Fox Not Renewing ‘King of the Hill’

Fox isn't renewing its U.S. animated series "King of the Hill" past its current 13th season, The Hollywood Reporter said.

Created by Greg Daniels and Mike Judge, the Texas-set cartoon sit-com features the voice talents of Kathy Najimy, Pamela Adlon, Brittany Murphy, Tom Petty, Johnny Hardwick and Stephen Root.

Daniels is now the showrunner of the U.S. version of "The Office" and Judge is working on a new animated series called "The Goode Family."

Fox picked up an additional 13 episodes of "Hill" last April and those are now wrapping production, the entertainment industry trade newspaper said.
