The awkward college dropouts will be back to cast their discerning (and very squinty) eyes over everything that modern culture has to offer after returning last year from a 15-year-break. Presumably a very long Spring Breakâ¦?
The show originally ran for eight series between 1992 and 1997 and the lead characters also starred in the 1996 slapstick feature film Beavis And Butt-head Do America.
The showâs creator and writer, Mike Judge, has said that he plans to make two follow-ups to the upcoming series. The first episode sees the pair try to become brooding vampires in order to attract the girls at school. ButÂ when they confuse a homeless man with a werewolf, they end up being drowned in disease.
Judge â who is also the voice behind the inept pair – thinks his “old-school” cartoon about two troubled teens still stands up well against some of the more recent comedy cartoon offerings.
He said: âI think that Beavis And Butt-Head is more character-based than joke-based. I do happen to think itâs very funny, and there are a lot of jokes.
âBut itâs not really âjoke writingâ. A lot of it is funny because of the way things are said, and the way the characters look, walk and talk. I would like to think the characters are pretty different than a lot of the other animated shows.
âThere are shows like The Simpsons, Family Guy, King of the Hill (which Mike also created) â which are all great shows â but theyâre all about families, and Beavis And Butt-Head are not a family.
âSo, itâs kind of like this old school Three Stooges-style.â?
The new series begins tonight, Monday 16 April at 10pm on MTV, but you can check out a trailer for the new series below.
