South Park - Unfulfilled

South Park is set to run at least another three years, as it has received a three-season renewal from Comedy Central. Comedy Central announced on Thursday that the long-running animated series has been picked up for its 24, 25th, and 26th seasons that will take it through 2022.

The show is set to premiere season 23, which will feature the show’s 300th episode, on September 25th. The show remains one of the post popular comedies on the air, topping cable comedies in the 18 – 49 demographic with a 0.5 and 861,000 viewers per episode.

“South Park is the greatest comedy in the history of television, unmatched in its satirical strength and cultural relevancy and it shows no signs of slowing down,” said Kent Alterman, President of Comedy Central, Paramount Network and TV Land. “If humanity is still intact in 1000 years, historians will see the most transcendent artists of our era as The Beatles, Muhammed Ali, and Matt and Trey. We’ll do as many seasons as they would like.”

“Apparently, our efforts to get our own show cancelled have fallen short,” said Parker and Stone. “Luckily, we love Comedy Central and Kent and our staff so we are looking forward to new cancellation opportunities in the next few years.”
