It’s quite typical these days for popular sitcoms from the past to be resurrected. The Conners is still on ABC, while the revival of Saved by the Bell enjoyed two faultless seasons before being cruelly canceled by Peacock.
iCarly, Mad About You, And Just Like That…, and other recent reboots include Another great series that is returning, but this time in a wholly new format.
According to Deadline, an animated series based on Married… With Children is in the works, with the original actors scheduled to return.
Married… With Children ran on Fox from 1987 to 1997 and followed the Bundys and their life in a Chicago suburb. Deadline reports that the animated show will star original cast members Katey Sagal, Ed O’Neill, Christina Applegate, and David Faustino. The show is currently being pitched to networks and streamers and sources tell the outlet that it “is getting strong interest.” This new spin on Married… With Children was written by Family Guy executive producer, Alex Carter, who will serve as the showrunner. Sony Pictures Television, which owns and distributes the original sitcom, has been working on the new project for over a year and closed deals with the four original stars before pitching it out.
