No matter how the times have changed, South Park is still around. This fall will premiere its 23rd season and previously, the long-running series has been renewed up to season 26. While South Park joins the ranks of The Simpsons in one of the longest-lasting animated adult shows, people have to wonder when does South Park end? Creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone sat down with THR to comment.
“I don’t think we have ever had an ‘OK, let’s sit down and decide if we are going to keep going’.”
“I am 48. Trey turns 50 this year. So I will say that I don’t think we will be doing this show when we’re 60.”
We should mention that Parker had pointed out in that same interview that the two have previously said they wouldn’t be working on the series in their 40s. We see that that did not come true.
Comedy Central president Kent Alterman praised South Park and that the network would work with the creators as long as they wanted to:
“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. 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.”
Do you think South Park’s end should be soon or do you want it to last as long as it can?
