The show’s creator Mike Judge shared a tweet on Tuesday confirming the brand new movie is coming in 2022. He also teased some early sketches of the aged-up Beavis and Butt-Head. Judge promised “a brand new movie and more” before noting there is “no exact date yet” as the iconic characters “need some time to get back in shape.”

In the accompanying sketches, Beavis and Butt-Head are sporting a pair of pot bellies and look distinctly wrinklier. Beavis is also wearing glasses, and Butt-Head appears to be smoking a cigarette.
The news of a Beavis and Butt-Head movie comes after Comedy Central ordered two seasons of a Judge-led reboot back in 2020. The King of the Hill creator will return to write and produce the popular animated series, in addition to voicing the two lead characters.
“We are thrilled to be working with Mike Judge and the great team at 3 Arts again as we double down on Adult Animation at Comedy Central” said Chris McCarthy, President of Entertainment & Youth Group, in a previous statement.
He continued: “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.”
The upcoming movie marks the second Beavis and Butt-Head feature film following 1996’s Beavis and Butt-Head Do America. It is also the second time the series has been rebooted, after its one-season return in 2011 on MTV.
Beavis and Butt-Head originally aired on MTV from 1993-1997 and was one of the network’s most popular shows at a time when the channel was still primarily focused on music. The series, praised for its satirical social commentary, saw teenage slackers Beavis and Butt-Head poking fun at music videos and failing to attract girls.
