Beavis and Butt-Head will never die. The pair have been giggling sociopathic idiots since 1992 and remain so to this day. They were revived for a single season in 2011 and are now back for two more, the first of which will air on Comedy Central in late 2021. In these upcoming episodes, Beavis and Butt-Head will deal with “a whole new Gen Z world” in stories designed to appeal to fresh and old fans alike. But now, they’re going one further, as news has just broken that the duo are also getting a new movie that’ll air on Paramount+.
This will be their second cinematic outing after 1996’s Beavis and Butt-Head Do America. This surprised pretty much everyone on its original release by not only picking up rave reviews from critics (many of whom had never seen the MTV show), but also becoming a sizeable hit, scoring the highest December box office opening in history at that time and going on to be a big seller on home video. Creator Mike Judge has repeatedly said he’d like them to have another feature-length adventure and it seems as if he’s finally gotten his wish.
Most fans of the characters are over the moon at the news, too, and here’s a taste of how it’s going down on social media:
Frasier reboot No Thanks
Beavis & Butthead movie Yes Please

Just clicked on a Variety article titled "What is Paramount Plus and how much does is cost?" While reading, I discovered there will be an original Real World reunion on the network. So between this and the Beavis & Butthead movie, my answer is I DON'T CARE TAKE ALL MY MONEY.

Paramount Plus butchered the Zoom interface for that Beavis & Butthead spot. LOL.

Look I love Beavis & Butthead do America. That movie rules. But B&B are such products of the 90’s culture that reviving them as a movie is gonna be hard as hell. I wish the team best of luck though. If they pull it off, I’ll be a happy camper. pic.twitter.com/p4KeJFatud

People grew up to be the moral panic puritans their parents were, but for different reasons
We need another Beavis & Butthead.

It remains unknown when we’ll see the movie, though it could be a way off yet. First out of the gate will be the new season on Comedy Central and if that’s due this year, then we might have the film release in 2022 or at the latest, in early 2023. While some have their doubts that the show’s toilet humor, bizarre plotlines and general anarchic tone will land in 2021, I reckon Beavis and Butt-Head could be just what society needs right now.
