South Park debuted on Comedy Central in 1997 and follows the lives of Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny as they live their lives in the always eventful midwestern town of South Park, CO. The crude, brash nature of the show in satirizing cultural events was controversial at first and continues to be but it has endured itself to a legion of fans that have it as one of the longest-running shows of any kind of all time.
“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 South Park episodes but now we can also try out new formats. It’s great to have partners who will always take a chance with us.”
