Everybody's favorite propane and propane accessories salesman may be returning to the small screen.

According to a report by Variety, Dana Walden, Chairman and CEO of Fox Television Group, said: "We have had preliminary conversations with Greg [Daniels] and Mike [Judge]. Given what's going on in the country, (Judge and Daniels) had a point of view about how these characters would respond".

King Of The Hill premiered in 1997 and ran for 13 seasons before concluding in 2009. "But again, it was one meeting and I hope to revisit it", Walden said.

The meeting, Walden said, took place more than two months ago and was simply "exploratory". The series revolved around the middle-class Hill family in Arlen, Texas, and touched on their everyday life and incorporated Judge's political humor. "Is there potential in a future?' And they were both excited about it, but they're working on a lot of different things individually, so it's about finding time". It featured voice actors Kathy Najimy (Peggy Hill), Pamela Adlon (Bobby), Stephen Root (Bill Dauterive), Johnny Hardwick (Dale Gribble) the late Brittany Murphy (Luanne Platter). Much of it seems to rest on Judge and Daniels, both of whom are busy with multiple other projects.

For his part, Daniels is now an exec producer and showrunner on TBS' alien comedy People of Earth.

Every movie is a sequel, vinyl sales are on the rise and everybody wants their favorite shows to come back.

Fox cancelled the show in 2008 and moved Seth MacFarlane's "Family Guy" spinoff "The Cleveland Show" into its timeslot. Perhaps a revival could encourage viewers on both sides of the fence to do the same.
