The deal extends the adventures of Stan, Kyle, Kenny, and Cartman through a 30th season. However, the more notable news may be what it means to ViacomCBS’ streaming endeavors.
The company also announced Thursday that the new deal will bring 14 original “South Park” films to ViacomCBS’ newly rebranded streaming service, Paramount+. Two of those films will debut in 2021.
“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,” Parker and Stone said in a statement.
“South Park,” which launched in 1997, is one of ViacomCBS’ most striking franchises.
The series, which satirizes culture via the profane world of its young main characters, has always been a firebrand. Its take-no-prisoners approach has earned it a loyal audience and many awards over its long run.
“South Park” is an important extension of that strategy.
