Could King of the Hill Be Returning to Television?
King of the hill made it debut on Fox back in 1997 and ran for 13 seasons. The final episode aired on September 13, 2009. Now after eight years, the show may be coming back to television.
FOX has apparently had several conversations with creator Mike Judge. According to hollywoodreporter, Fox Television Group chairman and CEO Dana Walden had a meeting with King of the Hill creators Greg Daniels and Mike Judge. When ask how the meeting went, he said:
"I would like to explore that. We had a very preliminary conversation given what's going on in the country; they had a point of view about how those characters would respond. But again, it was one meeting and I hope to revisit it. The meeting was probably two and a half months ago. They're both very busy and it was really just a first exploratory, 'Are you excited about this? Is there potential in that future?' And they were both excited about it, but they're working on a lot of different things individually, so it's about finding time."
Daniels is currently an executive producer on TBS' alien comedy People of Earth and Judge is is currently busy with HBO’s Silicon Valley.
