​"One, two, Freddy's coming for you..." again, hopefully.

Iconic horror actor ​Robert Englund might've just teased he'll be reprising the role of Freddy Krueger, if only for one more time. Ahead of his cameo for the Halloween episode of The Goldbergs this week, in which he will play the infamous villain, Englund spoke of the possibility of (another) A Nightmare on Elm Street reboot and his involvement.

While Englund has seemed adamant about his retirement from Krueger in the past, during a chat with Access Live earlier this week, his attitude seemed to have changed.

“I think they want to reboot the franchise, but they’re gonna need a new actor,” Englund began. “They’re gonna need a new actor to play Freddy because they’re gonna have to do eight of them. I might have one left in me ... but yeah.” One left!

We're not sure how A Nightmare on Elm Street should be revisited in an original enough way to attract big audiences, but if the new Halloween's ​record-breaking opening weekend box office numbers prove anything, it's that fans love their classic ​horror villains.

Robert Englund just has to reprise the role now.
