It looks like some classic icons from our childhood are making a comeback, as Paramount+ is working on a revival of Beavis and Butt-Head. The adult animation was originally part of a short film before becoming a mainstay on MTV with seven seasons. It ran from 1993 until 1997 but even got a revival in 2011 that sadly never got a second season. while it is supposedly getting another renewal over on Comedy Central, our wait for the icons might not be too long after all.
Creator Mike Judge has shared that they are working on a new film that’ll premiere on the streaming service Paramount+ sometime this year. It’ll be the second film based on the characters after 1996’s Beavis and Butt-Head Do America. There is still no title or details on the project outside of our first look at the returning characters, who are seemingly in their middle ages now.
Many streaming services have been banking quite a bit on nostalgia-filled content. Paramount+ is no stranger to it, as they recently released two of a series of new films that explore the future versions of popular South Park characters. The films Post Covid and Post Covid: The Return of Covid also continued the franchise’s classic humor but explored the characters’ future selves. Of course, Beavis and Butt-Head hasn’t aired in some time. So, the approach might be quite a bit different and it’ll be exciting to see how they reinvent the classic characters.
