And it’s all thanks to the classic tradition of the sitcom Halloween episode.
The sitcom in question is The Goldbergs, a take on a family in 1980s Philadelphia presented through the viewpoint of their youngest child, Adam (Sean Glambrone). And this Halloween, the Goldberg family is getting a pretty spooky visitor in the form of Freddy Krueger, played by Robert Englund himself.
This isn’t exactly a Nightmare on Elm Street revival, but for fans of ‘80s kitsch and Freddy’s dreamy looks, this might still be a treat. You can watch the goofy, playful little trailer for his appearance below. Freddy’s done weirder things, anyway.

Whether we'll get the special Halloween episode in the UK in time for 31st October this year remains to be seen. Season 6 of The Goldbergs starts in the US on Wednesday, but there's as yet no UK release date.
