We Gathered Every Available Detail On The King Of The Hill Reboot


The animated comedy series King of the Hill is expected to return at some point soon. The new animation firm Bandera Entertainment was established by series creators Mike Judge and Greg Daniels in January of this year. The company will serve as a platform for the creation of numerous new episodes. One of their many stated projects, the resurrection of Judge and Daniels’ classic sitcom King of The Hill, has attracted the most interest. Here is all the information you need to know about the King of the Hill revival.

King of the Hill, which debuted on the FOX network in 1997, stunned viewers by being one of the more realistic animated programmes of the time. Episodes depict the day-to-day activities of sincere propane salesman Hank Hill, who resides in the fictional Texas town of Arlen with his extroverted wife Peggy and their oddball kid Bobby. King of the Hill captured viewers’ attention with its accessible topics and realistic characters in contrast to sitcoms that were more outlandish, like The Simpsons. The sitcom was successful consistently for 13 seasons before being abruptly cancelled in 2009.

King of the Hill is still adored by viewers despite having ended more than ten years ago, proving that it has stood the test of time. A King of the Hill revival has long been desired. Over the years, the programme has developed a cult following, and the original creators’ enthusiasm for the revival clearly suggests that they are committed to the undertaking. The King of the Hill reboot is presently known to have the following.

King Of The Hill’s Revival Is Finally Coming

Since 2017, Judge and Daniels have been negotiating a King of the Hill revival with FOX. Unfortunately, no agreement was achieved despite efforts, and neither the show’s creators nor the network provided an explanation. Given the era, it is likely that the network denied the request in order to concentrate on other projects, such as a revival of the well-known sci-fi series The X-Files. Judge and Daniels will have the funding necessary to launch the revival’s production thanks to Bandera Entertainment.

Why King Of The Hill Was Canceled

Although King of the Hill continuously had high ratings, they were overwhelmed by the rising popularity of the animated shows that accompanied it on FOX. Seth MacFarlane, a comedian, rose to fame at FOX in the middle of the 2000s with the help of his sitcoms Family Guy and American Dad!, both of which were known for their fast-paced, offbeat humour. King of the Hill’s low viewership effectively caused it to be cancelled and replaced by MacFarlane’s The Cleveland Show, a spin-off focused on a Family Guy supporting character.

Where Will King Of The Hill Air?

Given that King of the Hill was initially a Fox IP, the FOX network would be a natural candidate for its return; however, the failure of the 2017 negotiations makes this less likely. The resurrection might instead be shown on a streaming service like Netflix. The possibility that King of the Hill will be streamed on services other than FOX is increased by the availability of previous episodes on Hulu. There might be some arrangements made to bring Judge’s other productions over as the impending Beavis and Butthead revival is now streaming on Paramount+.

What King Of The Hill’s Revival Could Be About

The only substantial plot information that has been revealed by King of the Hill’s producers is a time jump that skips a few years in the future. This idea allows up a wide range of plot possibilities for the revival, allowing us to see earlier iterations of the Hill family and their friends overcoming fresh obstacles. Furthermore, the revival may serve as the series’ unambiguous conclusion, especially in light of the fact that it is not Judge or Daniels’ only production. Daniels stated that he and Judge aim to have “more of a supervisory role [at Bandera Entertainment]… to help other people fulfil their dreams” in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. Because the original King of the Hill finale was unexpected for both creators, it’s possible that Judge and Daniels will bid King of the Hill adieu before going on to new projects.

Mike Judge Has Provided Hope Around The King Of The Hill Reboot

Mike Judge provided a brief but encouraging update on the impending King Of The Hill revival. Co-creator Judge stated in response to a fan question at SDCC 2022 that “King of the Hill has a very strong probability of returning.” Although the panel was discussing the imminent Beavis and Butthead revival, which accounts for Judge’s briefness, it is encouraging to learn that Hank, Peggy, and Bobby are still in his line of sight. The forthcoming Paramount+ revival of Judge’s debut programme may be followed soon by a King of the Hill reboot as Judge also mentioned a metaverse based on Beavis and Butthead.

The Tragic Reason Luanne Can’t Return For The Reboot

On all 13 seasons of King of the Hill, the underappreciated Brittany Murphy provided the voice of Luanne Platter, Hank and Peggy’s niece. Unfortunately, Murphy tragically passed away in 2009 from pneumonia. Since there was never a season 14 and just four episodes remained to air when she passed away, the issue of Luanne’s recasting was never properly addressed. It’s practically a given that Luanne won’t be recast or make an appearance in the relaunch when Mike Judge starts talking seriously about the King of the Hill resurrection decades later. Since the show’s cancellation, everyone agrees that Luanne was one of the best characters, and Brittany Murphy’s portrayal of the character is a major contributing factor to the role’s ongoing positive reception.

One of the funniest lines of speech in all 13 seasons of King of the Hill is undoubtedly the dispute between Hank and Luanne about whether a trailer ends when it falls over. It would be disrespectful to Brittany Murphy’s legacy to have Luanne recast for the revival. It’s not necessary for Luanne to pass away (although it would be touching to begin with a TV funeral for the character that also pays tribute to the actress, as has been done in other sitcoms), but she does need to leave Arlen in such a way that the possibility of her coming back is completely and unquestionably eliminated. A happy but satisfying conclusion for the cherished King of the Hill character would be appreciated because Luanne was an incredibly likeable character in addition to being funny.
