South Park Extended for 6 More Seasons & 14 Movies

South Park is never going away. Six more seasons and 14 movies are on their way from Trey Parker and Matt Stone who are $900 million richer.

South Park Classmates Outside Boys

As long as Matt Stone and Trey Parker don’t blow all of their new $900 million windfall on something crazy like a restaurant chain, we’re rather excited to hear that the creators of South Park have just signed a new deal with MTV Entertainment Studios that will extend the show until 2027 and force us to watch 14 new South Park movies.

Wait. What?

This new and expansive deal with MTV Entertainment Studios encompasses the following distribution package.

  • Paramount+

    14 South Park original made-for-streaming movies – two for 2021 
  • Comedy Central channel

    South Park series through Season 30

We’re thrilled to have 6 more seasons but 14 movies seem like overkill.

What makes South Park so worthwhile is that Stone and Parker have refused from the show’s inception to bend to corporate demands or leave any subject matter unscathed. The woke generation are about to get dragged and those of us who were their targets for almost 20 years are going to sit back and watch Eric, Stan, Kenny, and Kyle eviscerate all sides with a sense of joy. Popcorn anyone? Scotch?

“Matt and Trey are world-class creatives who brilliantly use their outrageous humor to skewer the absurdities of our culture and we are excited to expand and deepen our long relationship with them to help fuel Paramount+ and Comedy Central,” said Chris McCarthy, President/CEO -MTV Entertainment & CCO/Adult Animation – Paramount+. “Franchising marquee content like South Park and developing new IP with tremendous talent like Matt and Trey, is at the heart of our strategy to continue growing Paramount+.”

“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,” said Parker and Stone. “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 episodes but now we can also try out new formats. It’s great to have partners who will always take a chance with us.” 

Their South ParQ Vaccination Special ranked as the #1 cable telecast of the year with nearly 3.5M total viewers across the night and The Pandemic Special, reigned as cable’s #1 scripted telecast of 2020.

In addition, South Park received its 19th Emmy nomination with a nod for The Pandemic Special in the Outstanding Animated Program category. The series has earned five Emmy Awards to date and a George Foster Peabody Award. 

The show launched on August 13, 1997. Trey Parker and Matt Stone are the co-creators of the Emmy® and Peabody® Award-winning South Park. Parker, Stone, Anne Garefino and Frank C. Agnone II are the Executive Producers of South Park. Eric Stough, Adrien Beard, Bruce Howell and Vernon Chatman are Producers. Chris Brion is the Creative Director of South Park Digital Studios.

Where to watch: Stream all episodes via Paramount+ (try it free). Plans start at $4.99/month.
