Mike Judge has a glimpse into middle-aged versions of Beavis and Butthead before an upcoming reboot of the movie.
take up Twitter, the creators of Beavis and Butt-Head, revealed pictures of the couple as they would be now, and it looks like they’ve seen better days.
“Beavis and Butt-Head will be back this year with a brand new film and more on Paramount +,” he said. “No exact date yet, but soon. You need some time to get back in shape. “

The pictures show the duo in later years, with Butt-Head wearing a fat belly and a strongly receding hairline, while Beavis now wears glasses to complement his missing teeth.
Whether this middle-aged reinterpretation will appear in the upcoming movie or TV show remains to be seen, but it’s certainly a distinctive look. And it could prove to be a creative way to keep the franchise going.
Of course the series was previously tied to continue on Comedy Central after the broadcaster ordered two seasons of a brand new series that Beavis and Butt-Head placed in 2020.
It’s unclear if this is the same direction for Judge’s new Paramount + projects, but either way, it’s good news for Beavis and Butt-Head fans.
Beavis and Butt-Head originally made their debut in Judge’s short film Frog Baseball in 1992, before getting their own series on MTV in 1993. A combination of edgy humor and social satire, the show gained a huge following and is often referred to as the voice of Generation X.
The show was revived for an eighth season back in 2011 and is now set to return.
As Judge points out, it is not yet known when the movie or TV show will be out on Paramount +, but apparently it will be soon.
