South Park continues its 21st season tonight with “Put It Down.” It will be the second of 10 episodes in the 21st season, and it is the 279th overall episode.
Between the general disappoint of last season and all that has happened in the world since the show wrapped up season 20, South Park heads into its 21st year with more pressure than usual. Given the shaky first few months of the Donald Trump presidency, one would expect Trey Parker and Matt Stone to dive into it head first. That couldn’t be farther from the truth, as the South Park creators want absolutely nothing to do with Donald Trump this season
“Yeah, and it’s also just gotten boring. We weren’t ever really that show. We would do an entire season and there would be one moment that played off something that had just happened and people would go, South Park is the show that does that. And that’s just not true. We’re not.
We did start to become that, though, especially the last season. We fell into the same trap that “Saturday Night Live” fell into, where it was like, “Dude, we’re just becoming CNN now. We’re becoming: ‘Tune in to see what we’re going to say about Trump.’ Matt and I hated it but we got stuck in it somehow,” Trey Parker said back in July.
Now, while they may not be satirizing the President this season, it certainly looks like they will be gunning after his supporters, as the premiere episode seems to be tackling the Confederacy and white supremacy head on.
South Park was also renewed through to season 23 in 2019 Comedy Central put out a statement to celebrate the announcement of the show’s renewal:
“South Park remains the bedrock of Comedy Central and we are thrilled that new episodes will continue to entertain audiences for years to come,” said Michele Ganeless, president of Comedy Central, in a press release. “The series remains as urgent and relevant now as the day it premiered and at nearly 20 seasons in it continues to draw generations of new fans.”
After using a serialized format for the last couple of seasons, South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have hinted that they will be going back to the show’s old format of standalone episodes, and will focus less on satire, and more on “Cartman dressing up like a robot and screwing with Butters.”
