Beavis and Butt-Head Travel to 2022 in Paramount+ Trailer

Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe premieres June 23, with a revival series to follow.
  • The '90s are here again, and Beavis and Butt-Head are back.

    Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe, a new animated feature film based on the '90s MTV series, is coming Paramount+ later this month.

    In the just-released trailer, Beavis and Butt-Head are on a space mission with NASA in 1998, the year after the original series ended. Unsurprisingly, they ruin the mission and end up going through a black hole, plunging them forward in time to 2022, where they are being sought after by the NSA, the governor of Texas, and an intelligent version of themselves from a parallel universe. Mike Judge wrote and directed the film and reprises his original roles, voicing both Beavis and Butt-Head.

    The original series, which ran for seven seasons from 1993 to 1997, followed teenage best friends Beavis and Butt-Head as they watch music videos and get involved in silly schemes. The MTV show also led to the popular spinoff series Daria.

    Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe debuts June 23 on Paramount+. A sneak peek of the film will be shown at the MTV Movie and TV Awards on Sunday. The complete original series will also be released on Paramount+ in the coming months, with a new revival to be released by the end of the year.

    Deena ElGenaidi's writing has been featured in Nylon, MTV News, Insider, The AV Club, and more. You can follow her on Twitter @deenaelg.
