South Park fans, rejoice! The newest entry in the series, the show’s 21st season, is set to premiere on Wednesday, September 13th at 10 p.m. You may or may not have known that already, but there’s a twist. For eight whole days leading up to the new season’s premiere, Comedy Central will be playing a non-stop South Park marathon. Starting on Wednesday, September 6th, the network will run virtually every episode of South Park to date, 254 episodes and 127 hours worth, sans James Franco. Other than The Daily Show with Trevor Noah in its usual timeslot, all other programming will be all South Park, all the time.
So, if you’ve fallen out of South Park and are looking to jump back in, here’s your chance. The past three seasons, and season 20 in particular, have been particularly astute, even by South Park’s standards. The recent seasons have adopted a new storytelling technique, crafting season-long storylines as opposed to the usual one-off episodes, and have done a great job of poking fun at all of the country’s biggest talking points, from PC culture and the obsession with nostalgia to Donald Trump (er, excuse me, Mr. Garrison). Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise: Trey Parker and Matt Stone have still got it.
