Topic: 'Beavis and Butt-Head' Coming Back with Two New Seasons, Spin-Offs, an

Comedy Central is bringing back one of the most critically acclaimed animated comedies in TV history.

“Beavis and Butt-Head” is coming back. Heh heh heh.

Comedy Central has announced a new deal with original series creator Mike Judge to reimagine MTV’s classic animated comedy. The network has ordered two seasons of the new series, which promises “meta-themes relatable to both new and old fans – Gen X parents and their Gen Z kids.” The deal also includes additional spin-offs and specials but specifics about those projects — as well as the release date for the upcoming two-season revival — are still under wraps

As with the original series, Judge will write and produce the series as well as voice the two dim-witted protagonists.

“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” Chris McCarthy, president of Entertainment & Youth Group, said in a statement. “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.”

“It seemed like the time was right to get stupid again,” Judge said in a statement.

The original “Beavis and Butt-Head” has endured as one of history’s most acclaimed animated comedies for its melding of hard-hitting social commentary with aggressively low-brow humor. The original show centered on Beavis and Butt-Head, two heavy metal-loving teenage idiots who blunder through life and spend a significant portion of their free time critiquing various music videos.

“Beavis and Butt-Head” premiered in 1993 and ran for seven seasons. An eighth season was released in 2011 and a theatrical film, “Beavis and Butt-Head Do America,” premiered in 1996. “Daria,” a similarly-acclaimed spin-off (that Judge was not involved in) that centered on the titular recurring character from “Beavis and Butt-Head,” premiered in 1997, running for five seasons and led to two TV films. Comedy Central recently picked up a “Daria” spin-off, titled “Jodie,” as part of the network’s recent push for more adult animation.

As for Judge, beyond his work on “Bevis and Butt-Head” he’s worked on a variety of critically acclaimed films and television shows over the years. He directed the classic comedy film “Office Space,” co-created HBO’s acclaimed series “Silicon Valley,” and co-created Fox’s beloved “King of the Hill” where he voiced Hank Hill. Judge has an overall deal at HBO and is developing “QualityLand” and “A5” for the network.

Daemons are benevolent or benign nature spirits, beings of the same nature as both mortals and gods, similar to ghosts, chthonic heroes, spirit guides, forces of nature or the gods themselves.
