Rumors of a King of the Hill Reboot have ebbed and flowed for the last several months. And once again, one of the creators is teasing us with tantalizing hints about the possible return of the beloved sitcom.
At San Diego Comic Con today, King of the Hill creator Mike Judge answered a fan question in his Beavis & Butt-Head panel about the potential revival, saying the show “has a very good chance of coming back.”
Reports of a revival first kicked off back in January when Judge and fellow creator Greg Daniels reunited to former their own animation company called Bandera Entertainment. At the time, the two suggested that something King of the Hill related was in the works (alongside the Beavis & Butt-Head revival that was the subject of the panel), but gave no further details.
However, following that story, Daniels clarified that they didn’t actually have a deal yet, even though they were talking about a revival set 15 years after the finale internally. Which makes Judge’s remarks today a comforting reassurance for anyone who was worried things might fall through.
On the same panel, Judge also mentioned the possibility of other spin-offs of his works, calling the ideas a “whole Beavis and Butt-Head metaverse” made possible due to Paramount.
We also saw new clips of Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe in which the duo react to BTS and TikTok videos. The clips come ahead of the premiere on Paramount+ coming Thursday, August 4.
There’s tons of news for all your favorite shows, films, games, and more coming out of San Diego Comic-Con 2022, and we’ve got the full schedule to guide you through the weekend of panels, announcements, trailers, and surprises.
