Air date and synopsis for The Goldbergs' Freddy Krueger episode

The Goldbergs Robert Englund Wendi McLendon-Covey

A couple weeks ago, we learned that Robert Englund will be reprising the role of horror icon / dream stalker Freddy Krueger in an upcoming episode of the ABC sitcom The Goldbergs. Now we know the title of the episode, have a little more information on what it's about, and most importantly, we know when it's going to air.

Titled Mister Knifey-Hands, the episode will be broadcast on ABC Wednesday, October 24th.

Here's the synopsis: 

Despite Beverly’s wishes, Jackie’s parents allow Adam to watch “A Nightmare on Elm Street” and a disagreement between the families ensues. But Beverly dreams of facing off with horror icon Freddy Krueger (guest star Robert Englund), which teaches her an important lesson about her son’s relationship with Jackie. Meanwhile, Erica realizes she’s not as popular as she once was as she starts hanging out at William Penn Academy despite the fact she’s no longer a student there.

Englund's co-stars on the episodes will include Wendi McLendon-Covey as Beverly, Sean Giambrone as Adam, Alexis G. Zall as Jackie, and Hayley Orrantia as Erica. The show is narrated by Patton Oswalt and also features Troy Gentile, George Segal, and Jeff Garlin among its regulars.

I've only seen a couple episodes of The Goldbergs (the ones that were directed by Kevin Smith), and they were goofy fun. I'm really looking forward to seeing Englund play Freddy again on this upcoming episode.
