Comedy Central Renews 'South Park' for Three Additional Seasons

Comedy Central has today renewed its original animated comedy series South Park for three additional seasons - keeping it on the air through its 26th season. Each of the three seasons will be comprised of 10 episodes apiece. The renewal comes ahead of the comedy's Season 23 premiere on Wednesday, September 25.

Series creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone will continue to write, direct and edit every episode of the animated comedy. They executive produce with Anne Garefino and Frank C. Agnone II. Eric Stough, Adrien Beard, Bruce Howell and Vernon Chatman serve as producers. South Park Digital Studios produces for Comedy Central.

"South Park is the greatest comedy in the history of television, unmatched in its satirical strength and cultural relevancy and it shows no signs of slowing down," said Kent Alterman, President of Comedy Central, Paramount Network and TV Land. "If humanity is still intact in 1000 years, historians will see the most transcendent artists of our era as The Beatles, Muhammed Ali, and Matt and Trey. We'll do as many seasons as they would like."

"Apparently, our efforts to get our own show cancelled have fallen short," added Parker and Stone. "Luckily, we love Comedy Central and Kent and our staff so we are looking forward to new cancellation opportunities in the next few years."
