South Park will kick off a landmark 20th season this coming fall, and as such, no better home than Comic-Con 2016 would help celebrate Matt and Trey’s creations in style. Comedy Central has set full panel plans for South Park, along with a “South Park 20 Experience,” interactive exhibits, video games and more.
South Park long ago put to rest notions of an imminent end with a three-season renewal through 2019, but it bears thought if video games like The Stick of Truth or The Fractured But Whole represent an enduring step for the franchise. Creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker wonder this as well, pointing to games as a potential “future of South Park,” noting they’ve still kicked around a few movie ideas.
When you’ve five Emmys, four Tonys, one Grammy and was one Phil Collins song away from an Oscar that would’ve made you one of only 13 people to have an EGOT, what else is left to do? For South Park creator Trey Parker, you voice the bad guy in Despicable Me 3
South Park has grown consistent enough as of its nineteenth season to not expect too many surprises, and while Matt Stone and Trey Parker have planned through at least 2019 seasons, the landmark 20th season already has an eye on the fall. Comedy Central has confirmed a September premiere date for the two-decade milestone.
Ever one to steer into topical controversy within a week of its airing, South Park will pull out all the stops on gun control with this week’s nineteenth season finale “PC Principal Final Justice.” The horror of a politically correct South Park infested with ads will finally come to a close, but judging by the first clip, no one may be left standing to enjoy it.
The nineteenth season of South Park hasn’t been as politically charged in its last few outings, even as the revered Comedy Central cartoon continues its experiment with PC culture and continuity, but this Wednesday will land right back in the hot seat. Following Donald Trump, body shaming and yaoi, South Park will next take on issues of police brutality for Wednesday’s “Naughty Ninjas.”
South Park managed to miss out on so much ripe material over the course of 2015, it wasn’t any wonder last week’s premiere split the bill between Caitlyn Jenner, Deflategate and PC culture. Now, our first look at Wednesday’s followup “Where My Country Gone?” tackles the orange-skinned elephant in the room, as the boys explore immigration. Again.
The infamously-short lead time on new South Park episodes results in advance promos lacking footage until a few days out, but with only days to go until the Season 19 premiere, Matt Stone and Trey Parker have at least something to tide fans over. Check out the full “trailer” for South Park’s Wednesday premiere, and find out what subject the boys tackle in the premiere.
