The classic animated hit TV show ‘King of the Hill’ is being revived with all of the original elements that made it great.
Mike Judge and Greg Daniels, the original creators, have been keen to bring the show back since they reconnected with the cast at San Francisco Sketchfest in 2017. In January of 2022 the two formed the company ‘Bandera Entertainment’ with the aim of reviving their show, but no company was picking it up.
Now, almost fourteen years since the last episode aired, Hulu announced that they are bringing it back, with Judge (who is also the voice of Hank), Daniels, and all of the original cast getting amongst it. How good.
Marci Proietto, the executive vice president of 20th Television Animation (who produced the original series), said he can’t wait to get back to what started back in 1997 and catch up with the Hills and the rest of Arlen, Texas in modern times.
“I'm so lucky to have been a part of this show from the very beginning and couldn't be more excited to visit Arlen, Texas, once again with Mike, Greg and Saladin, who together are bringing a whole new perspective to the original series,” Proietto said in a statement, as reported by Entertainment Weekly.
“We all want to thank the fans for their overwhelming support because they helped make this happen, and I can't wait to share this new iteration through the lens of 2023 America. In the words of our beloved Peggy Hill: 'Ho yeah!’.”
No release date has been announced yet, but if it is taking place in “2023 America” as Proietto implied, it’ll hopefully be out soon. We’ll let you know when Hank and co. are back on TV screens, but until then, you’ll have to go somewhere else for your propane and propane accessories.
