Grandstaff originated the role of Daria Morgendorffer in the original iteration of Beavis and Butt-Head, which premiered on MTV in 1993. Grandstaff reprized her role for the spin-off series Daria, which itself ran on MTV for five seasons and two television films from 1997 to 2002. Until now, the second of these two films — Is It College Yet? — marked Grandstaff’s final performance as Daria. The character did briefly appear in the 2022 Paramount+ film Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe, though her cameo was a non-speaking one.

The Beavis and Butt-Head universe lives on

Following its initial premiere in 1993, MTV’s Beavis and Butt-Head went on to run for seven seasons through 1997. Additionally, a theatrically-released feature film titled Beavis and Butt-Head Do America bowed in 1996. After 14 years off the air, MTV revived Beavis and Butt-Head for an eighth season in 2011. Paramount+ brought the the series back once more in 2022, re-christening it “Mike Judge’s Beavis and Butt-Head.” The revival kicked off with the aforementioned Do the Universe, with the first full new season dropping shortly after.

What’s more, the spin-off Daria franchise is also do for a comeback. An animated film centering on Daria character Jodie Landon is currently in the works. The revival project was previously being developed as a Comedy Central series (much like Mike Judge’s Beavis and Butt-Head) before being reworked into a feature. Tracee Ellis Ross will voice Jodie in the film, taking over the role from original actor Jessica Cydnee Jackson.
