SAN DIEGO (AP) - Nearly two decades after their heyday, Beavis and Butthead are coming back.

Creator Mike Judge says the ever adolescent, trash-talking duo will return to MTV in the fall.

Judge came to Comic-Con to talk about the reboot of his beloved animated characters and offer 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.

Comic-Con continues through Sunday.
