Mike Judge teases new Beavis and Butt-Head feature coming in 2022
Animation legend Mike Judge teases Beavis and Butthead fans before the first observation of the duo since the reboot of the short-lived series in 2011, giving a first glimpse of how the duo might have come of age since their high school days. And suffice to say, it is not pretty. During the process, the judge also confirmed that the next Beavis and Butthead the movie for Paramount +, first announced in the spring of last year, is indeed due to arrive in 2022.
Tuesday evening, the creator of series like Beavis and Butthead and king of the hill tweeted a few drawings of the couple, apparently depicting the duo of now middle-aged former juvenile delinquents. Butt-Head has swelled to particularly round proportions over the years that have passed, while Beavis now has glasses and teeth in a fun way missing. The judge joked that the two “need some time to get back in shape,” which makes us wonder if the creator would actually commit to an entire movie of a middle-aged adult, Beavis and Butt. -Head. One can only imagine the horrible lives these two would live… but would they still be roommates?
The still-untitled film essentially serves as a reintroduction for the pair ahead of a new series on Comedy Central, which would eventually end up on Paramount + as well. It will be the couple’s first feature film since 1996. Beavis and Butt-Head make America, a movie we’ve gotten nostalgic for recently as a perfect comedy of its time. The original series, meanwhile, ran from 1993 to 1997 and was noted for its clever commentary on MTV music videos before serving as a launching pad for other characters such as Daria Morgendorffer.
We can probably expect more Beavis and Butthead coming soon, like a movie title or a release date. In the meantime, check out Judge’s rather grotesque little sketches below.
Beavis and Butt-Head will be back this year with a brand new movie and more on Paramount +. No precise date yet, but soon. They need time to get back in shape. pic.twitter.com/tN5rePP9Kn
