Considering 'South Park's amazing length and cultural relevance, fans have endured long periods of speculation over when its increasingly prolific creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker would hang up their parkas, and finally close the doors on the long-running series. As the series heads into a 17th season, and Parker and Stone prepare the launch of their own studio, might 'South Park's days be coming to an end? Learn when season 17 premieres and for how many episodes inside!
If nothing else, 'South Park' will always be known for its lightning quick turn-around when it comes to production, often parodying topical events mere days after they occur. This was never more clear than 2008's "About Last Night...," which parodied the election results the night before, but has 'South Park' gotten even faster in recent years? Given that the next episode will be titled "Obama Wins!," 'South Park' seems to have predicted the decision for us! So what does the first clip reveal?
The majority of good TV may have been postponed for the night on account of that dastardly hurricane everyone keeps talking about, but hopefully the matter will be swept under the rug by Wednesday night for an all-new 'South Park!' Last week brilliantly channeled 'The Shining' as Stan endured "A Nightmare On Facetime," but what will the latest outing bring? How will Matt and Trey tackle the Lance Armstrong issue in "A Scause For Applause?"
While 'South Park's unfortunate fall air dates mean that the long-running Comedy Central series arrives too late to effectively parody 'The Avengers,' at the very least upcoming episode "A Nightmare on Facetime" will pay the Marvel blockbuster homage. The boys look to dress as the iconic superhero tam for Halloween, only to find that Stan can't join them as Captain America, and instead has to send an iPad! So what Halloween hijinks does the latest clip from Wednesday's "A Nightmare On Facetime" scare up?
We're only three episodes into the second half of 'South Park's sixteenth season, having parodied Bane, Honey Boo-Boo and the NFL, so how long could it really be before we got a Butters-centric episode? Thankfully not long, as this Wednedsay will see young Mr. Stotch off on yet another whirlwind adventure, as he learns a shocking secret of his origins. What terrible truth does Butters uncover in the newest clip from "Going Native," and who will be along for the ride?
Two episodes in, and already 'South Park' seems to have reclaimed a bit of magic in the second half of its 16th season. Last week brought us the inspired "Raising the Bar," adding a dash of James Cameron and his wonderful theme song into the mix, while the week prior managed to keep a sarcastic tone near of the entire half-hour through "Sarcastaball." So, can "Insecurity" keep the streak going? Watch the new clip to find out!
The moment we knew that 'South Park' would be taking on the obese in wednesdays' latest episode "Raising the Bar," it was inevitable that hte long-running Comedy Central satire would find some way ot work in America's newest sweethearts, Honey Boo-Boo and her cringe-inducing TLC family. But, with Eric Cartman the only big-boned character 'round these parts, how will Eric react to having the limelight shifted off of him?
'South Park' may be old, but last week's "Sarcastaball" proved that the series can still turn on a dime and beat a dead horse joke well into the ground, taking on the recent NFL controversy in a way that kept fans laughing uncomfortably nearly the entire episode. Now, as the show's 16th season gets ready to roll along with its sophomore effort, what topics are left to cover? Might it be time to turn the lens inward, as the newest clip from "Raising the Bar" reveals?
For all the ups and downs of last night's Emmy broadcast, from 'Mad Men's' epic shutout, to 'Homeland' and 'Modern Family's' sweeping victories, one thought certainly crossed our minds: where's 'South Park'? Now preparing to pick up its 16th season on Comedy Central, have Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Cartman fallen so far from the public zeitgeist? Check out the new clip from midseason premiere "Sarcastaball" to see if they get it back!
