My high school self just let out a little *Squee* of excitement.
The raunchy teenage duo, Beavis and Butt-head, are headed to Comedy Central for a reboot, and I’m not mad. (You can admit it; you watched it too!)
Will I let my kids watch it? Heck, naw. Will I secretly watch it after they go to sleep? You best believe it!
Mike Judge, who created the original show — as well as VOICED both Beavis and Butt-head — is going to reimagine the slacker teenage team for a reboot show on Comedy Central.
Comedy Central has ALREADY signed on for TWO seasons, with the option to do spin-off shows based on the characters.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a proper Beavis and Butt-head show if Mike Judge didn’t have his hands all up in the production! He is going to write and produce the show, as well as bring back his voice talents for the main characters.
It seemed like the time was right to get stupid again.Mike Judge
The pop cultural phenomenon that was Beavis and Butt-head first broke onto the MTV airwaves in 1993. Though the show was wildly popular, it was also extremely controversial, with much negative backlash.
OMG. I remember the people hating it! My parents thought I was definitely going to hades for watching such “filth.”
You might know Mike Judge from his OTHER hit show, King of the Hill, which ran for a whopping 13 seasons.
He has also had his hands in the making of HBO’s Silicon Valley, and movies like Office Space. Basically, the guy is a genius.
No word yet on WHEN we might get to see the Beavis and Butt-head reboot but don’t worry, we will keep you updated.
Speaking of retro shows that are getting a reboot, have you heard that a reboot for Unsolved Mysteries is coming to Netflix?
