Following on from last September’s other hour-long episode The Pandemic Special, The Vaccination Special will see the citizens of South Park attempting to secure their COVID-19 vaccines, though a militant group apparently has other plans.
A brief synopsis reads –
“The citizens of South ParQ are clamoring for the COVID-19 vaccine. A hilarious new militant group tries to stop the boys from getting their teacher vaccinated.”
Considering the capitalized “Q” in the synopsis, surely South Park will be ripping QAnon conspiracy theorists who believe that a secret cabal of Satan-worshipping, cannibalistic pedophiles are running a global child sex-trafficking ring and plotted against former US President Donald Trump while he was in office.
Speaking of Trump, the show has used Mr. Garrison as a substitute ever since he was elected president. Will the show have Mr. Garrison leave office and return to his usual self?
This special comes as fans await confirmation of the premiere date of season 24 of South Park, which has been delayed for the past year due to the ongoing coronavirus.
In other news, more South Park movies could be on the way. ViacomCBS’ Grant Gish expressed an interest in making more movies and specials with Stone and Parker, saying: –
“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.”
A full-length feature film, South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut, was released in cinemas in 1999.
South Park is currently renewed through to season 26 and has been the highest-rated cable comedy in primetime for six consecutive years.
Comedy Central will be airing the South ParQ Vaccination Special on March 10th.
