The First Of Fourteen South Park Specials Set For November 25
Earlier this yr, Trey Parker and Matt Stone signed a mega-deal with Paramount that meant not only a multiple-season renewal for South Park however fourteen specials unique to their streaming service Paramount+. In response to new info launched at the moment, the primary one might be known as South Park: Put up-COVID and can premiere on the service in late November.
Keep in mind when these had been known as motion pictures? That’s what Paramount initially claimed they had been, however Matt and Trey have publicly corrected this. In an interview with THR they stated “[Paramount] went and known as them motion pictures. They’re those who stated we’re giving them 14 motion pictures in seven years. All I can say is for me, personally, I’m 52 years outdated, I’ve made three motion pictures in my life. So that you do the mathematics.”
With every particular being simply an hour lengthy, the duo are reluctant to name them motion pictures, although that’s concerning the size of Dumbo or a type of early 2000s Disney direct-to-VHS motion pictures. Stone says the specials might be “large, however not fairly film scale.”
And certainly, the plot of the primary particular doesn’t sound like a grandiose movie-worthy story, however extra like a median episode of the present. They had been reluctant to disclose an excessive amount of, however their primary abstract was that South Park: Put up-COVID was merely Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny making an attempt to regulate again to regular life after the chaos of the final two years. On condition that this sequence tends to be extremely “within the now” and COVID could be very a lot not gone but, we’re undecided the place that is actually going.
What we’re truly questioning is…the place is the present? It’s that point of the yr. On an abnormal schedule, we’d be no less than three episodes deep into a brand new season of South Park by now. Issues like NFTs and silly identify adjustments to Fb Corp are working round on the market utterly unmocked.
The precise cause why hasn’t been revealed, however the premiere of the particular South Park season has been moved to an early 2022 launch date. Earlier than that, the primary South Park Paramount+ particular will seem November 25.
