Beavis and Butt-Head will be revived, with new episodes of the 90s animated MTV favourite to be written, produced and voiced by original series creator Mike Judge.
Comedy Central says they’ve ordered two seasons’ worth of a new Beavis and Butt-Head series from Judge, reports the New York Times.
The original Beavis and Butt-Head series, oriented around the two heavy metal-loving best friends, ran on MTV between 1993 and 1997. A feature film about the mischievous pair, Beavis and Butt-Head Do America, was released in 1996. After its seventh season wrapped up, Judge went on to co-create another beloved animated series, King of the Hill, which ran until 2010.
In 2011, fourteen years after the end of the original series, the series was revived for an eighth season on MTV, but was not picked up for further episodes.
In a press statement, Comedy Central said the revived series would see the characters “entering a whole new Gen Z world”, dealing with “meta-themes relatable to both new and old fans – Gen X parents and their Gen Z kids”.
“It seemed like the time was right to get stupid again,” commented Judge.
A release date for the first of the new seasons is yet to be announced by Comedy Central.
