Comedy Central Locks up SOUTH PARK for 3 More
Fans of South Park will be able to tune in to Comedy Central for a while longer to get their regular dose of Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Cartman because the sometimes controversial, always funny animated hit has been locked in for three more seasons.
Trey Parker and Matt Stone probably didn’t realize how long-lived their comedy juggernaut would be when it debuted in 1997 but South Park keeps delivering the funny and will continue to do so with original episodes through 2016. Just in case 20 seasons doesn’t seem that impressive, consider the fact that The Simpsons is the only other animated series to stick around as long. There shouldn’t be any problem with the tone of the show changing, either, because Parker and Stone will continue to write, edit, and direct every episode.
All parties seem happy with the deal, with Comedy Central president Michele Ganeless saying, “the collective genius of Matt and Trey knows no bounds,” and Parker and Stone stating, “We love working there.”
Cartman and the gang lost their appeal to me for a while but the laughs are once again running on all cylinders. I still can’t figure out if South Park was in a slump or if I was but the hilarity is back and I’m looking forward to seeing what South Park will be offering for the next three years. Considering how Parker and Stone always use stories ripped straight from the headlines, and high-profile people can always be counted on to do dumb things, there should be plenty of laughs ahead for us.
