As Comedy Central announced in June 2020, Beavis and Butt-Head, world's famous slacker teens taking the world by storm in 1993 are getting a reboot. Comedy Central ordered two seasons from series' creator Mike Judge in collaboration with 3 Arts Entertainment. This includes the possibility of spin offs and specials.
Judge will, as in the original series from 1993, the movie Beavis and Butt-Head do America and season 8 from 2011. The original series went on air 1993 on Viacom's cable network MTV. The series features two teen friends commenting on youth and adolescence while watching contemporary music videos on MTV, and proved to be a cultural phenomenon which spurred strong positive and negative critics, but was an instant hit with MTV viewers, catapulting Mike Judge into stardom.
The reboot marks the return to cartoons for Judge, who previously created the live action series Silicon Valley. He is also well known for his long running animated series King Of The Hill (1997-2010) and the live action series Office Space and the movie Idiocrazy. The reboot is the second time Beavis and Butt-Head return to television. The reboot airs in summer 2021.
