The Bundys are coming back to television! E! reports this morning that a new take on “Married… With Children” is in the works with plans for a spinoff series to follow the life of David Faustino’s Bud Bundy and, presumably, his new family.
Sony Pictures Television is said to be in the pitch process for the series at the moment with no confirmation as of yet as to who else might return.
“Married… With Children” was created by Ron Leavitt and Michael G. Moye and premiered in 1987, running an impressive 11 seasons. It stars Ed O’Neill as Al Bundy, the begrudging patriarch of a modern-day dysfunctional family with Katey Sagal playing his wife, Peggy, Christina Applegate his daughter, Kelly and Faustino his son, Bud.
“Married… With Children” follows rebooted series like “Girl Meets World” and the upcoming “Full House” as part of an ongoing wave of nostalgia-fueled small screen fare.
