The long-running animated comedy from co-creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker will return with six episodes on Wednesday, Feb. 2 to celebrate its milestone premiere. Weekly episodes will then follow, for the first time since the last full season in 2019.
“To be halfway done with “South Park” is a great accomplishment-we can’t lie,” said co-creators Matt
Stone and Trey Parker.
The irreverent comedy has been renewed on Comedy Central through 2027 and will expand with a total of 14 original movies on Paramount+, in the co-creators’ massive deal with ViacomCBS.
Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, South Park has taken on a number of topics ranging from vaccines, Q-Anon and more with its specials. The first in 2020 was South Park’s ‘Pandemic Special,’ which marked the series’ best ratings in seven years.
