David Faustino has gotten “Married… With Children” fans hopes up once again, teasing a spinoff of the sitcom, but is the project really in development?

Faustino, who starred as Bud in the series, teased a “spinoff” at the premiere of “Vacation” this week. “Sony has it. They’re excited about it,” Faustino told E! “They’re working out some legal issues that we hope they work out.”

A source within Sony, however, denied that any such reunion is in development.

Faustino went on to say that the original cast, including Christina Applegate, was game to return. “The whole cast, including Christina, is down to do little bits in it,” he said. “The idea would be a pilot for a spinoff. That’s all I can say right now. It involves me and few other people.”

After “Married… With Children” ended in 1997, the cast stayed busy. Applegate stars in the “Vacation” reboot, Ed O’Neill stars in “Modern Family” and Katey Sagal will appear in FX’s “The Bastard Executioner,” after starring as Gemma in the network’s “Sons of Anarchy.”

“Married… With Children” aired for 11 seasons on Fox and followed a dysfunctional family in a Chicago suburbs. It was created by Michael G. Moye and Ron Leavitt.

    Why not?! They seem to be re-doing everything else in TV & film. What’s next? A reboot of The Mary Tyler Moore show with another actress playing Mary?

  2. Mike Flores says:

    It wasn’t until SONS OF ANARCHY that I was aware of the range Katey Sagal has. That made me watch MARRIED WITH CHILDREN to study her choices. I am convinced when it comes to acting she can do it all. I would watch a reunion.

  3. Ron Britvec says:

    I don’t think they should do it. I’ve watched nearly all MWC episodes and I’m a fan but “Been there. Done that.” applies to all concerned.

  4. Mike M says:

    Al… very busy, Peg… very busy, Kelly… reasonably busy. I’m not sure exactly what kind of spin off Faustino believes he can cash in on. I’m sure not tuning in for the “Bud and Buck Show”. Stick to the voice acting son.

  5. Eli says:

    Growing up in Buckinghamshire England, this was not the sure one watched. I secretly loved it….this would be very nice indeed
