When it comes to reanimating (hah!) animated TV shows, there's been quite a few that haven't had much luck.

'Harvey Birdman: Attorney At Law', for example, is back on Adult Swim albeit with weird animation that somehow makes it look cheap. On the other side, the likes of 'Spongebob Squarepants' have found new life in movies, and everyone's the happier for it.

'King of the Hill', created by Mike Judge and Greg Daniels, was one of the longest-running animated series on Fox, going from 1997 up until 2009. The series followed the disciplined, ever-honest propane salesman Hank Hill, his wife Peggy, their only son Bobby, and various other supporting characters along the way, including Hank's band of misfit friends.

All told, the series ran for 259 episodes and included some high-profile special guests along the way, including Johnny Knoxville, Alan Rickman, Tom Petty, Carl Reiner, and many others. What set it apart from other animated shows, other than the style, was how it dealt with realism much more than other shows of its kind.

At any rate, the series has been long due a revival and previous attempts in the past have fallen by the wayside. However, in a recent Reddit AMA, one of the show's writers - Brent Forrester - revealed that Greg Daniels and Mike Judge are currently in "hot negotiations" to get the show back on the air.

Forrester also revealed that the show has become far more relevant in the era of the Trump Administration, and that the show - if it came back - would be aged up 15 years to our time. Hank Hill was famously a Republican and a pretty conservative one at that, which was often at odds with some of the characters in the show. Not only that, one of his friends - Dale Gribble - was a rapid conspiracy theorist, so odds are he's deep into QAnon at this stage.

As you can tell from all of this, it's obviously early days with it - but here's hoping this one makes it back, as it's a cracking show.
