Married with Children debuted in 1987, and was Fox's first big sitcom, which generated plenty of controversy. It wasn't a hit right away, but the series gained a huge following throughout its 11-season run, with many calling it the "Anti-Cosby Show." The series ended rather abruptly when it went off the air in 1997, and fans have been clamoring for its return since then.

Last year, it was confirmed that Sony Pictures Television is developing a revival of the iconic sitcom Married With Children, which will center on David Faustino returning as Bud Bundy, who is grown up with a family of his own. That report revealed the entire cast, including Ed O'Neil, Katey Sagal and Christina Applegate will return as the Bundy clan, but we haven't had any updates on this long-awaited series for some time. Today we have word from David Faustino himself, who reveals that this project is still hung up on one legal issue with Married with Children Reboot.

 In honor of the show's potential return to TV, here's 10 things you maybe didn't know about it. 

1. The show was the first prime-time TV series to air on Fox.

Eleven seasons of the show aired between April 5, 1987 to June 9, 1997. Its 262-episode run also makes it the longest-lasting live-action sitcom on Fox.

2. Sam Kinison and Roseanne Barr were considered for the role of Al and Peggy Bundy. 

Kinison later appeared in the It's a Wonderful Life-inspired episode "It's a Bundyful Life: Part 2." Kinison played Al's guardian angel.

4. It was Katey Sagal's idea to dress Peggy Bundy in 1960s-inspired outfits. 

Her look was a parody of the 1960s housewife. During her audition, she wore a large red wig, which made it to the show after she got the role.

5. Ed O'Neill called fans as Al Bundy on their birthdays and on holidays. 

He would call them collect in true Al Bundy fashion, of course. 

6. The Bundy and Rhodes families were named after professional wrestlers. 

They were King Kong Bundy (who guest starred on two episodes) and Dusty Rhodes. Contrary to popular belief, the Bundys were not named after serial killer Ted Bundy.

  • After such a popular sitcom as Married With Children, I think they’ll never be anything like it.
    It happens only once in life. Hope they’re all well. Still watch the reruns.
