We’re getting our first look at Robert Englund as Freddy Krueger in the upcoming Halloween episode of the popular sit-com The Goldbergs.
It has been just over 15 years since we saw Englund wear the glove in any official capacity on screen. Englund had said 2003’s Freddy Vs. Jason would be his last dance with the role he made legend, it now looks like we have one more chance to meet the man of our dreams.
The Halloween episode of The Goldbergs is set to air October 24th. 1….2…. Freddy’s Coming For You……
I personally haven’t watched The Goldbergs but thought the scenario of looking at 80’s pop culture through a modern lens would be a lot of fun. In the past the show has had guest stars like Rick Springfield and Rick Moranis on to add to their own love of the 80s.
In some episodes they deal with pop culture milestones like the release of Return Of The Jedi and even tonight are paying homage to John Hughes Films.
Well this Halloween one horror icon is getting his due. Freddy Kruger will be on their Halloween episode. And not only will the character make an appearance but Robert Englund himself will be donning the striped sweater and iconic bladed glove once again. This marks the first time he has portrayed the character in movies or television since 2003’s Freddy vs. Jason. Check out the promo below.
