Comedy Central Orders “Beavis and Butt-Head” Reboot For Two Seasons

Mike Judge in "Beavis and Butt-Head"

TV’s couch potatoes are coming back for a reimagined Beavis and Butt-Head series with original series creator Mike Judge.

Comedy Central has ordered two seasons of the reboot which also includes potential spin-offs and specials.

Judge, who wrote, produced, and voiced Beavis and Butt-Head will be doing the same for the new series. The original series premiered in 1993 on MTV and this will be the second time Beavis and Butt-Head was brought back to television—after it ended in 1997 after seven seasons, MTV gave it an eighth season in 2011.

In 1996, Paramount Pictures released the film Beavis & Butt-Head Do America and the spinoff Daria, which featured the series’ character Daria Morgendorffer, aired on MTV for five seasons.

According to Comedy Central, the series will have the duo “entering a whole new Gen Z world,”and it will focus on “meta themes relatable to both new and old fans — Gen X parents and their Gen Z kids.”

This show will be Judge’s return to animation as his most recent work was co-creating the live-action HBO comedy series Silicon Valley. His other works include Fox’s King of the Hill and the films Office Space and Idiocracy. Currently, he’s under an overall deal at HBO and is developing the shows A5 and Qualityland.

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

Earlier this month, a Daria spinoff, titled Jodie with Tracee Ellis Ross starring, was set at Comedy Central.
