Beavis and Butt-Head Revival Gets Two-Season Order at Comedy Central

Beavis and Butt-Head revival gets two-season order at Comedy Central

Nearly 23 years since Beavis and Butt-Head had ended its seven-season on MTV in 1997, Comedy Central has announced that they’ve officially given a two-season order to Mike Judge’s upcoming revival of the iconic adult-animated series which will be part of Judge’s new expansive deal with the network. This announcement comes after Comedy Central had recently gave out a series order to the Daria spinoff series Jodie which will feature the voice of Tracee Ellis Ross. Both shows are expected to share the same animated universe as Daria was the first spinoff from Beavis and Butt-Head.

The reimagined Beavis and Butt-Head will be entering a whole new Gen Z world and is set to feature meta-themes that will be relatable to both new and old fans – Gen X parents and their Gen Z kids. Original series creator Mike Judge returns to recreate a cultural dialogue for a new generation, giving familiar fans and new audiences alike the chance to experience and laugh with America’s favorite animated duo.

“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,” President of Entertainment & Youth Group, Chris McCarthy said (via Deadline). “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.”

The series will be written and produced by Emmy-winner Mike Judge (Silicon Valley, King of the Hill) and will also again be lending his voice to the titular leads. His expansive deal will also cover additional spin-offs and specials. It will be a production by 3 Arts Entertainment.

The original Beavis and Butt-Head ran on-air for seven seasons from 1993-1997 on MTV. It quickly became a force in pop culture and started a television revolution with its pure, unadulterated, satirical commentary on youth and adolescence. Centered around two teenage couch potatoes, “Beavis” and “Butt-Head,” the unprecedented concept immediately became part of the vernacular in a way no other adult animated series had before. Known for tackling social issues including teen obesity, workers’ rights and media trends, the show connected with an entire generation, laying claim as one of the most innovative series in the modern-day zeitgeist.
