Grandstaff created the role of Daria Morgendorffer in the original version of Beavis and Butt-Head, which premiered on MTV in 1993. Grandstaff reprized her role in the spin-off series Daria, which ran for five seasons and two made-for-TV movies on MTV from 1997 to 2002. So far, the second of those two movies – Is It College Yet? – marked Grandstaff’s last appearance as Daria. The character appeared briefly in the 2022 Paramount+ film Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe, although her cameo appearance was a non-speaking one.
The universe of Beavis and Butt-Head lives on
After its first premiere in 1993, “Beavis and Butt-Head Do America” ran on MTV for seven seasons through 1997. A feature film entitled “Beavis and Butt-Head Do America” was also released in 1996. After a 14-year hiatus, MTV revived “Beavis and Butt-Head” for an eighth season in 2011. Paramount+ brought the series back again in 2022 and retitled it Mike Judge’s Beavis and Butt-Head. The revival began with the aforementioned Do the Universe, followed shortly after by the release of the first full new season.
In addition, the spin-off franchise Daria is also poised for a comeback. An animated film about the Daria character Jodie Landon is currently in the works. The revival project was previously developed as a Comedy Central series (similar to Mike Judge’s Beavis and Butt-Head) before being adapted into a feature film. Tracee Ellis Ross will voice Jodie in the film and take on the role of original actress Jessica Cydnee Jackson.
