The strange and loveable monsters of 1313 Mockingbird Lane will make it back to TV after all -- for one night only.

Bryan Fuller's hour-long pilot Mockingbird Lane, an updated spin on the classic 1960's sitcom The Munsters, will air on NBC as a pre-Halloween treat on Friday, October 26 at 8pm.

Broadway and television star Jerry O'Connell leads the cast as Herman Munster, with Portia de Rossi as Lily, Eddie Izzard as Grandpa, Cheyenne Jackson as Scout Master Steve, Charity Wakefield as Marilyn Munster, Mason Cook as Eddie Munster, and Beth Grant as Maryanne.

NBC has reportedly not decided whether to proceed with Mockingbird Lane as a series, but strong ratings for the special might influence their decision.
