FOX just can't seem to decide if they want King Of The Hill
Created by Mike Judge and Greg Daniels, King Of The Hill
centers around the Hills, a blue-collar family living in Texas. The animated series debuted on January 12, 1997 and features the voice talents of Mike Judge, Kathy Najimy, Pamela Adlon, Johnny Hardwick, Stephen Root, Brittany Murphy, Toby Huss, David Herman, Ashley Gardner, Lauren Tom, Tom Petty, Breckin Meyer, Jonathan Joss, and Phil Hendrie.
Back in 2005, the show was set to be cancelled but execs changed their minds when the ratings went up and the Hill family stuck around for a few more seasons.
Last October, FOX announced that they were officially cancelling the animated sitcom. Though there were still several new episodes left , the April 12th episode was initially described as the animated sitcom's series finale. Several original episodes aired after that.
It was later confirmed that there were still six original episodes left. FOX had already licensed two of them and the network had the option to license the remaining four. FOX pulled the show completely in late July, an indication that it was gone for good.
Last week, at the Television Critic's Summer Press Tour, FOX's network president, Kevin Reilly, said that it was unlikely that the network would be airing any more new episodes of King of the Hill.
