MTV to revive Beavis and Butthead

US cable network MTV is bringing back cult animated series Beavis and Butthead.

The Viacom-owned broadcaster is revamping the Mike Judge-created series, which stars two cartoon metalheads as they judge the latest pop videos.

The original series was cancelled in 1997 after it was made into a big screen feature, Beavis and Butthead Do America.

Judge is reportedly producing 30 new episodes of the series, set to launch next year.
