Married… With Children Ended 25 Years Ago See the Cast Now

Thirtyfive years ago on April 5 1987 the thenfledgling Fox network expanded into primetime with the premiere of Married… With Children. And 25 years ago on June 9 1997 the sitcom ended after seven Emmy Award nominations 11 seasons 259 episodes and a whole lot of controversy. The show starred Ed ONeill as the cranky shoe salesman Al Bundy Katey Sagal as workshy housewife Peggy Bundy and Christina Applegate and David Faustino as their pickier kids Kelly and Bud. Amanda Bearse and David Garrison meanwhile played a neighboring couple… at least until Ted McGinley replaced Garrison as Bearses onscreen husband.

The show was never a ratings sensation but it certainly made a stir with its politically incorrect and oftoffensive humor. It was a meanspirited and misogynist show Bearse told News Corp Australia in 2018. It was just so completely inappropriate.
Now that Married… With Children has been off the airwaves for 25 years however — and now that an animated reboot is in the works — scroll down to catch up with those core cast members.

The former TV matriarch Married… with Children Sons of Anarchy brings her talents to ABC legal drama Rebel. ONeill was married with children again and just as cantankerous as Jay Pritchett on Modern Family picking up four Screen Actors Guild Awards alongside the rest of the ABC comedys ensemble. And last month the actor was cast in the upcoming FX limited series The Sterling Affairs where he is set to play disgraced former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling.

Sagal starred as Cate Hennessy on the ABC sitcom 8 Simple Rules between 2002 and 2005 and picked up her first Golden Globe Award in 2011 for her role as Gemma Teller Morrow on the FX crime drama Sons of Anarchy. More recently she starred as Annie Rebel Bello in the ABCs legal dramedy Rebel and coming up shell reprise her role as the voice of Leela in Hulus Futurama reboot.

Applegate is a star and executive producer for Dead to Me playing widow Jen Harding on the Netflix dramedy and earning nominations at the Emmys Golden Globes and SAG Awards for her performance. Last year she announced she had recently been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Faustino had a brief role on The Young and the Restless in 2017 but he has spent recent years doing voice acting for shows like The Legend of Korra Winx Club and Dragons Race to the Edge. Last month he attended a Race To Erase MS gala in Los Angeles and told HollywoodLife that Applegate has been pushing through her challenging first year postdiagnosis.
