King of the Hill Proper Finale

King of the Hill was canceled twice by FOX, and it has finally be canceled for good (to make space for The Cleveland Show), but didn't have a proper series finale. On April 30, 2009 it was announced that Fox ordered at least two more episodes to give the show a proper finale. The show's fourteenth season was supposed to air sometime in the 2009-2010 season, but FOX later announced that they would not air the episodes, instead the episodes would go into the syndicated run. Another statement announced on August 10, 2009, that the network will air a one hour series finale on September 13, 2009. The two episodes are called "The Boy Can't Help It" and "The Honeymooners" and are being promoted as the Texas-Sized Series Finale. It is unlikely these episodes will be repeated on FOX again, but thank god we have Adult Swim and DVD.

The last episode aired was about Canadians trading houses with Boomhower for the summer. Now, it is said 20th Century Fox Television initially ordered 13 production episodes, but decided to keep the show in production for four additional episodes. The FOX network, however, confirmed it will not air these episodes in primetime opting instead for syndication. There is a possibility that the episodes may air first on Adult Swim. I love this show and it is a great show.
