South Park new season date confirmed

Fans will get a preview at the forthcoming San Diego Comic-Con

Comedy Central have announced that South Park will return to our screens on September 26 for its 22nd season.

Fans will have a chance to get a preview of sorts at the San Diego Comic-Con later this month, reports Consequence Of Sound.

Comedy Central are hosting two activations at the event. The first, ‘Cartman’s Escape Room’, sees 10 fans at a time trapped in “the most impossible to escape place ever invented.” To make their way out they’ll have to solve a series of puzzles using their South Park knowledge.


There is also the ‘South Park Member Berries Challenge’, in which “fans will be asked three South Park trivia questions. If the fan answers all three correctly, they will walk away clean and be rewarded with their very own limited edition Member Berry. However, if a fan answers incorrectly, Member Berry juice will spew out of Randy’s mouth on to the losing player.”

The most recent series of South Park aired from last September until November, in which time Parker and Stone also released their second video game The Fractured But Whole. In the trailer for the game, the cartoon re-ignited an infamous feud with Kanye West, who is portrayed as a gay fish.

The rapper was first referred to as a gay fish in the show in 2009 episode ‘Fishsticks’, where he is shown not understanding a joke about why liking fishsticks made him a gay fish.
