I tell you whot, King of the Hill is coming back! While a revival of the show has been hinted at a few times over the past few years, it's now been confirmed that Hulu has ordered its return. 

Staying true to its roots, co-creators Mike Judge and Greg Daniels are returning to Arlen, TX, alongside the show's original cast — including Kathy Najimy as Peggy Hill, Stephen Root as Bill, Pamela Adlon as Bobby Hill, Johnny Hardwick as Dale, Lauren Tom as Minh and, of course, Judge as Hank Hill. 

"We are all so excited to welcome back Hank, Peggy and Bobby, and to see what they have to say about the world we live in and continue the conversations we began years ago," said ABC Entertainment, Hulu and Disney Branded Television Streaming Originals president Craig Erwich [via Deadline]. "This show has all of the perfect ingredients to meet this moment in animation at Hulu, and we're so thankful to be having those conversations alongside this talented group."

On top of the original cast, Saladin Patterson will join as executive producer. "Yeah, man I tell you whot man, that dang Ol' Greg, talking about O.G. and then that Mike Judge … Inspirations, man … the original show, dang ol' classic … Got my kids, man, walking around talking about 'That's my purse! I don't know you!' Feeling blessed, man, I tell you whot 'Feel So Good' is a great song, I don't care what no-dang-body says …" he aptly stated.

The King of the Hill reboot will be available on Disney+ in Canada — where all 13 previous seasons of the show currently live.

Considering how consistent King of the Hill stayed over the years, we're very excited for this one — though still wondering if it will actually involve a time jump as Daniels once implied.
