'South Park' Will Be Tackling School Shootings In Their Season 22 Premiere

South Park, now heading into their 22nd season, has never been one to shy away from controversial issues and touchy subjects.
Whether it be about race, gun violence, gentrification, religion, addiction, pornography — you name it, and South Park has likely done it. And now they seem to be confronting one of our nation’s biggest problems head first: school shootings.
Based on the preview clip for the episode, the season 22 premiere of South Park, which is aptly titled “Dead Kids”, will seemingly revolve around a shoot shooting at South Park Elementary, the school that Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and the gang attend.
The official synopsis for “Dead Kids” — the 288th overall episode of the series — is as follows:

“Randy is desperate to help Sharon get her emotions under control and Cartman unexpectedly fails his math test.”


In typical South Park fashion, upon hearing that his son’s school was shot up, Randy lightly presses Stan on the issue before moving on to another issue, a clever way to highlight how Americans seem to deal with school shootings in real life.
“Who shot up the school? Was it you?” Randy asks. When Stan says it wasn’t him, Randy’s attention quickly returns to the failed math test, saying “Well, what’s this about failing a math quiz?”
The season 22 premiere of South Park, “Dead Kids” airs on Comedy Central on Wednesday, September 26 at 10 p.m. EST.
