ #themunsters #theaddamsfamily #robzombie #timburton

This will be interesting, because these two properties are taking very different approaches. Zombie’s Munsters remake is a straight-up live-action cartoon, and is super goofball. Meanwhile, Wednesday is going ultra-goth, and will undoubtedly have a bigger budget because Tim Burton is a more reliable and respected return than Rob Zombie. So basically, you’re going to have psychobilly-leaning metal kids on one side, and Halloween goth teens on the other.
