Greg Daniels and Mike Judge’s animated series King of the Hill might be making a comeback at Fox. According to TVLine, the network has had “preliminary conversations” with Judge and Daniels about possibly reviving the show, which originally ran for 13 seasons on the network from 1997 to 2009. Here’s what Fox exec Dana Walden said on the possible revival:

“We have had preliminary conversations with Greg and Mike,” Walden said. “I would like to explore that [further] with Mike and Greg,” Walden added. “Given what’s going on in the country [under President Trump], I think they have a point of view about how those characters would respond. But it was one meeting. I hope to revisit it.”

Walden was quick to note that both Daniels and Judge “are very busy,” and stressed that the meeting was “a first, exploratory [conversation]…. It’s about finding time [to do it].”

King of the Hill isn’t the only comedy a major network has expressed interest in reviving this month. Just last week, NBC exec Bob Greenblatt pointed to The Office and 30 Rock as two comedies he’s interested in bringing back in some form. “We often talk about The Office, I’ve talked to Greg four times over the past few years. It’s always, ‘maybe some day but not now,’” he said. “There is certainly an open invitation but we don’t have anything happening right now. If he wants to do it, I would do it.”
