South Park Tackling Coronavirus With Hourlong Pandemic Special

South Park Tackling Coronavirus With Hourlong Pandemic Special”

Leave it to South Park to give us some much-needed humor during a pandemic. Check out the first trailer and get more details below.

We all expect South Park to drop some sort of timely commentary on whatever is happening in the world and COVID-19 is no different.

Series creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone will of course write and executive produce the special.

For Kyle, Stan, Cartman and Kenny the quartet are having to adjust to the new normal of living in a COVID-19 world as they head back to school. It had been going downhill for a while (arguably since they portrayed Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton as equally bad options during the 2016 presidential election), but I stuck with it as the show struggled to figure out how to stay relevant in the Trump era.

So I understand and empathize with Sharon's frustration when Randy devises a "pandemic special" for his product.

All-new episodes will be available to stream in HD exclusively on South Park Studios, CC.com and the Comedy Central App immediately following the west coast airing and on HBO Max 24 Hours after premiere. Like the actual, lifestyle in "South Park" has actually been actually switched bottom-side-up.

After close to a quarter of a century on air, South Park remains a huge hit for Comedy Central in the USA, and the network recently rewarded the success by renewing the series through 2022.
