Uh huh huh huh huh, smack: Beavis and Butt-Head is back! Comedy Central has announced an expansive deal with Emmy Award-winning creator of the show Mike Judge to re-imagine MTV’s seminal, Gen X-defining Beavis and Butt-Head, as well as additional spin-offs and specials.

If B&B were in Slayer
It's time to rock out -- and put our shirts over our heads. Beavis and Butt-Head, which premiered on MTV back in 1993, quickly became a force in pop culture and started a television revolution with its pure, unadulterated, satirical commentary on youth and adolescence.

The unprecedented concept, featuring two awkward teenage couch potatoes, immediately became part of the vernacular in a way no other adult animated series had before.

Will MTV be winning any awards for this?
Known for tackling social issues including bad music videos, teen obesity, workers’ rights, and media trends, the show connected with an entire generation, laying claim as one of the most innovative series in the modern-day zeitgeist.

In this new iteration Beavis and Butt-Head are entering a whole new Gen Z world. Comedy Central has ordered two seasons of the new series with meta-themes relatable to both new and old fans, Gen X parents and their Gen Z kids. B&B are parents with kids!

Judge is set to write, produce, and provide voice-over for both iconic characters, just as he originally did. Check MTV News for more Beavis and Butt-Head updates. More
