Beavis and Butt-Head are coming back to TV in a reimagined version of the animated series about a pair of Gen X slackers.

“It seemed like the time was right to get stupid again,” Mike Judge, the creator and voice of both characters, said in a statement.

Judge will write and produce the series and again will voice the characters in a deal that includes other spin-offs and specials.

The original series, which drew praise for its social satire and criticism for its raunchy humor and violence, aired until 1997 and was briefly revived in 2011. The characters jumped to the big screen in 1996 with “Beavis and Butt-Head Do America”.

“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 executive Chris McCarthy said in the announcement, which didn’t include an air date.

Judge’s other TV series credits include “Silicon Valley” and “King of the Hill”. RGA
