Honestly, there is nothing much better then catching re-runs of “Married With Children” on the boob-tube, The 90’s breakthrough FOX sitcom with Al (Ed O’Neill), Peg (Katey Sagal), Kelly (Christina Applegate), and Bud (David Faustino) Bundy busted guts with laughter for 11 straight seasons. With the first-of-its-kind original raunchy one-liner TV comedy that put even All in the Family to shame, it was a fan favorite from the start. So how badass would it be if by some Godmother’s miracle from Sam Kinison that a Married With Children comeback were to happen?!
As reported by E! Online, Kelly (Christina Applegate), and Bud (David Faustino) were in attendance at the new “Vacation” movie premiere on Monday (July 27) night. The two old cast mates as children opened up about the very real possibility that finally a reboot or spin-off show will be taken seriously enough this time by David Faustino’s new pitch, which he put it, is only held up by some pesky “legal” issues.
“Sony has it. They’re excited about it. They’re working out some legal issues that we hope they work out. The whole cast, including Christina, is down to do little bits in it, and we hope it comes together.” – said Faustino
The idea would be a pilot for a spin-off,” he added. “It involves me and few other people, but like I said, there are legal issues to work out. When you have a billion dollar show, there’s a few people that have their hands out. So, we’ll see what happens.”
According to Applegate, Faustino’s has her full support for David’s new pitch.
“All of us have said we would [make an appearance],” she said. “We would all be there for him.”
Nothing goes together like a horse and carriage and this carriage needs all the horses to came back home at least for a cameo. If a new show is somehow pulled off, it would the greatest thing ever in my humble opinion. A Married With Children reboot has been talked about for at 5 years now so this is not ‘new’ news to many Faustino fans. I actually got to talk to David earlier this year at Wizard World Madison and I asked David if he felt bitter about any stigma the ‘Bud Bundy’ character was to him after the show was over. His response to me was quite simple.
“I used to at first….but I got over it and I actually began to embrace it. Bud Bundy is such a great lovable wonderful character. What’s not to love about Bud Bundy” (lol)
I, of course, have to agree. Married With Children cast is one of the best in television history. With the accomplishments each actor has been able to achieve since the end of the beloved sitcom have even astounded my expectations.
Applegate has become a full-fledged Hollywood movie star. Ed O’ Neill has done nothing but cement his legend in the entertainment world. Katey Sagal has made award winning leaps in her role on Sons of Anarchy television series. David Faustino also has done plenty of recent voice acting on Legends of Korra The Last Air Bender, How To Train Your Dragon TV series and a radio hosting gig with DJ Skee from Skee TV.
Nothing has been hinted as to what a new series would be about but if Applegate had her way, she thinks she knows exactly what her character might be up to.
“Kelly Bundy probably has like 10 kids, I’m sure of it,” she said.
