“South Park” Renewed Through 2020 By Comedy Central; Makes Big Deal with Hulu
(via The Hollywood Reporter)
That translates to 23 seasons and well over 300 episodes of the now living legend that is South Park.
For now, Comedy Central has made good on South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker’s desire to keep the show going as long as they can. They had two seasons to go under their current deal and just got three more ordered, which will roll out over the next 5 years.
Also, over the next 5 years, Hulu will get to stream all of South Park paying the hefty price tag of $192 million throughout that duration.
Off the top of our head, only The Simpsons and SNL have longer on-going runs as comedy series than South Park.
