"Straight from the set of THE MUNSTERS is your first look at Barbara Carr, the #1 real estate agent in all of Mockingbird Heights," ran the message accompanying the image. "Barbara is played by none other the CASSANDRA PETERSON. Yes, the Mistress of the Dark has joined the cast of THE MUNSTERS."

The original Munsters, about a family of amiable monsters, originally ran on CBS 1964-66.

Last October, Zombie confirmed on Instagram that the movie will star Jeff Daniel Phillips as Herman Munster, Sheri Moon Zombie as Lily Munster, and Dan Roebuck as Grandpa Munster.
