The Married…With Children reboot/spin-off/continuation focusing on Bud Bundy seems to be gaining a bit of steam in Sony’s hands and Katey Sagal seemed to have some thoughts on the subject at the TCA panel for The Bastard Executioner. According to Slash Film, she spoke with the press after the event and relayed the status of the reboot and her possible involvement:
“David approached me about and I said, ‘Anything, absolutely,’” Sagal said. “I think all three of us, Ed, Christina and myself all told David yes. It’s not really a reboot. It’s a continuation I think of Bud Bundy’s story…
“I suppose there’s a certain value in rebooting some of that but I’m not quite sure what it is. If you actually have a story to tell about those people… The only reason a Married with Children reboot might make sense to me is it never really ended. So it might be nice to see it end. So I don’t know.”
That would confirm the earlier report on the entire cast being involved, but Sagal does seem a little on the fence about the entire project. Just a tad. She’s completely right about the show never receiving a proper ending, though. It’d be easy for them to fix with just a few minor, very silly references, but it’s still a lingering thread. Think Family Guy, but with real people and better jokes.
Let’s just hope Grandmaster B makes an appearance. And the rubber woman.
