The network has inked the deal with the show’s creator and writer, Mike Judge, to write, produce, and provide voice over for both of the main characters. In addition to the two new seasons of the show, the deal includes any spin-offs or specials related to the franchise.
“Beavis and Butt-Head were a defining voice of a generation, and we can’t wait to watch as they navigate the treacherous waters of a world light-years from their own,” Comedy Central President of Entertainment & Youth Group Chris McCarthy said in a statement.
