More South Park on the horizon
Hooray! At least three more years of animated lewdness is in the works. From the Hollywood Reporter:
Comedy Central has inked a deal with the creators of "South Park" to bring back the long-running animated series for three additional seasons, the network announced Thursday. Executive producers and co-creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker will write, direct and edit 42 more episodes of "Park." Currently in its ninth season, "Park" will stay put through 2008, producing 14 episodes each year over the next three years. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, but it is expected to be one of basic cable's biggest producer paydays with revenues from "South" DVDs and merchandise thrown in. The series is also about to enter syndication later this month.
It'll be a challenge for Parker and Stone to top the finale of last season's Paris Hilton episode (which may or may not the series' "most outrageous" moment) but, with three years ahead of them, surely they'll think of something.
The new season starts October 19th.
