Talking to The Hollywood Reporter recently, Fox Entertainment president Michael Thorn said that the original home King of the hill will not be part of any potential new series. According to Thorn, the focus for Fox is instead on their newer wave of animated series and seemingly less on their legacy shows.

“It’s not going to be with Fox,” Thorn said. “We love that team and we love that show. It’s obviously part of our animation heritage. But we’re really focusing on animation and kind of launching the next wave of our signature animated series while still having our great legacy shows.”

The news comes after the formation of Bandera Entertainment by Mike Judge and co-creator Greg Daniels. Among the list of series the company was working on at the time was a King of the hill revival was performed. More information then emerged at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, when Judge said the chances of a revival were “very good.”
