We knew a second South Park special , following Post Covid , was coming to Paramount + this month, and now here’s the first.
The new special, arriving on December 16, will be titled South Park: Post Covid: The Return of Covid and will once again feature Stan, Kyle and Cartman as adults. But this time there will also be time travel …
The official synopsis
If Stan, Kyle and Cartman were able to work together, they could go back in time to prevent the arrival of Covid.
Don’t call them movies
South Park: Post Covid: The Return of Covid will be the second of fourteen specials arriving on the Paramount platform. Creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone point out that Paramount + projects aren’t movies, but neither are they South Park longform specialslike 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.
