Sony Is Reportedly Developing a ‘Married…with Children’ Spin-Off

By

Fox’s hit sitcom Married… with Children, which ran for 11 seasons on the network from 1987-1997, might be getting its own spin-off. According to a report by E! News, Sony Television Pictures is currently considering a series based around the present-day life of Bud Bundy played by David Faustino. Talks are early and no deals are yet in place, but at Katey Sagal’s Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony this week, Christina Applegate said they’re “going to do something with Dave maybe. I don’t know if it will be in character … I don’t know if I’m allowed to speak on that at all. So I should probably stop talking about it right now!”

Sagal currently appears in FX’s Sons of Anarchy – now in its final season – while Ed “Al Bundy” O’Neill has been very busy working on the award show dominator Modern Family, so it’s unclear whether they will return for roles in the spin-off or if the show will only focus on Bud. “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,” Sagal told E! “But we love each other. Well, we’re all working now, so it’s hard to find the time!”
