South Park renewed by Comedy Central through 2019
The boys and their bizarro adventures will stick around through 2019.
Comedy Central announced that it has closed a new pact with Trey Parker and Matt Stone to keep South Park on the network through 2019.
The deal involves three more seasons, or 30 more episodes – which would make it the longest-running primetime scripted series in cable. By 2019, the duo will have made 304 episodes for Comedy Central.
Parker and Stone will continue to write, direct and edit every episode of the show – a gig they’ve enjoyed since 1997.
The 19th season of the show will begin Sept. 16.
“Nearly two decades later, South Park today remains as important and influential as any series on any platform and has become one of the most recognizable brands to ever come out of television,” said Viacom Music and Entertainment Group President Doug Herzog.
