The latest installment in the South Park franchise will premiere exclusively on Paramount+ in November. This will be the first new South Park content since March of this year’s South ParQ Vaccination Special.
That special episode, along with The Pandemic Special from September 2020, was the highest-rated South Park program in years. South Park, the longest-running scripted comedy on cable television, will celebrate its 25th anniversary in August 2022.
The new film is the result of a collaboration between Paramount Pictures and MTV Entertainment Studios (all of which are owned by ViacomCBS), as well as series creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone. The arrangement will keep South Park on Comedy Central until 2027 when it will enter its 30th season.
In addition, 14 original made-for-streaming events will be released exclusively on Paramount+ as part of the partnership. A new season was not published in 2020 for the first time since the series premiered. Fans have watched over 2.2
Fans have watched over 2.2 billion episodes of the show so far is 2021, indicating that this hasn’t slowed its popularity. On Thursday, November 25th, Parmount+ will exclusively release the new South Park special, South Park: Post Covid.
It will be available to watch outside of the United States in the Nordics, Latin America, Australia, and Canada. There are currently no narrative specifics for the film, but fans can look forward to Kyle, Stan, Kenny, and Cartman making their eagerly anticipated premiere on Paramount+.

Following South Park: Post Covid, Paramount+ has announced a second unique special that will air later this year. The new special, which has yet to be named, will premiere on Paramount+ in December.
Both episodes are expected to focus on the South Park boys grappling with life in their fictional Colorado town after the outbreak. According to Parker and Stone, the length of these new specials will be somewhere between the previous two specials and a feature-length film. The goal is to release two of the 14 films per year until 2027.
South Park’s satire is a fantastic vehicle for exploring the lunacy of the last two years. Previous programmes on pandemic issues ranged from police violence to the US Covid response to QAnon and immunizations. Cartman and the gang may discuss vaccine requirements and people who oppose them in the new Paramount+ specials, or any number of events that have occurred since March.
What is known is that Parker and Stone will not pull any punches, as they have repeatedly demonstrated.
