Hulu announced today that King of the Hill is coming back to television. The streaming service has ordered a reboot of the iconic animated series that will bring back co-creators Mike Judge and Greg Daniels, as well as the original voice talent.
The show debuted in 1997, airing a total of 259 episodes across 13 seasons. During that time it received critical acclaim and accolades, including an Emmy Award in 1999 for Outstanding Animated Program. It was also named as one of Time Magazine's greatest TV shows of all time.
"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, 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."
Set in the fictional town of Arlen, Texas, King of the Hill follows the life of Hank Hill, a propane gas salesman; his wife Peggy, local Boggle champ and substitute teacher; and their 13-year-old son, Bobby, who defies any expectation his father had for a son. Hank's friends, along with Peggy's friends, help the Hills navigate a changing world.
I had a feeling this was coming back!
I think the title is different, so I could wrong, or right.
The show will be fine without Luanne but I will miss her crying and making Hank uncomfortable.
They probably won't kill off the characters or Luanne and Lucky (Tom Petty who also passed away) but instead give them a happy off screen ending where they moved away somewhere to live happily ever after.
