"Beavis and Butt-Head": Iconic slacker series gets a reboot
Back to the Nineties: The MTV series "Beavis and Butt-Head" gets a reboot from Comedy Central. The disrespectful cartoon series returns with two new seasons – and spin-offs and specials are also planned.
Series creator Mike Judge ("King of the Hill", "Silicon Valley") has negotiated an extensive deal with Comedy Central, according to Business Wire . He will write and produce the new episodes and also speak to Beavis and Butt-Head.
Series with cult status is back
The original series around two simple-minded heavy metal fans ran on MTV in seven seasons from 1993 to 1997. In addition, the duo was seen in 1996 in the movie "Beavis and Butt-Head do it in America". In 2011 MTV released an eighth season.
Beavis and Butt-Head are two powerless couch potatoes who prefer to watch music videos or do nonsense when they are not working at "Burger World". The animated series satirically dealt with the youth culture and media trends of the 1990s and was not afraid to deal with critical issues such as obesity among teenagers. The series and its characters have achieved cult status with fans over the years. She has also produced comics and video games.
Reboot for old and new fans
The new episodes are intended to deal with meta-topics that are interesting for both long-established and new fans. So for "Generation-X parents and their Generation-Z children", as it says in the press release. "'Beavis and Butt-Head' was the voice of an entire generation," said Comedy Central's Chris McCarthy. "We can't wait to see them navigate the treacherous waters of a world that is light years away from their own."
It is not yet known when the new "Beavis and Butt-Head" episodes will appear.
