The show, which premiered in 1997, followed Texas propane salesman Hank Hill and his family. The show aired over 250 episodes on Fox and ran for thirteen seasons. Now, over a decade later, rumors of a revival have surfaced on the popular platform Reddit.

In a statement obtained by Tech Radar, King of the Hill writer Brent Forester added fuel to the fire by admitting that the show creators, Mike Judge and Greg Daniels, are in “hot negotiations” to bring back the popular series. Still, there will be changes to the show’s timeline. The creators will not pick the show up where they left off; instead, the Hill family will have aged during their time off the air. Bobby Hill, who was entering his teens on the show, will be in his twenties in the reboot. The time jump will make for an exciting twist if creators are given the green light.
