A ‘Married With Children’ Reunion Could Bring Back the Bundys

Married with Children reunion

Posted by on

Since going off the air in 1997 with 11 seasons under their belt, the stars of Married…with Children went their separate ways. Ed O’Neill (Al) stars in the Emmy-winning sitcom Modern Family, Katey Sagal (Peg) became the coolest biker mom on Sons of Anarchy, David Faustino (Bud) voiced Mako on the acclaimed Nickelodeon cartoon The Legend of Korra, and Christina Applegate (Kelly) went on to star in the Anchorman films, the sitcom Up All Night and the recent Vacation reboot. But it looks like the Bundys are getting back together for a reunion, and perhaps a TV spinoff for Bud Bundy.

E! News caught up with Faustino, who came out for the premiere of Vacation to support his former co-star. According to the actor, Sony is setting a new series into motion based on Married with Children, a la Fuller House. “Sony has it. They’re excited about it,” he said. “They’re working out some legal issues that we hope they work out.” He also said that “the whole cast, including Christina, is down to do little bits in it. The idea would be a pilot for a spinoff. That’s all I can say right now. It involves me and a few other people.”

A Married…with Children spinoff continuing the dysfunction of shoe salesman and father Al and his family seems like a natural progression in the current TV reboot climate. The cast of Full House, another popular series from the ’80s and ’90s, are reuniting for Fuller House, a new Netflix series focusing on DJ (Candace Bure) and her bff Kimmy (Andrea Barber). Then there’s the return of Agents Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) for a new X-Files series, and David Lynch’s Twin Peaks is also making its way back to television. Short of rebooting the entire series, a Married spinoff fits right in with this trend of tickling our nostalgia epicenters.

We’ll have to wait and hear more from Sony, however, as an official deal hasn’t yet been made. Something can always go wrong. Look at Twin Peaks — even after it was formally announced, it got pushed back a year. So, while we would all love to see Sagal’s hair bob back onto TV, we shouldn’t count our eggs before they hatch.


Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
