Comedy Central Renews ‘South Park’ for Three More Seasons
Comedy Central mainstay South Park is sticking around through at least 2019. According to Variety, the network has officially ordered 30 more episodes of Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s animated series, which will take the show past the 300-episode mark and into its 23rd season through 2019.
“Nearly two decades later, South Park today remains as important and influential as any series on any platform and has become one of the most recognizable brands to ever come out of television,” said exec Doug Herzog on the news. Parker and Stone added: “We love working for Doug and with everyone at Comedy Central. They’ve given us an insane level of artistic and creative freedom for almost 20 years. They walk the walk.” Considering Parker and Stone have said they won’t stop making South Park until Comedy Central cancels it, it looks like we don’t have to worry about Stan, Kyle, Kenny, and Cartman leaving us anytime soon.
