King Of The Hill is considered one of the greatest comedy animation shows of all time. And it is officially coming back. There have been rumors circulating for some time that the show was going to make a comeback season. Series creator Mike Judge has been hinting towards this revival for the better part of five years. Now we officially have confirmation that King Of The Hill will be returning to our screen with new episodes at some point in the future. The new episodes will be streaming on Hulu. Let’s talk about all of the details and what we may be seeing in the upcoming new King Of The Hill stories.

The Return Of King Of The Hill

The news just broke recently that Hulu does have an order in for a fourteenth season of the legendary comedy series. King Of The Hill‘s first season came out all the way back in 1997. That makes the show over 25 years old now. The finale of the show came all the way back in 2010 after a series of tumultuous events. Essentially, Fox got rid of King Of The Hill to make room for The Cleveland Brown Show to the chagrin of many dedicated Hank Hill fans.

Thankfully, however, the Season 13 end was not the definitive finale many thought it was. Season 14 will mark the first new episodes of King Of The Hill in over a decade. Mike Judge has been talking about this revival since 2017. Back in 2021, show writer Brent Forrester gave us a hint as to what we can expect from the new episodes.

“The Trump administration made it suddenly very relevant again. The characters have all aged 15 years,” Forrester wrote in a tweet.

It seems like the years since Season 13 will be felt in the King Of The Hill world. We’ll be seeing a significantly different, post-puberty Bobby. It’s also clear that some political themes since the end of the show will be a factor in the new stories. Unsurprising given much of the political content of past King Of The Hill episodes covering life in middle America.

Mike Judge is one of the most prolific comedy writers of the last two decades. He’s been on a hot streak recently with new projects and the revival of some of his greatest legacy projects. This King Of The Hill revival is hot on the heels of his Beavis and Butthead revival which just recently came to Paramount Plus. His most recent original hit show was Silicon Valley, which ran for five very successful years on HBO.

King Of The Hill will be returning with a brand-new season to Hulu soon. As of right now, an official release window has yet to come out.

  1. I’m both so excited for this and extremely worried about the time jump. Not sure Bobby Hill would be as funny as an adult. I always pictured Bobby as an adult as a less pathetic Bill. Would have preferred if they just picked up where the last season stopped. Time jumps are almost always show killers. We’re too invested in these characters to skip fifteen years. Plus fifteen years isn’t big enough a jump to make sense to me. The character of Bobby shared a birth year (if you do the math from season one on) with me. I’m mid-thirties. Bobby should be too but the jump will only take him to his twenties, making him born in the nineties in the very years the original show aired. Doesn’t make sense to me. The Beavis and Butt-Head rivival was awful and relied on nostalgia for laughs as opposed to writing like the original. A big disappointment to me. Don’t want to see that happen to my favorite childhood cartoon.

  2. A time jump makes for a cool one-time episode. In fact, I really like it when a show ends in a time skip, but time-jumping the series is a really risky move. Oh well. I’m sure they can make it work.
