Today, Comedy Central has announced they’ve made a deal with Mike Judge to bring back MTV’s Beavis & Butt-Head for a new generation, literally. They’re expected to make a re-imagined version that will focus on Generation-Z, rather than Generation-X along with Mike Judge returning to voice the titular characters.
Here is the official press release.
Comedy Central today announced an expansive deal with Emmy® Award-winning Mike Judge to reimagine MTV’s seminal, Gen X-defining “Beavis and Butt-Head,” as well as additional spin-offs and specials.
Launched in 1993, “Beavis and Butt-Head” quickly became a force in pop culture and started a television revolution with its pure, unadulterated, satirical commentary on youth and adolescence. Centered around two teenage couch potatoes, “Beavis” and “Butt-Head,” the unprecedented concept immediately became part of the vernacular in a way no other adult animated series had before. Known for tackling social issues including teen obesity, workers’ rights and media trends, the show connected with an entire generation, laying claim as one of the most innovative series in the modern-day zeitgeist.
In this new iteration, “Beavis” and “Butt-head” are entering a whole new Gen Z world.
Comedy Central has ordered two seasons of the new series with meta-themes relatable to both new and old fans – Gen X parents and their Gen Z kids.
Judge is set to write, produce and provide voice over for both iconic characters.
