Hour-Long Special Premieres Ths Month

The residents of South Park will return at the end of this month with a new hour-long special tackling the coronavirus pandemic.

The episode, titled The Pandemic Special, will mark the start of the show’s 24th season, and it looks like Cartman is determined to not return to school.

Comedy Central’s synopsis reveals –

“Randy comes to terms with his role in the COVID-19 outbreak as the on-going pandemic presents continued challenges to the citizens of South Park. The kids happily head back to school but nothing resembles the normal that they once knew; not their teachers, not their homeroom, not even Eric Cartman.”

The new episode comes after it was revealed that a few more South Park movies could be on the way. Last month, Grant Gish, ViacomCBS Entertainment new VP of adult animation, has expressed an interest in making more movies and specials with Matt Stone and Trey Parker –

“As long as you’re doing something new, and that could be anything from a new style to a new tone to a new voice coming from a specific writer, I think it can work”

The South Park Pandemic Special will air on Comedy Central on September 30th.
