Married… With Children could be coming back with a new look. Deadline reported that the classic 90s comedy is being pitched as an animated revival with the original cast and is being met with interest.
The new version with original cast members including Katey Sagal, Ed O’Neill, Christina Applegate and David Faustino is being pitched to both networks and streaming sites.
Married… with Children aired on Fox
The original show followed the Chicago-based Bundy family made up of a misogynist father, a disaffected wife and two children. Talk of a reboot of the iconic show has made the rounds before, but it has not come to fruition most notably in 2014. Busy schedules have usually been cited as the issue in getting a reboot off the ground. The original currently streams on Hulu, Peacock and Paramount Global’s Pluto TV.
It isn’t unheard of to reboot a classic sitcom as an animated property. Norman Lear’s Good Times currently has an animated reboot in the works at Netflix
