ABC tired: Killing off a “significant” character on Modern Family. ABC wired: Booking one of the most terrifying serial killers in cinematic history on The Goldbergs and hoping nobody sustains any clawed glove-related injuries. Such fun will be happening with none other than Freddy Krueger — Robert Englund’s OG Freddy Krueger, no less — for the sitcom’s upcoming Halloween episode, with Englund reprising his role for the first time in 15 years. How exactly did The Goldbergs persuade Englund to dust off his blood-splattered fedora for the nostalgic occasion, you ask? We have no idea — but a video teases that there isn’t a Mrs. Krueger and he likes getting his claws done at the local beauty shop. Start swooning, ladies!
