One of the scariest Halloween Villains? Boogymen? Monsters?….Creepy guys?
Well whatever he is, Freddy Krueger is coming back to your (small) screen…and nightmares
Robert Englund, the ORIGINAL, Freddy Krueger himself will be on the Halloween episode of the TV Show “The Goldbergs”.
The Goldbergs is a sitcom based in the 80s. The series was created using footage Adam ,11 year old son, filmed as a kid of his loud and loving family. It’s pretty much like a dysfunctional “Wonder Years”
—Back to the Freddy Krueger stuff–
This is big news because it’s been 15 years since we’ve seen Robert Englund as Freddy in “Freddy v Jason”. Since then, Robert refused to play the role of Freddy because he (Robert) was “too old”. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly last year he said:
“If I do a fight scene now, it’s got to be real minimal because I can’t snap my head for eight different takes and different angles. My spine gets sore. I can still be mean and scary, but I’m mostly relegated now to sort of Van Helsing roles, old doctors and s‑‑‑. So it’s fun that the last moment of me ever playing Freddy is a wink to the audience.”
Well at 71, Robert will be back on Halloween as Freddy in The Goldbergs Halloween episode named “Nightmare on Elk Avenue”.
Season 6 of The Goldbergs premiers Wednesday night at 8 on ABC.
