Published Sep 12, 2019With South Park only getting better with age, it makes total sense that Comedy Central has just renewed the series for three more seasons.
The network made the announcement this morning, confirming the three-season, 30-episode deal with Trey Parker and Matt Stone. It comes just ahead on South Park's Season 23 premiere, which is on September 25. This will take the series past its impressive 300th episode milestone.
"South Park is the greatest comedy in the history of television, unmatched in its satirical strength and cultural relevancy and it shows no signs of slowing down," said Comedy Central president Kent Alterman. "If humanity is still intact in 1,000 years, historians will see the most transcendent artists of our era as the Beatles, Muhammed Ali, and Matt and Trey. We'll do as many seasons as they would like."
In a joint statement, Parker and Stone added: "Apparently, our efforts to get our own show cancelled have fallen short. Luckily, we love Comedy Central and Kent and our staff so we are looking forward to new cancellation opportunities in the next few years."
At this point, plot details of Season 23 remain vague, so you'll have to tune in on September 25.
