    A ‘Married With Children’ Reboot Is In The Works, Which Original Cast Members Are In?
    [​IMG]
    Married with Children co-star David Faustino confirmed that Sony is trying to iron out some legalities in order to get a reboot of Married on the air.

    During an interview at the red carpet premiere for his Married with Children sister Christina Applegate’s new film, Vacation, Faustino stated, “Sony has it. They’re excited about it. They’re working out some legal issues that we hope they work out.” The Married announcement comes on the heels of other reboots from the nineties including Boy Meets World and Full House.

    Married with Children was a sitcom that focused on the exploits of the raunchy yet likable Bundy family. Married ran for eleven seasons and was considered a lifesaver for the Fox network which struggled to compete with the top three networks at that time.

    Though Married with Children was never a big winner in the ratings, it had a loyal fan base, and the controversy surrounding the show’s sexual overtones resulted in a vocal boycott movement because of Married‘s purported disparaging of American family values.

    Ironically, while public outcry today over controversial shows such as Nineteen Kids and Counting has resulted in their removal from programming, the Married with Children boycott increased the show’s ratings and popularity, making Al and Peg Bundy pop culture icons.

    There’s no word yet as to when the new Married project will get under way but the new Married has been rumored to follow the life of Faustino’s character Bud Bundy. Is he married with children? Possibly.

    And a show centered on Bud Buddy is certain to do better than the last (and long forgotten) Married with Children spin off Top of the Heap. But what would this plot mean for the rest of the Married cast?

    Well Married with Children‘s patriarch, Al Bundy, is played by Ed O’Neill and O’Neill is the patriarch of a new family–a Modern Family to be exact. And even though Married matriarch, Peg Bundy, portrayed by Katey Sagal, just wrapped up seven seasons on the Sons of Anarchy, she’s already knee deep in a new series called the The Bastard Executioner.

    Still, Christina Applegate, Faustino’s Married with Children co-star, wanted to be sure to give a glimmer of hope to the die hard Married fans. When asked about the possibility of a spin off, Applegate speaking of her support for Faustino’s idea stated, “All of us have said we would all be there for him,” thus leaving the door wide open for a Bundy family reunion.

    So plop on the couch, put up your feet, and stick your hand in the waistband of your pants, Married with Children fans. Hopefully Al Bundy will be joining you in no time.

    add this to the list of fucked up remakes. The only way the reboot has a chance is if its picked up by a pay channel or Netflix.

    The only re-make of a classic that i've been happy with is Arrested Development on Netflix, I hope they go that route.. :pray:

    "Robin, I had been thinking of doing a reboot of 'Married with Children', but of course now these people are stealing my idea. I need my day in court."

    As a loyal fan I feel it is my duty to give the remake a shot, I hope Fox is in no way involved, they cancelled it w/o a finale for the fans and the cast members had to hear about it on the news/2nd hand.

    Just watch the Disney channel shows. They are the kings of putting that one future pornstar on each and every show.

    The PC pussies will ruin Married.

    Al Bundy was the star of that show and while Faustino was great in the Bud role he cannot carry a show by himself.

    I'm sorry but I can't think of any star who could carry that comedy like O'Neil did. The thing is that Al was a pig but you couldn't help but love him. A lesser actor would simply be unlikable.

    Christian Applegate still looks good. I wouldn't mind seeing her in one of the new roles.

    There was so much sexual innuendo in Sam & Cat that a few times i was uncomfortable watching with my kid, until i realized he had no clue.

    Jefferson was way better than Steve, as was the show in the later years.

    The only way they'll get away with doing anything like they did during the 90s, is to put it on FX or make it animated.
