Imeh Akpanudosen/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Will Married…with Children follow in the footsteps of Full House and Boy Meets World and return to the small screen?
It’s possible. The production studio behind the 1987-1997 Fox sitcom, Sony Pictures Television, is considering a spin-off based on Bud Bundy, the son in the Bundy family, according to E! News. Bud Bundy was played by David Faustino in the original series.
So far, the idea is only being pitched within the TV industry, and is not a done deal.
It’s unclear whether Faustino’s co-stars would be involved, but Katey Sagal, who portrayed matriarch Peggy Bundy in the sitcom centered on a dysfunctional family living in a Chicago suburb, revealed this week that the cast talks about a reunion frequently.
“We’ve talked about it every year, but then there are so many pieces that have to be in alignment that for some reason it never happens,” she told E! News. “But we love each other. Well, we’re all working now, so it’s hard to find the time.”
Sagal is currently starring in FX’s Sons of Anarchy. Ed O’Neill, who portrayed her husband, Al Bundy, stars in ABC’s Modern Family. Christina Applegate, who played dumb daughter Kelly, recently starred in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, while Faustino voiced a character on Nickelodeon’s recently canceled series, The Legend of Korra.
Although Sagal is on board with a possible reunion, Applegate still needs convincing to portray Kelly again. “We all kind of have other things going on. No one wants to see me in a miniskirt anymore,” she told E! “I’m 42 years old. I never wanted to see me in them back when I was 18. I don’t know if I could go that route.”
But there may be hope in a special project, Applegate teased. “We’re going to do something with Dave maybe. I don’t know if it will be in character,” she explained. “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!”
The cast of Married…with Children reunited this week to see Sagal receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
