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.
