• [NEWS] "King of the Hill" to be revived?? (adult animation)

    Why?!? It's adolescent crudeness, badly drawn, stupid storylines, and completely and utterly unfunny. :-\

    From TheBrag.com ...

    Looks like 'King of the Hill' is set to be
    the latest show to get the revival treatment
    King of the Hill co-creators Mike Judge and Greg Daniels are
    apparently in "hot negotiations" for a revival of the '00s
    animated sitcom. 

    Although the show may have achieved relatively moderate
    success compared to some of its counterparts, it seems the
    demand for a reboot is high.

    During a recent Reddit AMA, former Kill of the Hill writer
    Brent Forrester revealed the renewed interest when he
    answered a question about reviving the series.

    "Have you heard any updates as to the possible King of the
    Hill revival? Aging the cast of characters would be a stroke
    of genius and practically reinvent the show (in an awesome
    way!)" a Reddit user wrote.

    "I am sure Greg Daniels and Mike Judge will murder me for
    sharing this but... HELL YES," Forrester replied.

    "They are in hot negotiations to bring back King of the Hill.
    The Trump administration made it suddenly very relevant
    again. The characters have all aged 15 years. The project is
    sooooo good. Okay I've said too much," he concluded.

    Well, it's not clear how happy Daniels and Judge may be about
    Forrester spilling the beans, but there you have it.

    If the revival does indeed go down the road of setting the
    show 15 years later, it will certainly stand out amongst the
    majority of animated series' that present characters as
    seemingly ageless.

    However, questions have already been raised as to how the
    series, which originally ran from 1997 to 2009, would
    translate in 2021.

    Considering the show is centred around a conservative Texas
    family, it is unclear if and how politics will play a part.

    As reported by Consequence of Sound, the show's original run
    covered hot button topics including gun ownership, conspiracy
    theories and racism.
