A source has confirmed to TVLine that a pitch for a Married spin-off, focusing on David Faustino’s Bud, has been developed. Of course, a lot has to happen before a pitch can become a pilot, so don’t get too excited just yet.

Interestingly enough, this wouldn’t be Married‘s first spin-off. The Fox sitcom — which ran for 11 seasons from 1987 to 1997 — previously spawned Top of the Heap, a short-lived comedy starring Matt LeBlanc, which ran for several episodes in 1991.

E! Online first reported the possibilities of a Bud-centric spin-off.

The stars of Married… With Children — including Ed O’Neill and Christina Applegate — recently reunited in Los Angeles on Sept. 9 when Katey Sagal received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame:

    Let it go! Everyone say no to Bud!!!!!

  3. GuessWhat says:

    Your daily proof that there is NO originality left in Hollywood.

  4. Steven says:

    If it were about Kelly I may be interested. Bud, not so much.

  5. Delante says:

    Spin-off? Why not just remake the entire thing? After all, that’s all Hollywood is known for these days!

  6. Drew says:

    Maybe they could combine this with all of the other spinoffs of old sitcoms that have been discussed lately. Bud is married to DJ Tanner, and they live next door to Mr. Feeny.

  8. Tom says:

    It could not suck. Would be interesting to see how the handled things

  9. Big Mike says:

    I need me some Grand Master B!!

  10. Joey says:

    Whatever happened to Bud Bundy? He cheated on Avatar Korra, of course.

  11. leigh says:

    I’d watch it. It could be good. It could also be bad. But Whoa Bundy! The guest spots would be great.

  12. Babygate says:

    So they are giving a spin off to the least significant and appealing of all the characters. wow.

  13. Bradster says:

    If he and Christina Applegate did it together, it could be epic. Him alone, not so much.

  14. Bark Star says:

    Will the show star Will Wheaton as Bud Bundys buddy ?

  15. John Savkin says:

    No – but I would definitely watch one with Christina Applegate :)

  16. dman6015 says:

    Finally, Faustino gets to do something!

  17. KCC says:

    Awww… they all came out to support Katey. It’s nice to see them together again.

  19. Jax&Juice's Girl says:

    OK, first of all NOBODY can replace either Ed O’neil or Katey Sagal!!!! Second this show is only about Bud…… really? My dad probably won’t watch and this is ONE of his favorite shows!

  20. Randy Redmon says:

    I would watch a Married with children spinoff. I would hope to see Ed O’neil, even if in a limited role. Al Bundy is “The Man”! And of course Christina Applegate is still smokin hot. Even without my favorite characters I would give it a try. One of my favorite shows to this day.

  21. Tobi Raphael says:

    That we would be cool I would ‘ve married with children. Keep the humor original.

  22. Lucky says:

    When is it coming back out.. Let’s do this
