Creator Mike Judge teased the upcoming original film with some pretty baffling new character designs on his Twitter feed.
It’s been a decade since “Beavis and Butt-Head” was last seen on the small screen, and if you can look at creator Mike Judge’s sketches, they hit the 2010s a lot harder than the rest of us .
It was 2011 when MTV revived the idiots of the ’90s for a single-season revival, but the rock-and-roll duo never seem too far from Judge’s mind. He has described it as the creation he is most proud of and says he is constantly thinking about ways to bring it back as long as they are authentic and relevant.

Originally broadcast on MTV from 1992 to 1997, Beavis and Butt-Head became icons of pop culture and spawned a major feature film in 1996. Their particular kind of simple idiocy was the perfect antidote for the music video generation (they spent half of their episodes enjoying the latest videos).
After South Park’s success in making full-length films available on Paramount’s streaming platform, it is no great surprise that other intellectual property rights have been explored. But what fans may not have expected is that there could be one more parallel between the two traits.
One of the most notable things about the last two “South Park” films is that they mostly showed adult versions of the children taking place in a post-COVID future where things turned on very much for Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny have evolved in unexpected ways.
Well, on Jan. 4th, Judge tweeted a picture that could either be a big joke for longtime fans of Beavis and Butt-Head, or a real teaser of what’s to come. If you thought middle-aged South Park kids were staggering, you haven’t seen anything.

Judge teased the upcoming film project, saying only that it would be “soon”. Then he added, “You need some time to get back in shape.” That could mean by the time the film premieres, they’ll be the same timeless teenagers that a generation loved (and hated their parents), or maybe they will … this.
They look about their age if they had aged normally as teenagers since they premiered in 1992. So maybe Judge offers fans a bit of both for his film project?
There has already been talk of a complete revival of the series, which seems more in line with the original, although it has been updated for the modern era. Comedy Central announced back in July that it had offered the duo a two-season engagement – it is unclear whether this deal will affect this one or simply complement it.

According to the network, its revival will take place in “a whole new Gen Z world,” far from the ’90s culture that made them famous. The series – which promises to be filled with “meta-topics for new and old fans”.
“It seemed like the time had come to go stupid again,” said creator Mike Judge of her return. Judge will write, produce, and speak both characters for the revival.
Ultimately, if it’s a proper Beavis and Butt-Head project, it won’t be about anything. The guys are best when they’re just strolling around trying to score points with hot chicks, get in trouble at school, break things, start fires and drive their neighbors crazy.
