Fans of South Park will be pleased to hear that Trey Parker and Matt Stone don’t plan on ending the show any time soon.
The animated juggernaut has spawned 18 seasons, 257 episodes, an Academy Award nominated movie, several Emmy Awards and a second RPG videogame on the way, but is showing no signs of slowing down.
At E3, Stone and Parker announced new game ‘South Park: The Fractured But Whole’ as the follow-up to ‘The Stick Of Truth’.
In an interview with IGN’s Ryan McCaffrey for Podcast Unlocked, Stone and Parker also discussed the future of the Comedy Central show, specifically how much longer Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Cartman will be on our screens.
(Parker) Every season, about three shows in, we say this should be the last season. Then we go away for a couple of months and we’re like, ‘That was pretty good, let’s do it again.’ I think it’s gonna end with a fizzle for sure. We’re gonna go, ‘F*ck this, man’ and walk away.
(Stone) Some sort of a whimper. Either drop the mic, get sued, get thrown off cable television…
(Parker) We’ve thought that for 18 years, ‘They’re gonna cancel us for sure.’ We’re waiting to get cancelled for 18 f*cking years.
(Stone) We won’t stop until we get cancelled. We’re renewing. They have to f*cking cancel us, God dammit!
