South Park, making its return to Comedy Central with its 26th season, has released its official first teaser for the season. The story of this season may likely pick up from the events South Park The Streaming Wars that hit Paramount last summer, according to ComicBook. Spoiler alert: this teaser gives an update on Butters.
This 15-second teaser, starts with placid shots of cows grazing and a view over the town, before segueing to discover Butters in a problematic circumstance, according to NME.
South Park is a Peabody and Emmy-award-winning animated series that is also a long-running series. Co-created by Trey Parker (Orgazmo, Cannibal! The Musical) and Matt Stone (BASEketball, Orgazmo), the series is about four boys, named Cartman, Stan , Kyle, and Kenny, living in one maladaptive Colorado mountain town, according to Bleeding Cool. Between local and global tragedies, and parental and celebrity interference, Cartman, Stan, Kenny, and Kyle always seem to manage to, as the well-known phrase says, “have themselves a time.”
According to Bleeding Cool, MTV Entertainment Studios’ deal with Stone and Parker included extending South Park on Comedy Central through 2027 and seizing cable’s longest-running scripted series through a 30th season. In addition, the new deal included 14 South Park original made-for-streaming movies exclusively for Paramount+. New movies have already been confirmed for this year.
South Park is executive produced by Stone and Parker, along with Frank C. Agnone II (The Bubble, Team America: World Police) and Anne Garefino (One False Move, Team America: World Police). The producers of the series include Adrien Beard (Team America: World Police, South Park: The Stick of Truth), Vernon Chatman (She Holler, The Heart), Eric Stough (Orgazmo, Team America: World Police), and Bruce Howell (Team America: World Police, That’s My Bush!). The creative director of South Park Digital Studios is Christopher Brion (The Rum Diary, The Men Who Stare at Goats).
South Park‘s 26th season will be premiering in February. The exact date has not yet been disclosed.
