Considering revivals are the du jour thing in TV, it's no surprise that King of the Hill is being fixed up for one.
Variety reports that Fox have had "preliminary conversations" with Greg Daniels and Mike Judge about a possible new series of King of the Hill. The animated series, which followed a propane salesman named Hank Hill and his family, ran from 1997 until 2009 and was widely hailed as one of the most original adult animated series on television.
Speaking to Variety, Fox Television head-honcho Dana Walden said that he'd spoken to Daniels and Judge about a revival series, and that both were excited about the possibility. "Given what’s going on in the country, I think they had a point of view about how those characters would respond," said Walden.
"It was really just a first, exploratory, ‘Are you excited about this?’ They were both excited about it but they’re both very busy individually so it’s about finding time." Considering the huge success of Twin Peaks, and how most TV studios are keen to bring viewers back from the likes of Netflix with the possibility of much-loved shows returning, it's no surprise that King of the Hill is being talked about.
The question is, of course, is whether it'll be as good as before.
