South Park Will Take On Caitlyn Jenner In Season 19 Premiere! Will The Jokes Go Too Far?

no title

South Park has been satirizing the media for nearly two decades, and creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone plan on kicking off Season 19 with 2015’s hottest topic — Caitlyn Jenner!

Comedy Central was pretty vague in revealing just how the show would handle the reality star’s public transition, teasing only that “the boys express their utmost respect” for the Olympian.

We’re sure the long running animated series will have no qualms about poking fun at the former Olympian, as it hasn’t held back making fun of other celebs like Tom Cruise, Angelina Jolie, and Kanye West!

But will it be tasteful? Or transphobic?

As for what actually goes down in the episode, the cable network did reveal:

“There is a new principal at the helm of South Park Elementary. He forces the boys to confront the damage they’ve done through their history of racism and unconscious bias. It is the most stunning and brave South Park ever.”

The premiere episode is titled “Stunning and Brave,” which could be a nod to Kris Jenner‘s quote calling Cait’s Arthur Ashe Courage Award speech at the ESPYS Awards “amazing and very brave.”

It’s not clear how Jenner will tie in just yet, but she isn’t the only celeb in the line of fire — in the sneak peek clip (below), Tom Brady gets roasted for his #Deflategate scandal!

Check out the episode Wednesday night at 10pm ET on Comedy Central!
