Welcome back, Bundy’s! Katey Sagal may be promoting her new series, ‘The Bastard Executioner,’ but she’s ready and willing to put back on that red hair to play Peggy Bundy, which she said, will be about Peggy’s son, Bud!

David [Faustino] approached me about it & I said, ‘Anything. Absolutely,'” Katey Sagal told HollywoodLife.com at the Television Critics Association panel, about when the actor, who played her son on Married… with Children approached her. While Katey admitted that she prefers original ideas over the reboot-world that we’re now living it, she’d be happy to reunite with her on-screen family!

“I think all three of us — Ed O’Neill, Christina Applegate and myself all told David yes,” Katey told us at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. “It’s a continuation, I think, of Bud Bundy’s story.”

The actress also said that she definitely prefers the original show ideas — you know like the ones her husband, Kurt Sutter creates, however a reboot of sorts works “if you actually have a story to tell about those people.”

‘Married… With Children’ Never Ended

“The only reason a Married… With Children reboot might make sense to me is, you know, it never really ended, so it might be nice to see that,” Katey said. Well yes, we’re going ot say it would definitely be good to see that. As for where the Bundys are today, she’s not sure. “They’re in a trailer somewhere!”

We spoke briefly with Christina at the Vacation premiere in LA as well, where she told us that she’s been in communication with David and Ed as well, and that she would “be involved in the pilot for sure.”

Married… with Children ran on Fox from 1987 to 1997. Would you watch a continuation to see where Bud and the fam are today? Let us know!
