King of the Hill Could Be Revived, I Tell You H’Whatby

Anyone who remembers watching Fox back in the day will remember that the animated adventures of Hank Hill and his family – a stern-faced propane salesman, an over-zealous ‘Boggle’ enthusiast and their super-imaginative son along with their bizarre neighbors in Arlen, Texas – made up for much of the network’s prime time animated line-up. Alongside the likes of The Simpsons, it became staple viewing from 1997 right through to 2010 – when it was summarily cancelled, much like Futurama before it, in favor of alternative programming. What was the show that King of The Hill supposedly made room for? Family Guy spin-off The Cleveland Show – which has since long been cancelled itself. American Dad, too, has now found a new home on TBS – and fans of Hank Hill et al have been hopeful for some sort of revival for years.

Hopefully, some form of return to Arlen may be on the cards. While The Simpsons continues to saunter forward into its landmark 30th season despite concerns over quality, it seems that Fox are keen to consider Mike Judge’s cult series for another run. CEO of Fox Television Group, Dana Walden, appears keen to suggest that preliminary talks have already taken place between creators Judge and Greg Daniels. “I would like to explore that (the talks),” Walden states. “We had a very preliminary conversation about that. Given what’s going on in the country, I think they had a point of view about how those characters would respond.” Walden is thought to have only met with Daniels and Judge the once in the past year regarding such a concept, however, the fact it has happened at all will be of great solace to King fans.

King of The Hill is a show which still retains a huge cult following and performs well in DVD sales and in streaming through Adult Swim – meaning that Fox reviving the series could result in considerable return viewership to the network in light of its purchase by Disney. Seeing the series back alongside The Simpsons will be fantastic – but whether or not such a plan comes to light remains to be seen. If the likes of Prison Break and X-Files can come back – and Futurama and Family Guy twice – never say never. We could be back in the land of propane marketing and boggle championships in the near future!
