Wow, what a terrific audience!
Comedy Central would have to agree with South Park‘s charismatic character, Jimmy, since they’ve green-lit the animated satire through 2019!
This entails 3 more seasons for the kooky cartoon, which will make it cable’s longest-running scripted primetime series.
And it also means Matt Stone and Trey Parker now have 30 new chances to kill Kenny!
The dynamic duo will continue to be heavily involved in creating the stories surrounding the crazy characters of South Park, Colorado.
The writer-slash-director pair thanked Viacom president Doug Herzog for giving them the opportunity to expand the silly series, saying in a statement:
“We love working for Doug and with everyone at Comedy Central. They’ve given us an insane level of artistic and creative freedom for almost 20 years. They walk the walk.”
With the renewal, the show will air 23 seasons. Season 19 is set to kick off on September 16.
