The creators of irreverent TV cartoon series South Park have landed a new $75 million deal to make another three 14-episode seasons for Comedy Central.

Animators Matt Stone and Trey Parker's new deal, which contracts them to 2011, brings their stint at the TV network to over 10 years.

A thrilled Stone tells The Hollywood Reporter, "Three more years of South Park will give us the opportunity to offend that many more people."

Perhaps they could put out consistently strong episodes instead of alternating between one great one and one weak-as-shit one (like hockey cancer or the tale of head lice. Ecccch!)

For the most part theyve been consistently funny these past few years, long after many shows of the same age have gone the other way. Good news that they'll be around for another three years.

I agree, but I think a huge part of that is because they base so many of the episodes off of real life related plots. Almost the entire last two seasons have been parodies on news events or pop culture. Not that its a bad thing, and the episodes have definitely been funny.....its just something that I dont believe takes as much to design as a completely original plot. Its almost as if the town of south park has ceased to exist and the entire town is just a scale model America. Fortunately, that transition happened quickly while the show was still reaching its peak and we dont have a Simpsons-like after taste in our mouth from it.

The writers have done a nice job of taking the topic du jour and warping it enough where its humorous and edgy rather than just redundant.

Unlike other shows, South Park probably had the most amazing reverse shark jump in history. Ever try to watch those episodes from the first two seasons? They're terrible. I remember almost giving it up around the "faux-clip show" episode but then the movie came out and that changed everything. It went from being a silly, dirty cartoon to being the most brilliant, cutting, insightful show on TV.

Yea, its amazing how quickly and subtly it went from a cartoon largely based on toilet humor into a cultural and political satire (and, of course, there is still plenty of sick shit going on).

I remember the last time they reupped Matt and Trey said that they'd like to do one more movie as a way to close out the series once the televised run ends. I wonder if they still plan on doing this in, say, five years or so.

YES!

As long as they keep the show up to the hilarious caliber of the past few seasons, it will be amazing.

Would you rather they fill 95% of their episodes with flashbacks and every other line be "Remember that time?". Or be like the Simpsons, trying to be relevant but every episode is 8 months behind the times.

PS: I loved the "Lice" episode, if you think about it, it had a very deep plot. If you don't think about it, its just a bunch of lice dying. Either way it was classic. Obviously not their best but even Family Guy couldn't touch South Park's worst episode.

Best part being, none of the shows mentioned in this thread hold a candle to Futurama.
