brilliant episode! Basically summarized everything from the last six months.
The boys are back in South Park, and they’ll be there for awhile.
“South Park” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have signed a 6-year deal with ViacomCBS through 2027, giving cable’s longest-running scripted show “an unprecedented 30th season,” Comedy Central announced Thursday.
In addition to the new seasons, the deal also includes 14 spinoff movies for ViacomCBS’ Paramount+ streamer.
“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.
The “Book of Mormon” co-creators skipped a new season of the animated series, which premiered 24 years ago next week, amid the pandemic in 2020 but did release “The Pandemic Special,” and this year, the “South ParQ Vaccination Special.”
“Matt and Trey are world-class creatives who brilliantly use their outrageous humor to skewer the absurdities of our culture and we are excited to expand and deepen our long relationship with them to help fuel Paramount+ and Comedy Central,” Chris McCarthy, president and CEO of MTV Entertainment and CCO of Adult Animation at Paramount+, said in the release.
McCarthy noted that “franchising marquee content ... is at the heart of our strategy to continue growing Paramount+.”
The $900 million deal is one of television’s largest-ever deals, Bloomberg report
Any chance of a South Park game to wrap up the masterful Trilogy?
Yep, it includes it.Here's to hoping that $900m deal includes it!
It was announced this week on Bloomberg that the South Park duo of Trey Parker and Matt Stone had signed a huge $900 million deal with Paramount and ViacomCBS to bring a lot of content to their Paramount+ streaming service – including a lot of South Park, such as a new movie, six more seasons of the show, a whopping 14 spin-off features, and “a 3D video game”.
“We do whatever we want, and they are pretty supportive of it,” Matt Stone said of their current situation with South Park. “We’re the luckiest guys in TV in that way.” There was no other information regarding the game in the Bloomberg article, other than that Parker and Stone are financing it themselves – so will likely be even more heavily involved than they were previously.
