By now, you know the drill. South Park doesn’t really rev up until the week or so before each premiere, but that doesn’t mean Season 21 arrives empty-handed. Check out an artful new teaser for the September premiere, as the town and its NSFW inhabitants cover “This Is How We Do It.”
If ever you lament that South Park occupies a brief window of Comedy Central each year, you’re in for a surprise. Stan, Kyle, Cartman, Kenny and the rest will take over the network this year with an eight-day marathon of almost every episode, leading right into the Season 21 premiere.
It was only last week we learned that Ilana and Abbi’s Broad City return was delayed even further to September, and it seems the boys of South Park followed suit. The impressive twenty-first season will wait the better part of a month, premiering in September instead.
South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker had some understandable frustration with reworking Wednesday’s “The Very First Gentleman” into “Oh, Jeez” after the election; so much so, that they made history of their own in the process. The revamped episode apparently featured the series’ first uncensored F-bomb in the initial broadcast.
South Park may have been confident enough in its election predictions for 2008 and 2012 to use their quick turnaround on Wednesday’s episodes, but 2016 may be their biggest challenge yet. Following an early call for “The Very First Gentleman,” tonight’s South Park has been reworked into “Oh, Jeez” with a new clip.
A new season of "South Park" gets underway tonight. The new episode apparently takes on concussion injuries in football. All the talk leads Randy to develop a new sport called "Sarcastiball" which one of the kids is very good at (my guess is Cartman, but we'll see). More after the jump.
