About the original Married… With Children
Airing from 1987 to 1997, Married… With Children was the first scripted series on the Fox network. It is considered to be one of the best TV shows in pop culture. Meanwhile, it was also one of the longest-running live-action comedy series to ever air on network TV.
When the sitcom ended its 11th season in 1997, the show was still attracting nine million viewers per episode. However, in season 9, Married… With Children attracted an average of 15 million viewers per episode. Reportedly, the only reason for the fall in viewership in the last two seasons was because Fox moved the show to different nights.
Rumors of Married… With Children spinoff
Meanwhile, there have been rumors of a Married… With Children spinoff for many years. However, this was always seen as difficult, especially with the schedules of the four original stars. It is believed that an animated version voiced by the actors is the best way to go.
