Paramount+ has announced that the second season of adult animated series “Mike Judge’s Beavis And Butt-Head”, about two cartoon teenagers famous for their nasally laughs and love of heavy metal, will premiere two episodes on the service Thursday, April 20 in the U.S. and Canada, and in Australia and the U.K. on Friday, April 21, with further international markets to follow. In the second season of “Mike Judge’s Beavis And Butt-Head”, Beavis and Butt-Head triumphantly return as two guys who like things that are cool and don’t like things that suck.

Created and voiced by writer, producer and director Mike 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”. After MTV commissioned a full series around the characters, “Beavis And Butt-Head” ran for seven seasons, from March 8, 1993 to November 28, 1997. The series was revived in 2011 with an 8th season airing on MTV, and returned with its 9th season (and first since 2011) in 2022 on Paramount+, alongside its first movie since 1996 titled “Beavis And Butt-Head Do The Universe.”

On why the 2011 revival was so short-lived, Judge explained in a Rolling Stone interview that there were simply too many problems behind the scenes. “Things didn’t quite click,” he said. “There were a lot of problems on the animation side of things, trying to get it to look right. I don’t know if that played into it. But it actually did pretty well — the ratings were good. MTV just didn’t want to do anymore. But this time, with Paramount+, there was just more enthusiasm behind it. And we were starting off with a movie, going bigger, rather than, “Here’s episode number 198.” The movie brought a real energy back.”

During its initial run, “Beavis And Butt-Head” received widespread critical acclaim for its satirical, scathing commentary on society. The show’s popularity spawned various related media, including the theatrical film “Beavis And Butt-Head Do America” in 1996.
