Nearly 30 years after debuting on MTV (and two films, a video game and one revival later), Beavis and Butt-Head are bringing more stupidity to the small screen. Creator Mike Judge’s animated teen delinquents are back in a new TV series that’s now streaming exclusively on Paramount+.
Originally set to debut on Comedy Central, the ninth season of Beavis and Butt-Head comes after running for seven seasons on MTV from 1993 to 1997. The first feature-length film, Beavis and Butt-Head Do America, was released in 1996, and the show was brought back for one season in 2011.
The show’s ninth season picks up after this summer’s feature-length Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe. Following in the footsteps of the original series, episodes will feature music videos from modern-day musicians including BTS, Camila Cabello, Cale Dodds, Cnco, Olivia Rodrigo, Post Malone and Tyler the Creator, reports Pitchfork.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Judge explains how he brought the dumb duo out of the ’90s and into 2022.
“One of the things that I really wanted to try doing, that we set up in Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe, is where there’s sort of this quantum entanglement, split-universe thing,” he tells THR. “So, there will be episodes where they’ll be middle-aged, and those are a lot of fun to do. I think it’s just kind of keeping the pure nature of the characters, always has been, but now in the modern day. That was a big thought going into this. But if it feels right, it’s usually good.”
Below, read on to find out the episode release schedule for the new Beavis and Butt-Head TV series, how to stream the show for free and merch for fans to shop online.
