Considering we live in the age of the Reboot and the Sequel, you shouldn’t be surprised when classic TV shows and movies get brought back to life. But even this latest news is a little shocking.
Mike Judge, the famed TV show creator, says he’s interested in bringing back either King of the Hill or Beavis and Butthead. Judge said if he were to bring back King of the Hill, he would age the characters.
“It would have to be a passage of time,” Judge said. “People have grown up. I think The Simpsons are so iconic just the way they’re drawn, you can keep Bart that same age for 60 years. Our characters, it was starting to strain a little bit to have Bobby still be that age for that long.”
Judge said he’s also had discussions about reviving Beavis and Butthead again after their most recent comeback in 2011, and said he’s even considering a movie.
“It came up two months ago,” Judge said. “It’s just a matter of coming up with an idea that feels like it’s worth doing. They’ve talked about a movie possibly.”
Until then, you’ll still get plenty of Judge’s patented humor in the upcoming fifth season of Silicon Valley.
