South Park: Post Covid , the first of fourteen South Park specialsthat Paramount + will release in the coming years , arrives today on Paramount + in the USA.
Perfect opportunity to check out the new sneak peek, which depicts an adult Stan who, along with his father Randy, visits a doctor. Things take a grotesque turn when Randy invites his son to kick the doctor in the groin …
South Park: Post Covid asks “What happened to the children who went through the pandemic? Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny survived but they will never be the same again after Covid ”.
Post Covid will be followed by a second special in December. At the beginning of 2022, the new season of the series will arrive on Comedy Central. HERE you can see the Post Covid promo.
Don’t call them movies
Creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone point out that Paramount + projects aren’t movies, but neither are they South Park longform specials like those released on Comedy Central during the pandemic.
Parker said of the upcoming projects:
With Viacom, we realized we could make them as long or as short as we wanted. And then they ended up calling them movies. They are the ones who said we will give him 14 films in seven years. All I can say is that for me, personally, I am 52 years old, I have made three films in my life. So you do the math.
We’re trying to make what’s on Paramount + different than what’s elsewhere, so hour-long TV movies are our goal. We will make two TV movies every year. They’re going to be big, but they’re not quite cinematic in scale.
