Based on the IDW comic book of the same name (written by Steve Niles). It revolves around two world renowned monster hunters, Fred and Deloris Allen. The two return home to upstate New York with their children after the death of Fred’s father. But as they settle into a life of normality, Fred and Deloris must hide their secret monster-hunting identities from their kids, while dealing with the fact that their quiet New York town isn’t as peaceful as it might seem.
