The animated comedy’s sophomore outing will premiere next month with two episodes; new season touted by the streamer as the triumphant return of ‘two guys who like things that are cool and don’t like things that suck.’
Hot off the presses! Paramount+ just announced that Season 2 of Mike Judge’s Beavis and Butt-Head will premiere with two episodes on April 20 in the U.S. and Canada and April 21 in Australia and the U.K. Other international markets will follow.
In an incredible narrative news flash coup, for the show’s second season, the streamer shares that Beavis and Butt-Head triumphantly return as two guys who like things that are cool and don’t like things that suck.
The series, from Emmy Award-winning creator Mike Judge and MTV Entertainment Studios, premiered last August on Paramount+, following the streamer’s release of the critically acclaimed original film Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe. The platform also hosts the 1996 classic movie Beavis and Butt-Head Do America, as well as remastered versions of the classic series that originally ran for seven seasons from March 1993 to November 1997. The series was revived in 2011 with an eighth season airing on MTV.
Launched in 1993, Beavis and Butt-Head quickly became a force in pop culture and started a television revolution with its satirical commentary on youth and adolescence. Centered around two teenage couch potatoes/losers, “Beavis” and “Butt-Head,” the concept immediately became part of the vernacular. It was known for tackling social issues, including teen obesity, workers’ rights, and media trends. And the loving embrace of stupidity.
Created and voiced by Judge, the characters of Beavis and Butt-Head originated in Judge’s 1992 short film Frog Baseball, which was broadcast by MTV’s animation showcase “Liquid Television” before the network commissioned an entire series based on the characters.
Mike Judge’s Beavis and Butt-Head is executive produced by Judge, Lew Morton, Michael Rotenberg, Chris Prynoski, Shannon Prynoski, Ben Kalina, and Antonio Canobbio for Titmouse.
