Be still our hearts.
It may very well be the *last* time Robert Englund plays Freddy Krueger on screen, and the first time since ’03, when he reprises the iconic role on ABC’s “The Goldbergs” later this month, for a special Halloween episode of the ’80s set series. The episode will be airing on Wednesday, October 24, and an image gallery now shows off Englund back as Freddy!
In the episode, titled “Mister Knifey-Hands”…
“Despite Beverly’s wishes, Jackie’s parents allow Adam to watch A Nightmare on Elm Street and a disagreement between the families ensues. But Beverly dreams of facing off with horror icon Freddy Krueger (guest star Robert Englund), which teaches her an important lesson about her son’s relationship with Jackie. Meanwhile, Erica realizes she’s not as popular as she once was as she starts hanging out at William Penn Academy despite the fact she’s no longer a student there.”
Robert Englund is, and always will be, a fucking legend. Preview this Halloween season’s coolest thing below!
And this, Gentlemen and Ladies...is Freddy Krueger! Not this clown...
We want to terrify you!
