In what is potentially the most welcome bit of revival news we’ll ever receive, Hulu has officially ordered a King of the Hill reboot with co-creators Mike Judge (Beavis & Butt-Head, Silicon Valley) and Greg Daniel (The Office US) set to revisit Arlen, Texas along with all the original cast members.

In addition to crafting the laughs in the writer’s room and serving as producer, Judge will obviously reprise his iconic role as Hank Hill; with Kathy Najimy as his wife Peggy, Stephen Root as Bill, Pamela Adlon as Bobby Hill, Johnny Hardwick as Dale, and Lauren Tom as Minh. But that doesn’t mean there won’t be any newcomers…

Saladin Patterson (The Wonder YearsThe Last OG) has signed on as both executive producer and showrunner to the forthcoming King of the Hill reboot.

“Yeah, man I tell you whot man, that dang Ol’ Greg, talking about OG. and then that Mike Judge… Inspirations, man … the original show, dang ol’ classic… Got my kids, man, walking around talking about: ‘That’s my purse! I don’t know you!’” Saladin Patterson expressed in a hilariously appropriate statement.

“Feeling blessed, man, I tell you whot, ‘Feel so Good’ is a great song, I don’t care what no-dang-body says.”

“We are all so excited to welcome back Hank, Peggy, and Bobby, and to see what they have to say about the world we live in and continue the conversations we began years ago,” said Craig Erwich – President of ABC Entertainment, Hulu, & Disney Branded Television Streaming Originals – in a more conventional press statement.

“This show has all of the perfect ingredients to meet this moment in animation at Hulu, and we’re so thankful to be having those conversations alongside this talented group.”

According to Deadline, the reboot has been in active development since the 2017 San Francisco Sketchfest, wherein Mike Judge and Greg Daniels famously reunited with the cast to celebrate King of the Hill’s 20th anniversary. This mark’s the second major revival of a Fox animated property after the recent Futurama reboot.

During its initial run, the Primetime Emmy-winning animate series aired for 13 seasons (259 episodes) on Fox from 1997 to 2010 and effectively raised the bar for animated comedy across the board.

Stay tuned for further updates on the King of the Hill reboot (release date, trailer, etc).
