TV's most thickheaded animated duo are “back and dumber than ever” for a whole new season of stupid escapades and music video critiquing, as Beavis and Butt-Head return to the small screen. A staple of early '90s MTV, King of the Hill creator Mike Judge's most famous comedy characters have been revived again, three decades after first hitting the small screen to confound common sense and torment each other once more. Make sure you know how to watch Mike Judge’s Beavis and Butt-Head from abroad with the help of a VPN.

Having made their comeback earlier this summer in the feature-length Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe, the new series sees the pair return to their more familiar format of short cartoon adventures, interspersed with the pair's musings on the day's pop music and culture.
Still sporting Metallica and AC/DC T-shirts, the pair are set to cast judgement on videos by the likes of boy bands CNCO and BTS and country star Cale Dodds, while a move with the current times will also see the pair unintelligently discussing clips from likes of YouTubers like Gibi ASMR.
Hippie teacher Mr. Van Driessen returns, while it seems inconceivable that Beavis' TP-loving alter-ego Cornholio won't make an appearance in a set of new adventures that sees them try to disastrously navigate escape rooms, bee-keeping and fire.
So will the new series "rock", or will you be left crying "this sucks, change it"? Follow our guide below for how to watch Beavis and Butt-Head online wherever you are.
