It seems that there will never be an era known as Post-South Park. Thanks to its up-to-date sociopolitical commentary, its familiar but consistently fresh characters, and its creative and often edgy take on anything and everything on its viewers' minds, South Park has plans to stay on the air for five more years. News today is that the Comedy Central series from Trey Parker and Matt Stone has extended its contract through 2016—which means we're sure to get their take on garbage-powered flying cars. This extention will bring South Park's season count to twenty, an impressive and unlikely feat for any television series that doesn't have the words "law" and "order" in the title.
Certain recent episodes have led fans to speculate that the series was coming to an end. A recurring theme this season has been the boredom of the series' main character Stan with his friends and his surroundings, as well as his parents' meta acknowledgement of how ridiculous the series has become. However, fans can now rest easy knowing that the show is not going anywhere anytime soon (pending its avoidance of the apocalypse next winter).
South Park is in its fifteenth season and airs Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Comedy Central.
