‘South Park’ and its dysfunctional anti-heroes Eric, Kyle, Kenny & Stan are set to return for a record 19th season, with ten all-new episodes beginning on Monday, October 5, at 9pm (CAT) on Comedy Central (DStv channel 122).
Eighteen years after its inception, ‘South Park’ still packs a punch, and continues to surprise even its most devoted fans each and every week. Famous for its unbelievably immediate and ruthless responses to world events, South Park’s latest outing brings up-to-the-minute news and pop culture icons (including Al Gore, J. Lo, Kanye West, Oprah, Sir Elton John, Tom Cruise, John Travolta and P. Diddy) to the town of South Park for a slice of biting social commentary with a heap of good old-fashioned ridicule on the side.
Things have changed a bit down at South Park Elementary: there’s a new principal and he forces the boys to confront the damage they’ve done through their history of racism and unconscious bias. Episode 1, ‘Stunning and Brave’, find a new target, including a typical South Park-style “tribute” to Caitlyn (formerly Bruce) Jenner.
