WATCH: Robert Englund is back on our screens as Freddy this Halloween – but not as you think

September 26th, 2018 by Marc Comments

I’m not going to lie, I’ve never watched The Goldbergs… so the cat is out of the bag before I even get the ball rolling.


This Halloween I will be watching it because it will see the return of the legendary Robert Englund as the legendary knightmare stalker, Freddy Krueger.

Yes, the actor, despite saying he’d never be in the mask, gloves and stripey top again, is back.

And it makes sense as the series itself takes place in the 1980s when Freddy was truly making his mark on the world.

The episode is called A Nightmare on Elk Avenue – we’re guessing that where The Goldbergs live in the series?

Check Englund out as Freddy in the teaser below with the show’s star Wendi McLendon-Covey.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
