Justin Bieber wasn’t joking a few months back when he revealed “Beavis and Butthead” would be returning to TV.

The show’s creator Mike Judge confirmed the news at Comic-Con 2011 in San Diego last week and offered a peek at the new season, which is set to premiere in October.

In their new incarnation, the two perennial teens — still wearing their AC/DC and Metallica shirts — riff on music videos, YouTube submissions and MTV shows such as “Jersey Shore” and “Teen Cribs.”

“They’re also watching UFC fights,” Judge says.

The 48-year-old writer, who also voices many of his characters, says that besides Beavis and Butthead, he hopes to tackle live-action dramas in his creative future.
