New South Park Movie Will Premiere On November 26

The new South Park movie is set to premiere on November 26 on Paramount+.

Not much is known about the movie, except for the fact it's called South Park: Post Covid.

The show's co-creator Trey Parker told The Hollywood Reporter: "It's the boys dealing with a post-COVID world. They're just trying to get back to normal.

"So, it is like our show. We're just trying to get back to normal."

Paramount has also announced there will be another South Park movie dropping just one month later in December, however a specific date hasn't been revealed just yet.

It will be the first time Stan, Kenny, Kyle and Cartman land on Paramount's new streaming platform.

Matt Stone and Trey Parker inked a deal with the company earlier this year that was worth $900 million. As part of the deal, the two legends committed to making the iconic show at least up until Season 30 as well as produce 14 made-for-TV movies.

South Park: Post Covid is the first from that more than dozen movie schedule.

Chris McCarthy, President of MTV Entertainment Studios, revealed that in addition to all of that, the company is working with them on some new original content.

McCarthy said in a statement: "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.

"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+."

During the pandemic, Parker and Stone released hour-long South Park specials, and they managed to produce these remotely from the crew's homes.

They are looking forward to being able to flesh out their ideas in the future.

"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.

"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."
