As it kicks off its 21st season, fans of the South Park TV show don’t have to wonder whether it will be cancelled or renewed. Comedy Central renewed the animated adult comedy from Trey Parker and Matt Stone all the way through its 23rd season, back in July of 2015. We’ve decided to track the ratings, to see how much longer it might last beyond that point, so stay tuned.
South Park centers on four third grade boys who live in South Park, Colorado: Stanley “Stan” Marsh (Parker), Kyle Broflovski (Stone), Kenneth “Kenny” McCormick (Stone), and Eric Cartman (Parker). The Comedy Central voice cast also includes: Mona Marshall, April Stewart, Adrien Beard, and Jennifer Howell.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.
