Mike Judge Unveils First Sketches of Aging ‘Beavis and Butt-Head’ for 2022 Movie
Mike Judge, creator of the the iconic cartoon show Beavis and Butt-Head, has confirmed some great news that puts 2022 in an even better position — a new Beavis and Butt-Head movie will be released at some point this year. And Judge recently revealed some new sketches of the lovable duo, who appear to be all grown up in middle-age.
There's been a lot of talk about a Beavis and Butt-Head revival in recent years, concerning both the episodic program and a full-length movie. In the summer of 2020, it was revealed that a ninth and 10th season starring the crass, metal-loving teenagers were expected to come out on Comedy Central and put the duo into the modern-day Gen Z world.
While news stalled on that front, Paramount+ released a video announcement last year, which confirmed a new Beavis and Butt-Head flick, the followup to 1996's Beavis and Butt-Head Do America.
Judge, who is also the co-creator of animated standout King of the Hill, has pushed this momentum into 2022 with a tweet (see below) that says, "Beavis and Butt-Head will be returning this year with a brand new movie and more on Paramount+. No exact date yet, but soon. They need some time to get back in shape."
Two black-and-white sketches accompanied the announcement, which suggested that the film's stars have aged in real-time since their '90s breakout. Notably absent were the AC/DC and Metallica logos that adorned their clothes all those years ago.
The age-jump also aligns with another recently released Paramount+ special, South Park: Post Covid, where the characters in Matt Stone and Trey Parker's infamous cartoon were thrust into the future and depicted as adults. A sequel, South Park: Post Covid: The Return of Covid, was released shortly after.
