The King returns


“King of the Hill” will continue its long run. Fox has ordered a 13th season of the animated series depicting the life and times of Hank Hill, his family and his neighbors in the fictional town of Arlen, TX.

Hank (voiced by Mike Judge) is a hard-working, loyal family man and proud Texan whose Rock of Gibraltar is his wife, Peggy (Kathy Najimy). Peggy thinks of herself as a true Renaissance woman: realtor, substitute Spanish teacher, journalist, fast-pitch softball hurler, local Boggle champion and notary public. Hank and Peggy’s pride and joy is their 13-year-old son, Bobby (Pamela Adlon). Rounding out the family is Hank’s 18-year-old niece, Luanne (Brittany Murphy), who recently got married to Lucky (Tom Petty). Hank is the undisputed alpha male among his neighborhood buddies, Dale (Johnny Hardwick), Bill (Stephen Root) and Boomhauer (Judge).

King of the Hill received an Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program in 1999. Mike Judge and Greg Daniels are co-creators/executive producers. John Altschuler, Dave Krinsky, Michael Rotenberg, Howard Klein, Jim Dauterive and Garland Testa are executive producers of King of the Hill, which is a 20th Century Fox Television Production in association with Deedle-Dee Productions, Judgemental Films and 3 Arts Entertainment.
