South Park Tackling Coronavirus With Hourlong Pandemic Special

"South Park" is the latest show to be tackling the coronavirus pandemic.

Comedy Central released a description of the show's plot, which reads, "Randy comes to terms with his role in the COVID-19 outbreak as the on-going pandemic presents continued challenges to the citizens of South Park".

The episode will premiere September 30 and will be available to stream at CC.com and the Comedy Central app after the West Coast airing.

"The Pandemic Special" will air 8 p.m. ET/PT Wednesday, Sept. 30 on Comedy Central (with encore airings at 9 and 10 p.m.). The kids happily head back to school but nothing resembles the normal that they once knew; not their teachers, not their homeroom, not even Eric Cartman.

News of the special comes nearly exactly a year after "South Park" was renewed through season 26 by Comedy Central, which is nearly entirely exiting the scripted live-action business in favor of animated and late-night fare. "South Park" hit the 300th episode milestone during season 23, but it still trails "The Simpsons" by four seasons in the the longest-running animated series of all time table. I understand that the show is skewering actual businesses that have done similar things, but frankly, anything involving Tegridy Farms has become so grating that I no longer trust that the execution will be amusing - and when South Park loses its humor, it just sort of feels like a wandering, angry show that's a shadow of its former self.
