How Many Episodes Of Beavis & Butthead There Are (& When It Ends)

Mike Judge's Beavis and Butt-Head is the long-awaited revival of the MTV classic that will be coming to Paramount+, but the number of episodes in the new season is yet to be revealed. While most shows have consistent episode counts, Beavis and Butt-Head's episodes per season vary wildly, adding to the confusion around the revival. However, by looking at past seasons, some estimates can be made regarding how many episodes will be in Mike Judge's Beavis and Butt-Head and when the show will end.

Starting in 1993, Beavis and Butt-Head follows two crude high schoolers living life in the wild world created by Mike Judge. The original series lasted 7 seasons, ending in 1997, before being revived for one more season in 2011. Once again, Beavis and Butt-Head season 8 ended the series when it was not picked up, with the iconic duo not returning until the Paramount+ film Beavis and Butt-Head Do The Universe. Due to the long-lasting popularity of the original series and its films, Beavis and Butt-Head has once again been revived for a ninth season on Paramount+.

How Many Episodes Of Mike Judge’s Beavis and Butt-Head There Are

Paramount+ hasn't yet confirmed an episode count for Mike Judge's Beavis and Butt-Head, with only four episodes being announced with more promised to come. However, some guesses can be made based on previous seasons. While season 1 only ran for 4 episodes, the rest of the original seasons had differing episode counts, with the lowest being season 6 at 20 episodes and the highest being season 5 at 50 episodes. So, if season 9 stays in line with the original run, Mike Judge's Beavis and Butt-Head could have somewhere between 20 and 50 episodes - a lot for modern streaming series. On the other hand, the first of the modern Beavis and Butt-Head reboots only lasted 28 episodes, which could be a sign that the newest revival may end up with a similar episode count. Nothing yet is confirmed, but if the episode count for Mike Judge's Beavis and Butt-Head falls anywhere within this range, that means there will be a lot of the show to come.

Mike Judge's Beavis and Butt-Head, aka season 9, will be streaming exclusively on Paramount+, with the first four episodes having released on August 4. The streaming service also contains all previous seasons of Beavis and Butt-Head, as well as both movies based on the series. Season 10 of the show has already been confirmed, along with other future spin-offs and specials, so season 9 will be far from the end of Beavis and Butt-Head.

Since the final episode count isn't public knowledge yet, there are a lot of factors that could play into when the new season of Beavis and Butt-Head will be ending. Since the first four episodes were all released at once, it is likely that Paramount+ will continue with the pattern of releasing multiple episodes per week. However, nobody knows if they will continue doing 4 episodes, or if it could be knocked down to less per week. The possibilities regarding episode counts and episodes per week lead to a lot of speculation, but it is entirely possible that the new Beavis and Butt-Head finale will come out months after it started, should a slower episode release schedule be planned.
