King of the Hill is another animation hit from Beavis and Butthead creator Mike Judge, who also voices the starring character Hank Hill, a propane gas salesman in the fictional town Arlen, Texas. Hank is often besieged by the idiosyncrasies of society, but he finds (some) serenity in his home-life with his wife, substitute Spanish teacher Peggy, his awkward son Bobby and his live-in niece-in-law Luanne Platter. Adding flavor to the ordinary dish the series serves are Hank's friends, divorcee military barber Bill Dauterive, paranoid Dale Gribble (with an obsession with Government conspiracy theories) and gibberish spouting Boomhauer.On April 4th 2008, FOX renewed the series for a 13th season.
FOX has aired 253 of the 255 total episodes after the 13th season wrapped on May 17, leaving two episodes still yet to air. It's understood however that producer 20th Century Fox Television kept the show in production for four additional episodes (DABE14-DABE17) bringing its actual total to 259. The network nevertheless has yet to license those extra episodes, meaning as few as two or as many as six could still air. King of the Hill in Canada; Sundays @ 7 PM E/P on Global.
Repeats can be seen on FX.King of the Hill in the USA: Sundays @ 8:30 on FOX.
