• 'Beavis and Butthead' returns through a 're-imagined' TV show for Gen Z
  • It show was last aired in the mid-90s
  • Another cartoon, "Jodie," will debut featuring Daria's friend

Comedy Central announced that they have recently completed a deal with filmmaker Mike Judge to do a re-imagination of MTV’s iconic series, “Beavis and Butt-Head.” The series will also join other specials, including “Daria” spin-off “Jodie.”

The television company has already ordered two seasons of the new and reimagined series containing meta-themes. This is to make the new series relatable to new Gen-Z fans, the main market, and fans of the old series – mostly parents of the Gen-Z crowd. The renewed “Beavis and Butt-Head” brings the iconic duo into a whole new, Gen-Z dominated world.

Chris McCarthy, President of Entertainment & Youth Group, expressed excitement and thrill at working with Judge once again. Judge was responsible for a lot of iconic series, some of which are “Silicon Valley” and “King of the Hill.”

“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,” he said. “It seemed like the time was right to get stupid again.”

Another series – a similar blast from the 90s – is also in the works. According to The Denver Channel, the “Daria” spin-off “Jodie” will be joining the socially awkward duo as it reintroduces itself to a whole new legion of viewers.

Creator and head writer Grace Edwards will join the new series, which focuses on Jodie Landon, an old friend of Daria’s from high school. The character will be voiced by Tracee Ellis Ross, and will be a satire of workplace culture, among others; it will also shed light on how things have changed since “Daria” aired.

Comedy Central issued a statement that shed more light on the series and it appears to also contain support for women’s empowerment as well as Black Lives Matter movement, to a certain extent. Themes of empowerment along with gender and racial lines and how privilege is exploited will be explored, while the main character observes it all with a wicked sense of humor.

There had been no definite launch dates released for either of the series so far.
