Hulu gave a series order for the revival of the animated sitcom King Of The Hill from 20th Television Animation. The television series debuted on Fox in 1997. It ran for 13 seasons and had more than 250 episodes.
Judge, Kathy Najimy, Stephen Root, Pamela Adlon, Johnny Hardwick, and Lauren Tom, the original cast members, will reprise their roles for the revival of King Of The Hill.
The original co-creators, Mike Judge and Greg Daniels will again work on creating the series. Also, they serve as executive producers, along with Saladin Patterson, who is also a showrunner. 3 Arts’ Michael Rotenberg and Howard Klein, and Bandera Entertainment’s Dustin Davis will serve as executive producers.
The revival has already been in the works since Judge and Daniels reconnected with the actors during the 2017 San Francisco Sketchfest to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the previous Fox animated series. However, the discussions happened before the 21st Century Fox-Disney merger, when Disney acquired 20th Television and many other assets but not the broadcast network.
“Yeah, man I tell you whot man, that dang Ol’ Greg, talking about ‘O.G.’ 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!’ Feeling blessed, man, I tell you whot ‘Feel so Good’ is a great song, I don’t care what no-dang-body says …” said Patterson in a statement.
“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 and Disney Branded Television Streaming Originals.
“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,” he added.
“I’m so lucky to have been a part of this show from the very beginning and couldn’t be more excited to visit Arlen, Texas, once again with Mike, Greg, and Saladin, who together are bringing a whole new perspective to the original series. We all want to thank the fans for their overwhelming support because they helped make this happen, and I can’t wait to share this new iteration through the lens of 2023 America. In the words of our beloved Peggy Hill, Ho yeah!” ” said Marci Proietto, executive vice president of 20th Television Animation.
