'King of the Hill' Might Come Back for the Trump Era
Published Aug 08, 2017People are asking big questions in the current political climate, particularly thanks to the rise of Donald Trump in the United States. One of the most burning queries remains unanswered — what present-day political party would King of the Hill patriarch Hank Hill support?
It's a question that has been plaguing Twitter for weeks, and we may soon get an answer. After all, apparently Fox CEO Dana Walden has been in preliminary talks with King of the Hill creators Greg Daniels and Mike Judge with the hopes of bringing the show back.
"I would like to explore that," Walden said at the Television Critics Association [via The Hollywood Reporter]. "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.
That said, it may be a while before we get more episodes. "The meeting was probably two and a half months ago," Walden added. "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."
King of the Hill's initial run concluded in 2009 after 13 seasons.
