Is South Park going off the air? Recently, creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the future of the Comedy Central series.
The animated series premiered in 1997 and so far has aired more than 250 episodes over the course of its 19 seasons.
At this year’s E3, Park and Stone previewed the new South Park video game, The Fractured But Whole, and said games may be the future for the series:
PARKER: We also know that this [he points at the video game] might be the future of South Park. This might be where things are going.
STONE: I think in 20 years, 10 years, people will be playing more. That convergence of entertainment, whether it’s VR or a more immersive thing. The more you get in it, the more you watch Pew Die Pie, and people watch Pew Die Pie play, and you watch E-sports. You watch young people, and the way they engage with something – sh–, maybe that is the future of South Park.”
The Fractured But Whole will be the seventh South Park video game. It is expected for release this December.
