HBO Max is headed to South Park. The new streaming service from Warner Bros. unveiled a whole slew of programming today during a WarnerMedia Day event, including the news that you’ll soon find South Park streaming on HBO Max. Earlier this month word broke that the show was looking to land a huge streaming deal, and it looks like it got its wish.

South Park has been making headlines lately for poking and prodding at the oppressive Chinese government and its endless attempts to censor its citizens from any criticism in the media whatsoever. That may not be good for the show’s exposure in China, where it’s been banned, but in the United States, it’s not preventing creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone (as well as Comedy Central parent company Viacom Inc.) from landing a huge deal for the exclusive streaming rights to the complete series.

‘South Park’ Has Apparently Been Banned in China Thanks to Its Most Recent Episode; Trey Parker and Matt Stone Respond

More than 20 years after its Comedy Central debut, South Park is still generating controversy.
The show’s most recent episode, “Band in China,” has apparently actually been banned in China because Chinese censors didn’t appreciate the episode’s depiction of the country’s authoritarian regime. Practically all signs of the show have been scrubbed from the Chinese internet, and now creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have issued an “official apology” in response. (Spoiler alert: it’s not a real apology.)

Have you heard of the latest entertainment sensation called escape rooms? A group of friends get together and get locked in a room full of puzzles, clues and locks that must be navigated in order to get out of the room. Each escape room usually has some kind of theme and narrative to add some layers of fun, and now Comedy Central’s best known series will be getting one of its own.
A new South Park escape room is opening today, May 15 at Escape the Room Chicago, and it will soon expand to more major cities around the United States. Find out about the new South Park escape room below. Read More »

South Park has been on Comedy Central since 1997, making it one of the longest-running animated comedies in history. But is it about to come to an end? A new trailer for South Park season 22 teases the show’s own cancellation, leaving us with more questions than answers. Read More »
Oh, South Park. The notorious, the infamous, the legendary South Park. I remember being a child and watching South Park while hiding under pillows that my older brothers put over me so that my parents wouldn’t know I was there. By the time I was 11 and my parents had caved, the DVD box sets were being released and my brothers started me back at episode one. The rest was history.
I have seen every episode of South Park, some only once or twice, and others upwards of unfathomable numbers. When tasked to pick my top 10 favorite episodes out of its 20 seasons, I was naive and ignorant to think that this would be super simple. I get to watch South Park and write about it. Hell, yeah! However, once I started scanning through and picking my favorite episodes out of every season to narrow it down, I ended up with a list 60 episodes long. This was a beast.

Much like Saturday Night Live, the mere existence of a new episode of South Park is a bit of a miracle. Just like the late night sketch show, a new episode of South Park is completed in just six days, which is almost unfathomably fast for an animated comedy series. But thankfully, creators, writers and stars Trey Parker & Matt Stone and their crew have it down to a science, and that even includes one of them using their toddler daughter to create dialogue for a signature character.
A new video has surfaced online featuring Trey Parker directing his three year old daughter Betty to record some dialogue for the show as only a father can. The lines in question are for Kyle Broflovski’s little Canadian brother Ike, whose voice has been performed by a number of child actors throughout the show’s 20-season run. It’s really adorable to see how they get her to say Ike’s lines.
Watch Trey Parker’s daughter act as Ike’s voice on South Park after the jump. Read More »
