The Brady Bunch is a story of a blended family comprising six kids, parents and a wacky housekeeper. It sounds like a simple plot, right? But, the show was complex enough, characterized by wholesome fun, relatable characters, and valuable lessons.

No one would have imagined such success when the show started half a century ago. Starting as a typical TV sitcom, it grew into a syndicated monster throughout the years, spawning numerous reunions, spin-offs, theatrical/tv movies, parodies and many more.

It’s not only the re-runs and cast reunions that keep the show alive but the stories and lessons remain relatable to date. HGTV bought the Bradys’ house for $3.5 million, $1.615 million more than the listed price. Today, we are here with the details of posting The Brady Bunch career of the Bradys.
