Hulu’s revival of the hit animated series “King of the Hill” appears to be underway, with table reads already in progress. The show’s original voice cast, including Stephen Root, who voiced Bill Dauterive and Buck Strickland, will be returning for the reboot. The revival is expected to feature a time jump, with the characters appearing older than they did in the original series.
Co-creator Greg Daniels confirmed earlier this year that the plan was for the new show to take place 15 years after the original series ended, which means that major character Bobby Hill, the son of protagonist Hank Hill, will be around 28 years old in the revival. Hank and his wife Peggy will be in their mid-50s.
“King of the Hill” originally premiered on Fox in 1997 and ran for 13 seasons until its finale in 2009. The show remained popular in syndication, with fans clamoring for a revival for years. The reboot was given a straight-to-series order by Hulu in January 2022.
“King of the Hill” is not the only former Fox animated series to be rebooted on Hulu, following in the footsteps of “Futurama” and “Beavis and Butt-Head.” The show is sure to attract a large audience of both old fans and new viewers eager to see what’s in store for the beloved characters in their new, older incarnations.
