Robert Englund will be reprising his most iconic role as Freddy Krueger this Halloween on the ABC sitcom The Goldbergs, as we previously told you. However, we now have a few on-set pics and stills from the episode, titled ‘Mister Knifey-Hands’. It is set to air on Wendesday, October 24.
This is the first time Englund has donned the iconic make-up as Freddy since 2003 for Freddy Vs Jason. At age 71, it may also be the last time we see him in it. With its focus on 80’s nostalgia, and the respect it gives to those subjects, I expect this one will go over huge with both fans of the show, and fans of the Springwood Slasher.
Check out the pics and details of the episode below!
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.
