They live in a suburb of Chicago, Illinois. As well more than 20 years ago, the last episode of the show was aired. Although it was long time ago.

So the actor Ed O’Neill had the main tv as Al Bundy. He is the head of the Bundy family. Aslo after the end of the sitcom, he had a solid breakthrough until 2009 when he got a new starring role in the very successful sitcom called “Modern Family”. And again he plays the head of the family. He has been nominated now several times for the role of Jay Pritchett for an Emmy award. Besides that Ed O’Neill was also in animated films, for example “Finding Dory”.


Actor Katey Sagal had a tv role as Al Bundy’s wife Peggy. She as well is thinking of the role of the crude proletarian in some way. Later after the end of the show she took new tv role of in the sitcom “8 Simple Rules”. As well it is very interesting that she has in one episode met her former colleague Ed O’Neill, who has had a guest role in the tv series. But the series was unfortunately not long lasting. From 2008 to 2014 she was in the new series “Sons of Anarchy” where she won a Golden Globe for her role as Gemma Teller Morrow.

These 5 things about Al Bundy and “Married with Children” you did not know part 2

We are confident that these facts you certainly did not know about “Married with Children”, so let’s move on.

1. During the filming of the series, members of their families often appeared as guests in the show. So we could see a couple of times Ed O’Neill’s wife, but also brother Katey Sagal brother which appeared also several times.

2. Otherwise, most people still believe that the Bundy family name was taken from Ted Bundy, but that’s not true. It was take from the professional wrestler King Kong Bundy. Which has also appeared twice in the series.

3. Although we probably will not find out the truth about the cancellation of the show, Ed O’Neill says that the series has been cancelled because of the too high price for television rights. He also states that other television company had to pay for one episode nearly a million dollars.

4. And as a last fact, it is also about the cancellation of the series. So when the “Married with Children” unfortunately was cancelled on May 7, 1997. The television house has published a sad news about the cancellation of the series. But for an unknown reason they did not tell the actors this sad new. So at that moment, Ed O’Neill was on vacation, and he heard the news from his neighbors.

Is “Married with Children” coming back? David Faustino says maybe

David Faustino is most popular for Bud Bundy role, and now he is talking about a possible Married with Children reboot. But do not go straight ahead because there are still legal problems about this idea which needs to be done.

So everyone knows that in the late 80s and 90s, “Married with Children” tv series was the most popular tv show. Also when you see how many successful sitcom reboots are now here, the chance for a return of the Married with Children is probably not bad either also.


David says: “Nothing is confirmed now, so I do not know,” in a conversation with “TMZ”. But immediately after the great actor gives the hope to the fans of the tv series. We are sure that everybody wants to see Married with Children reboot, but there is still the process of solving some legal problems.

If you ask yourself would everyone be in reboot? Then with certainty we can not confirm it, at this moment it is unclear who would be in the Married with Children reboot.

But we belive that fans would only accept the original cast from the sitcom normally. So we all want to see again Al Bundy, Peggy Bundy, Kelly Bundy, and others.

It would also not be bad to see again Steve and Marcy.

But still some actors are not too happy about this idea, for example Christina Applegate in 2017 said “I’m a mother, I’m no longer that type of actor.” Same opinion has Ed O’Neill aka Al Bundy, where he said once: “I think we’re done with it”.

Without a mutual agreement within Bundy’s, we believe that nothing will be happen.
