It is always a strange feeling to see your favorite animated characters get older.
Beavis and Butt-Head are returning with a feature film reboot that will land on Paramount+ this year. Mike Judge, the creator of the classic 1990s animated MTV series, teased that Beavis and Butt-Head grew up with you in their 25-year hiatus.
Judge tweeted on Tuesday night the plans for the return, stating that there is no exact release date for the film since Beavis and Butt-Head “need some time to get back in shape.”
The film will be the second Beavis and Butt-Head film since their first film, Beavis and Butt-Head Do America, which was released back in 1996. The plans for the second feature film were unveiled during a ViacomCBS showcase for Paramount+ in February 2021.
The untitled feature film will serve as the kick-off for the show’s second revival series on Comedy Central. The plans for this reboot started back in July 2020, giving Judge and his team time to plan and develop two full seasons, promising a satisfying return to our televisions.
A lot has changed in our culture since Beavis and But-Head ended its five-year run on MTV in 1997. The show was considered MTV’s most popular series during its earlier, pre-reality TV days for its satirical and scathing commentary on society and highly criticized use of animated violence.
It will be interesting to see where the middle-aged Beavis and Butt-Head have landed in 2022, and what creative perspective it will offer Generation X and the new youth culture.
