By now, you know the drill. South Park doesn’t really rev up until the week or so before each premiere, but that doesn’t mean Season 21 arrives empty-handed. Check out an artful new teaser for the September premiere, as the town and its NSFW inhabitants cover “This Is How We Do It.”
If ever you lament that South Park occupies a brief window of Comedy Central each year, you’re in for a surprise. Stan, Kyle, Cartman, Kenny and the rest will take over the network this year with an eight-day marathon of almost every episode, leading right into the Season 21 premiere.
It was only last week we learned that Ilana and Abbi’s Broad City return was delayed even further to September, and it seems the boys of South Park followed suit. The impressive twenty-first season will wait the better part of a month, premiering in September instead.
Few would accuse South Park of losing its edge, though the yearly cycle understandably has trouble keeping up with current events (at their pace these days). That’s why Season 21 will get back to basics, as creator Trey Parker wants to ditch Trump in favor of “Cartman dressing up like a robot and [screwing] with Butters.”
