That’s a wrap on The Munsters. For several months, Rob Zombie has been working on his new take on the classic comedy series with filming taking place in Budapest. On Thursday, the filmmaker shared a final batch of photos on Instagram featuring his three lead stars to announce that filming has been officially completed. Now, post-production begins as Zombie departs the specially-constructed 1313 Mockingbird Lane set to head back home.

“Well, that’s a wrap on everyone involved with THE MUNSTERS!” Zombie says in the caption. “Thanks Budapest you’ve been great. Enjoy your new Mockingbird Lane. Next stop the airport.”

Herman Munster actor Jeff Daniel Phillips added in the comments, “It’s hard to leave all our new friends! Thank you dear Budapest!”

It was more than just 1313 Mockingbird Lane that Zombie had constructed for his reboot of The Munsters. The house was designed to look as it did in the original sitcom, as it was important for Zombie to make his reboot very faithful to its source material. But the director went the extra mile by having all of the neighboring houses on Mockingbird Lane built from scratch as well. This has been a project Zombie has been chasing since the start of his filmmaking career so it’s understandable why he’s putting in extra effort to make everything perfect.

Rob Zombie has made no secrets about the fact that he adores The Munsters. Not only does he appreciate the show’s main characters, he enjoys all the most minor characters as well. There are many characters appearing in the new film who had only shown up very briefly in the original series. But for Zombie, it seems he wanted to include as many references and Easter eggs as possible as a way of paying homage to the original while moving forward with his new vision of the creepy monster family.

The movie stars Jeff Daniel Phillips, Sheri Moon Zombie, and Dan Roebuck respectively as Herman, Lily, and The Count, a.k.a. Grandpa Munster. Original Munsters stars Pat Priest and Butch Patrick have special roles in the film while other cast members include Richard Brake as Dr. Henry Augustus Wolfgang, Sylvester McCoy as Igor, Jorge Garcia as Floop, Catherine Schell as Zoya Krupp, Cassandra Peterson as Barbara Carr, Tomas Boykin as Lester, Jeremy Wheeler as Mr. Gateman, and Dee Wallace as the voice of Good Morning Transylvania.
