“It seemed like the time was right to get stupid again,” said Beavis and Butt-head creator Mike Judge.
Beavis and Butt-head are returning for two more seasons with Judge writing, producing, and voicing, per Variety. Comedy Central is hosting the 90’s adult animated series, and calling it a “reimagining” of what came before – although it’s totally unclear what exactly that means.
Beavis and Butt-head originally aired seven seasons on MTV from 1993-1997, with an eighth season debuting in the Fall of 2011, as well as a feature film in 1996. The two brothers’ claim to fame is marked with vulgarity, and satire only a pair of teenage ne’er-do-wells can offer. Judge later went on to co-create King of the Hill, The Goode Family, Silicon Valley, Idiocracy, and more.
With this latest deal, he also has the potential for spin-offs and specials.
“We are thrilled to be working with Mike Judge and the great team at 3 Arts again as we double down on Adult Animation at Comedy Central” says Chris McCarthy, president of Entertainment & Youth Group at ViacomCBS Domestic Media Networks. “Beavis and Butt-Head were a defining voice of a generation, and we can’t wait to watch as they navigate the treacherous waters of a world light-years from their own.”
