If Dave Willis wants to reboot the series, I think it could very much be a possibility, with the same animation format and voice actors as the original series rather than being a completely new project. It was lucky enough to run for nearly 15 years and had a massive cult following, so anything could happen.

Well honestly the series didn't end because of low ratings or heck even originally the creator's intent. It ended because Mike Lazzo cancelled the show feeling it had "run it's course". There are varying reports as to why he did this but one theory that IMHO holds a fair amount of validity is the fact the banned/blocked "Boston" episode (originally intended for the 2008 season) managed to leak in an unfinished state and it was an episode Mike Lazzo NEVER wanted to officially see the light of day and the fact it had made him want to end the show.

However Lazzo is no longer in charge of Adult Swim and despite ATHF being cancelled Dave still does Carl blurbs from time to time (having just done one for the graduating class of 2020 a few months back for instance) so it's not like he's totally forgotten the show. And honestly if something like 12 Oz Mouse could come back I see ATHF coming back especially once AS loses most of the other FOX related series and becomes more starved for content so I could see them relaunching some of their other series. ATHF you wouldn't need to reboot or anything; just give it a silly new title like they have the last few seasons but still have it have the same feel and honestly now that they've been away from it for awhile chance for the epiosdes to be more fresh then the last few seasons were. i mean it wouldn't be hard to really get the cast back as Willis obviously still with AS and Means is still around and though getting more VA work it wouldn't be hard to get Dana Snyder back especially as again he's on 12 Oz Mouse now so yeah I see the show coming back in some form this decade.

Adult Swim's style is random. IF they want to do it...it'll pop up and happen one day without a clue.

But...I think they've moved on from it and I look to Space Ghost as to the reasoning. The Space Ghost crew all were running other projects and getting AS started...even though it created the AS brand and they needed new content like a big brand like Space Ghost....they needed to move on.

Those guys are on to new projects, retired, & running Adult Swim.

Although...I'd love more Space Ghost.

I personally think they've done just about everything they can do with the characters. It's not like ATHF was The Venture Brothers, which ended with unfinished business. We got over a decade of adventures with the crew, and I'd argue that it overstayed its welcome after a certain point.

Maybe it can come back with a new special or spin-off like Harvey Birdman, but I don't see the need for a full revival.

RBG? Screw you, 2020.
For those of you upset over Steven Universe Future's Emmy loss, let me assure you that Emmys are worthless. David E Kelly, one of the the worst writers I've ever seen, and Murphy Brown, one of the the worst sitcoms I've ever seen, have shelves full of them, and David Lynch and Joss Whedon have none.
I also wish a happy 57th birthday to Dan Povenmire. He's worked on Rocko's Modern Life, Catdog, Family Guy, Hey Arnold, and SpongeBob. He also co-created Phineas And Ferb and Milo Murphy's Law.
I wish a happy 35th birthday to Mairghread Scott. She's worked on many projects like Ultimate Spiderman, Kaijudo, Transformers Rescue Bots, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Marvel Rising, Justice League Action, Wonder Woman Bloodlines, and more.
