I’ve been a huge, long-time fan of Beavis and Butt-head. I remember when it first debuted on MTV it was like being able to address an itch that I was not able to before. It was freaking hilarious.
But it also changed the game for shows in it’s genre.
During its initial run, Beavis and Butt-Head received widespread critical acclaim, particularly for its satirical, scathing commentary on society. It was a subject of controversy for its violent content. Fourteen years following the end of the series, the series was revived for an eighth season airing from October 27 to December 29, 2011. A theatrical feature-length film based on the series titled Beavis and Butt-Head Do America was released in 1996 by Paramount Pictures.
Well now, all Beavis and Butt-Head fans are treated to a reunion!
Comedy Central and original series creator Mike Judge will be teaming up to re-launch the franchise with two new seasons and new spinoffs and specials. Judge will write, produce, and voice the show, which will have the duo entering a “whole new Gen Z world” that the network says are relatable to fans of the original show and those who never got a chance to experience it. There’s no word on when the series will debut on the network, but they couldn’t be more thrilled about having it as part of the Comedy Central family.
And the internet is responding to this great news…
