South Park Creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker have released details of their upcoming film plans, with the first set releasing this month.
The duo recently signed a deal with Comedy Central that renewed the show through season 30 and ordered 14 made-for-television movies for US streaming service Paramount +.
The first film, titled South Park: Post Covid, has been teased in a new trailer and will see Cartman, Stan, Kyle, and Kenny attempt to readjust to normal society.
Here it is:
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Parker said:
“It’s the kids dealing with a post-COVID world. They are just trying to get back to normal. So it’s like our show. We are just trying to get back to normal. “
A second hour-long movie made for television will arrive in December, each described as “big” but “not quite on a cinematic scale.” They plan to release two made-for-television movies each year for Paramount +.
Teasing future stories, Stone said:
“We are where a lot of people are, which is the kind of future that sucks.
“We would like to go back to where every week we can do something totally different. We tried experimenting with serialization. That had mixed results. And the last five or six years have been dominated by Trump, being political and the tonal shift of society. And then the pandemic. We don’t want it to be all about the pandemic, but that is what is happening. “
“We are a bit caught up talking about bigger issues. As for the pandemic, we are all going through something. So maybe with this new setup, we can do both. We can go do our fast series pop songs, but also our movies of the week. “
Created in 1997, South Park It has become one of the most successful animated shows of all time, with 23 seasons in total thus far.
South Park: Post Covid is scheduled to be released on November 25.
