She noted that while the creators were excited at the idea of "King of the Hill" returning to television, they also both had prior commitments and projects to attend to.

"We have had preliminary conversations with Greg [Daniels] and Mike [Judge]", Dana Walden, Chairman and CEO of Fox Television Group, says. It famously took a more realistic approach than many of its animated peers, and the concept caught on. 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. Fox has just announced they are in talks to bring back one of its most popular animated shows ever, King of the Hill. "I hope to revisit it".

"They were both excited about it, but they're working on a lot of different things individually, so it's about finding the time", she said. Deadline reports FOX is interested in reviving the cancelled TV show. The show's still running on Fox. That was "King of the Hill", created by Mike Judge and Greg Daniels. Hill is married to his wife Peggy (Kathy Najimy) and together they have a prepubescent boy named Bobby Hill (Emmy victor Pamela Adlon).

Daniels is now executive producer and showrunner for the TBS comedy People of Earth, while Judge is the showrunner and creator for HBO's Silicon Valley. And Judge himself is no stranger to reviving old series-Beavis and Butthead aired an eighth season in 2011, 14 years after its original run had ended. Judge, meanwhile, is a showrunner on HBO's critical darling Silicon Valley.

"It's hard to live up to that block and those shows right now are so iconic, they're so connected to our brand", Walden said.

"We are not ready to discuss it yet". Walden confirmed that there are five or six shows are being developed.
