Robert Englund is set to reprise his iconic “A Nightmare on Elm Street” character Freddy Krueger for an appearance on ABC’s “The Goldbergs” for the upcoming Halloween episode of its sixth season.
The episode, “Nightmare on Elk Avenue,” centers on the fears of teenage protagonist Adam after seeing “A Nightmare on Elm Street” when it premiered way back in 1984. Englund calls his return a “spooky valentine to the fans.”
This follows a trend for the series which has used notable 1980s stars like Rick Moranis and Rick Springfield as guest stars in episodes. The new season premieres on September 26th.
