South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker have signed a massive new $900 million multi-year deal with ViacomCBS. South Park was renewed for Season 30 on Comedy Central, with Parker and Stone set to produce 14 movies based on the franchise for Paramount+. The first two films will premiere by the end of the year, ahead of the show’s 25th anniversary in 2022.
Stone and Parker said in a press release: “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. We can’t wait to get back to doing traditional South Park episodes but now we can also try out new formats. It’s great to have partners who will always take a chance with us.”
South Park premiered on Comedy Central in 1997 and the movie South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut was released in 1999. The show completed its 23rd season in December 2019, and two TV specials — The Pandemic Special and South ParQ Vaccination Special — aired during the COVID-19 pandemic.
