A “King of the Hill” revival has been ordered to series at Hulu, Variety reports. The revival was officially announced over a year ago, but was expected to land on FOX. However, the network passed on the show last fall.
The updated version of the beloved adult animated comedy hails from original series creators Mike Judge and Greg Daniels as well as Saladin Patterson. All three are executive producers on the show, with Patterson also set to serve as showrunner. Judge and Daniels executive produce under their Bandera Entertainment banner. 3 Arts’ Michael Rotenberg and Howard Klein also executive produce along with Bandera’s Dustin Davis. 20th Television Animation is the studio.
Judge will once again lead the voice cast, with original cast members Kathy Najimy, Stephen Root, Pamela Adlon, Johnny Hardwick, and Lauren Tom all returning.
This marks the second Fox animated comedy to get revived at Hulu. It has been reported that “Futurama” was being brought back at the streamer with the entire original voice cast returning. Hulu has given that show a 20 episode order.
