Will There Be a Married With Children Spinoff?
Last month I reported that the hit 90s show “Full House” was working on creating a much needed spinoff and now it looks like another television classic is going down the same route. The Fox comedy show, “Married…With Children” is looking to return to television, only this time it would focus on David Faustino’s character, Bud Bundy. Apparently Sony Pictures Television is currently trying to pitch this new series, although Sony TV has yet to comment.
Of course there’s no network deal in place yet, so anything can happen, but since Sony TV is pitching the series, things seem to be heading in the right direction. Even at Katey Sagal’s Hollywood walk of Fame ceremony last week, her co-star on “Married…With Children”, Christina Applegate teased audiences that there may be some sort of reunion happening in the near future. She said, “We’re going to do something with Dave maybe. I don’t know if it will be in character. But I don’t really know. I don’t know what that’s going to be. I don’t know if I’m allowed to speak on that at all. So I should probably stop talking about it right now!”
Okay, so Faustino is obviously in, but what about the rest of the cast? Sure, Sagal would have a lot more free time now that her current series, “Sons of Anarchy” is coming to a close, but Ed O’Neill? He certainly seems to be doing quite well for himself starring on the super popular and successful 20th Century Fox studios series, “Modern Family”. Maybe then O’Neill would make a few guest appearances here and there? How can you have a “Married…With Children” spinoff without any mention of Ed Bundy? Come on now. When Sagal was asked about a reunion last week, though, she responded, “We’ve talked about [a reunion] every year, but then there are so many pieces that have to be in alignment that for some reason it never happens. But we love each other. Well, we’re all working now, so it’s hard to find the time!”
Would you tune into a “Married…With Children” spinoff that was focused on Bud Bundy?
