Beavis & Butt-Head will return to the screens with a version that re-imagines the animated cult series launched in 1993 by MTV. The two new seasons have been ordered by Comedy Central. Mike Judge, the creator of the original Beavis & Butt-Head, will write and produce the new series. It will also maintain the role of voice actor of the two protagonists who give it its name. According to the first advances, the two teenagers will adapt to the world of the new Generation Z. The show will therefore continue to address social issues, trends and more.
The president of the ViacomCBS entertainment division Chris McCarthy released some comments in a statement. “We are excited to be working with Mike Judge and the amazing 3 Arts team again as we enrich the offering of animated series for an adult audience at Comedy Central.” Then add: “Beavis and Butt-Head have been the distinctive voice of a generation and we look forward to seeing them navigate the insidious waters of a world a few light years from theirs”. Judge then commented: “It seems the right time to go back to being stupid.”
The show first aired in 1993
Beavis & Butt-head is an American animated sitcom created by Mike Judge and broadcast for the first time in the United States of America by MTV from April 8, 1993 to November 28, 1997.

In 1996, a film was also made, entitled Beavis & Butt-Head to Conquer America. To create the two protagonists, the author would have been inspired by two of his youth friends known in Texas, with similar characteristics. In 1996, the film relating to the series, Beavis & Butt-Head to conquer America, was released in theaters, which tells of the two protagonists around America in search of their stolen TV.
