Watch Robert Englund Bring Back "Freddy Krueger" On 'The Goldbergs'

October 22, 2018

On a special Halloween edition of the hit ABC comedy The Goldbergs, actor Robert Englund once more reprises his iconic character Freddy Krueger from the Nightmare On Elm Street movies.

Appropriately titled 'Nightmare on Elk Avenue', the episode centers on Adam (Sean Giambrone) after watching A Nightmare on Elm Street for the first time, back in 1984. His mom, Beverly (Wendi McLendon-Covey) isn't even phased by Freddy's appearance as she refers to him as "Mr. Knifey Hands."

We last saw the 71 year-old Englund don the "Freddy" mask on the big screen in 2003's Freddy vs. Jason.

The Goldbergs episode with Freddy Krueger airs on Wednesday, October 24.
