Adult Swim Adds ‘King of the Hill’
While too expensive to pickup new episodes, Cartoon Network has purchased the off-network rights to King of the Hill and will add it to their Adult swim programming. As a result, Adult Swim will now be expanded by an hour, beginning at 10 p.m. and running through till 6 a.m. seven days a week.
The arrival of the animated series will be in January according to Variety. The mix of original and off-network programming has skewed towards older teens and young adults since it debuted in 2005. All 13 seasons’ worth of episodes will be part of the deal as it joins Family Guy, also from Fox.
Fox recently announced King‘s cancellation and ABC is reportedly considering picking up the show.
