MTV has announced that their popular animated series, South Park, is being renewed by Comedy Central. Surprisingly, the show has been streaming for 24 years. It’ll run through its 30th season in 2027. This new deal comes in the form of a partnership with ViacomCBS.
Additionally, Paramount+ has ordered 14 South Park-themed movies. They’ll be on air for the next 6 years. Two of them will debut in 2 years.
“Comedy Central has been our home for 25 years, and we’re really happy that they’ve made a commitment to us for the next 75 years,” Parker and Stone said in a statement.
“When we came to ViacomCBS with a different way to produce the show during the pandemic, Chris (McCarthy), Nina (Diaz), Keyes (Hill-Edgar), and Tanya (Giles) were immediately supportive and enabled us to try something new that turned out to be really well received. We can’t wait to get back to doing traditional South Park episodes, but we can try out new formats now. It’s great to have partners who will always take a chance with us.”
South Park is co-created and executive produced by Matt Stone and Trey Parker. Moreover, it’s executive produced by Anne Garefino and Frank C. Agnone II. It features the voices of Parker, Stone, April Stewart, and Mona Marshall. The show first hit screens in 1997.
