If the South Park series drives you crazy then this bit of news isn’t going to exactly make your day. Comedy Central has announced that the second half of season 15 will kick off on October 5th, paired with the second season debut of Nick Swardson’s Pretend Time. South Park’s season 15 is comprised of 14 installments and seven new ones remain.
The show’s creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, have alluded to possibly ending the series soon but apparently Comedy Central has them under contract for two more years, through 2013. That means that South Park is locked up through season 17.
Naturally, that doesn’t mean that Parker and Stone won’t necessarily have time to work on other projects. Their Broadway musical hit (created with Robert Lopez), <em>The Book of Mormon</em>, recently won a staggering nine Tony Awards and continues to be a big hit. It’s scheduled to go on the tour in late 2012 and possibly open in London as well.
What do you think? How long should South Park go on? Are you glad to hear that the animated series is continuing or do you think it’s time for it to be cancelled?
