A new season of the animated comedy series follows the success of the film Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe, which was released in June
A new season of the American adult animated series Beavis and Butt-Head comes to the streaming service Paramount Plus more than a decade after the eighth season’s release.
Beavis and Butt-Head first aired in 1993 and follows two heavy metal obsessed teenagers doing stupid things out of boredom. The pair have a narrow view of the world – everything is either “cool” or “crappy,” and Beavis happens to be obsessed with fire.
The series was marred by controversy as soon as it aired when a mother accused the show of teaching her son about fire after he burned down her trailer, resulting in the death of her young daughter.
Despite the fact that it was later revealed that the child hadn’t seen the show before the tragedy, controversy had already swirled, but that couldn’t stop the show’s runaway success.
The show’s first seven seasons aired on MTV between 1993 and 1997. The eighth season came in 2011 and now, almost 30 years after the show began, she’s back for the ninth season.
What is Beavis and Butt-Head about?
The synopsis for Season 9 reads: “The iconic animated duo Beavis and Butt-Head are back and dumber than ever!
“90s pop culture phenomena return, voiced by creator Mike Judge to confound common sense, torment each other and present some of the silliest comedy imaginable.”
The ninth season showcases the trappings of modern life that weren’t there when the characters were first created.
In episode one, Beavis and Butt-Head try to solve an escape room but find themselves trapped in the bathroom.
In the second episode, the pair will be trapped again, this time in a cardboard box, before attempting to harvest honey from a wasps’ nest.
The series is considered a major influence on the creators of South Park and Rick and Morty – both series take a satirical look at life in Central America.
Who is in the cast?
In the ninth season of Beavis and Butt-Head there is only one main character and that is the series creator Mike Judge.
Judge plays both Beavis and Butt-Head, the dopey best friends, on the show. Judge is also a co-creator of King of the Hill, The Goode Family and Silicon Valley.
He directed the cult classic Office Space, as well as crime comedy Extract and action comedy Idiocracy.
Judge’s other acting roles include voicing several characters on shows he helped create, including King of the Hill and The Goode Family.
When is the Beavis and Butt-Head release date?
Beavis and Butt-Head Season 9 is available to watch on Paramount Plus in the UK from August 5th.
The first two episodes will be released on August 5th and later episodes will be released weekly. There are four episodes in the ninth season.
All seasons 1-8 of Beavis and Butt-Head, as well as the films Beavis and Butt-Head Do America and Beavis and Butt-Head Do The Universe are now available to watch on Paramount Plus.
