The behind-the-scenes team is set to return, though: Judge and co-creator Greg Daniels are both back on board as executive producers, while writer-producer Saladin Patterson is on board as showrunner. Patterson is a newcomer to the series whose past showrunner credits include “Dave,” “The Wonder Years” reboot (which he created), and “The Last O.G.”
Hulu president Craig Erwich shared excitement for the new series in a statement, saying, “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.” Erwich added that the series “has all of the perfect ingredients to meet this moment in animation at Hulu.” With the show set to continue in its original fictional Arlen, Texas setting, I can imagine any conversations it’ll be having in 2023 will be interesting and hilarious. I also can’t wait to find out if Bobby grew up to be, as queer fans often speculate based on his entirely relatable experiences and personality, a gay or trans icon.
The fourteenth season of “King of the Hill” does not yet have a release date, but will premiere on Hulu. You can also catch the show’s original run on Hulu while you wait.
