Looks like it’s the end of the line for the Fox animated comedy series King of the Hill. While Fox did choose to pick the series up for an additional thirteen episodes, which are currently wrapping production, the network has opted not to continue the series any further than that.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series’ thirteenth season will be it’s last. King of the Hill, which premiered in 1997 was created by Greg Daniels (who has since moved on to creating The Office) and Beavis and Butthead mastermind Mike Judge, who has also drifted away from Hill and is now working on another TV project (the upcoming ABC series The Goode Family).
I suppose with Fox’s upcoming new animated series, Sit Down, Shut Up and the Family Guy spinoff The Cleveland Show, the network may have felt they’d outgrown King of the Hill or perhaps the viewers did.
