It's Official: King of the Hill Announces Series Finale
King of the Hill seemed poised to come to an unceremonious end last season when the finale wrapped up without fanfare -- despite persistent rumors that the show was slated for cancellation. Last week at the Television Critics Association (TCA) Press Tour, FOX executives made it official by announcing that two of the six final episodes will air back-to-back on September 13.

King of the Hill stayin' on top

While The Simpsons and Family Guy get the lion's share of attention for animated programs at Fox, another one just keeps chugging along.

King of the Hill fills the gap between the two previously mentioned 'toons, but it's become much more than just the half-hour between Simpsons and Family Guy. The show has been running for a dozen seasons, and it will be back for lucky number 13.

Today, Fox announced that it has picked up the comedy for another season. The network has called for 13 more episodes.

King of the Hill follows a family of Texans led by the bumbling Hank Hill, and has a list of celebrity guests that would almost make The Simpsons jealous. The show is produced by a pair that knows its comedy: Mike Judge (Beavis and Butthead) and Greg Daniels (The ...

Sit Down, Shut Up shoved out

With a voice cast that boasts Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Kristen Chenoweth and several other big names, and a showrunner with Arrested Development on his resumé, Fox had high hopes for its new animated comedy Sit Down, Shut Up. Well, looks like those hopes are dashed.

Goode times for Mike Judge

ABC is venturing into prime-time animation with The Goode Family, a comedy from King of the Hill cocreator Mike Judge.

The network has handed out a 13-episode commitment to Goode, which Judge created with John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky.

Goode revolves around a family obsessed with doing the "right" thing environmentally, politically, or socially. But its efforts often have unintended comedic consequences.

Judge will voice the father and other characters on the series. He also voices two characters on Fox's Hill and voiced most of the characters on the earlier hit animated comedy he created, MTV's Beavis and Butt-head.

Goode marks ABC's first animated series since Clerks, which had a short run in summer 2000.

The project hails from indie production company Media Rights Capital, which has signed an interim agreement with the striking Writers Guild of America, allowing it to use union writers.

Fox still drawn to King and Simpsons

Fox is loading up on animated comedies The Simpsons and King of the Hill.

The network has ordered two more seasons of The Simpsons, its 18th and 19th, and one more of King of the Hill, the show's 11th.

The two-year renewal for The Simpsons, the longest-running primetime entertainment series on the air, guarantees it will be on the air at least through the 2007-08 season, during which the show will hit its 400th episode.

The show's principal voice cast, which includes Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner, Nancy Cartwright, Yeardley Smith, and Hank Azaria, who threatened to go on strike a few years ago until they got better deals, are all said to be locked in for the duration of the new pact.

After a two-month hiatus, production on King of the Hill recently resumed after new deals were sealed with principal behind-the-scenes talent, including showrunners/executive producers John ...

Dale Gribble

Hank is a true Texan, who loves everything Texas, and hates most things non-Texan. He is a propane gas salesman in the fictional town Arlen, Texas. Hank is often besieged by the idiosyncrasies of society and often has to be the "hero". He has a wife Peggy who starts off as a Substitute Spanish Teacher, but picks up other jobs along the way, a son Bobby, who seems to be the polar opposite of Hank, and a live-in (for the first few seasons) niece-in-law Luanne Platter, who at times can be an airhead. Hank spends a great deal of time in front of his fence drinking beer with his odd friends, divorcee military barber Bill Dauterive, paranoid Dale Gribble (with an obsession with Government conspiracy theories) and gibberish spouting Boomhauer.
