South Park’s Trey Parker & Matt Stone Sign New ViacomCBS Deal


MTV Entertainment Studios has entered into a new and expanded deal with South Park co-creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone that includes extending the series on Comedy Central through 2027.

The new pact takes cable’s longest-running scripted series through an unprecedented 30th season. It also includes 14 South Park original made-for-streaming movies for Paramount+, including two for 2021.

“Matt and Trey are world-class creatives who brilliantly use their outrageous humor to skewer the absurdities of our culture, and we are excited to expand and deepen our long relationship with them to help fuel Paramount+ and Comedy Central,” said Chris McCarthy, president and CEO of MTV Entertainment and CCO of adult animation for Paramount+. “Franchising marquee content like South Park and developing new IP with tremendous talent like Matt and Trey is at the heart of our strategy to continue growing Paramount+.”

“Comedy Central has been our home for 25 years, and we’re really happy that they’ve made a commitment to us for the next 75 years,” said Parker and Stone. “When we came to ViacomCBS with a different way to produce the show during the pandemic, Chris (McCarthy), Nina (Diaz), Keyes (Hill-Edgar) and Tanya (Giles) were immediately supportive and enabled us to try something new that turned out to be really well received. We can’t wait to get back to doing traditional South Park episodes, but now we can also try out new formats. It’s great to have partners who will always take a chance with us.”
