The original creators are planning to revive King of the Hill

More than two decades after Hank and the gang made their debut on Fox, the original creators are back for another go.


After King of the Hill bowed out of TV channels back in 2010, the series' original creators are set to bring the legendary animated show back. Both Greg Daniels and Mike Judge have reunited under Bandera Entertainment and they've got their eyes set on more than a dozen animated series, including King of the Hill.

King of the Hill ended beautifully in 2010. Here is to hoping that the revival doesn't hurt its legacy.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a new King of the Hill is in the works. Unfortunately, Daniels and Judge did not share anything outside of confirming the series' return. In addition to King of the Hill, the duo are also working on Netflix's Bad Crime, which will star Lauren Lapkus and Nicole Byer.

King of the Hill was one of the few animated sitcoms on FOX to give The Simpsons a run for their money. King of the Hill aired for several hundred episodes between 1997 and 2009, treating audiences to the mundane but related day-to-day struggles of Hank Hill and his family. Fans have asked for King of the Hill to return for years, but this isn't the first time that this has been brought up. Back in March, Brent Forrester alluded to the show's revival. The writer claimed that Hank Hill will return albeit 15 years older following the series finale.

Speaking of an iconic animated series making a return, another one of Judge's first creations, Beavis and Butt-Head, is going to get a revival film as well.

Judge and Daniels each hold an extensive resume outside of Beavis and Butt-Head as well as King of the Hill. For example, Judge is the creator of HBO's Silicon Valley, which Judge says that he based on his time in Silicon Valley. Meanwhile, Daniels was part of The Simpsons team for years. Daniels is currently working on Netflix's hit comedy series, Space Force, which stars Steve Carell, as well as Amazon's Upload.

With so much going on for both Judge and Daniels right now, we're interested to find out how they'll make King of the Hill's revival work. But, more importantly, we're just happy to know that Hank and the gang are back.
