  4. June, 2019 - KFC is now selling bags of fried chicken skins. This would make Cartman a happy boy indeed! :D
  5. July 12, 2019 - I guess Trey won't divorce Boogie after all. He has reappeared on @thesouthparkers on IG since June 8.
  6. Jylu 16, 2019 - South Park didn't show this year - no nomination. Also, S23 begins on September 25, per banner sightings at SDCC. Still no contract renewals announced.
  7. July 20, 2019 - Califari sells shirts and artwork celebrating marijuana, so I'm expecting no more than that through this new venture. But if actual weed goes on sale, there will be demand!

    Jason McHugh promises shirts, artwork, weed, and so much more!

  8. July 21, 2019 - Is South Park Ending This Year? No new contracts announced yet.
  9. July 30, 2019 - The Blackout Club Now Available
    The story of Redacre is about to unfold as Question are officially releasing The Blackout Club today on PC, PS4, and Xbox One! Purchasers on consoles can enjoy a 10% discount off the $29.99 USD price to celebrate the week of launch. Question has also shared a launch trailer today to set the scene for new players entering into Redacre’s horror-tinged co-op world.
  10. August 13, 2019 - On the 22nd Anniversary of “South Park”, CBS Merges With Viacom And It Leaves Us With Questions
    1. Disney now owns Hulu, so Viacom and Hulu are splitting up
    2. Viacom and CBS have joined up once again, so SP may end up on CBS All-Access. SP used to air syndicated eps on KCAL 9, a CBS station. I was gonna check out Pluto TV, as some other cartoons are on there, but CBS also announced it will dissolve Pluto TV and fold it into CBS-AA. Matt and Trey will continue with the show until it gets cancelled.
  11. August 26, 2019 - Beyond Meat and KFC partner to test fried plant-based ‘chicken’ This would be Heidi getting back at Cartman for making her eat meat back in Season 20. :)
  12. September 11, 2019 - Four Out Who's Inside You Find out which South Park characters you're a mixture of. :)
  13. September 12, 2019 - As 'South Park' Gets Renewed On Comedy Central Through 2022, Matt Stone and Trey Parker Also Have New Movie Ideas
    1. South Park is renewed through Season 26, or 2022. :) Three more years!
    2. Matt and Trey have some killer movie ideas, but they're keeping mum about them.
    3. No direct-to-video or direct-to-stream option for them - they'd like people to see their movies in the theater, and they like premiere parties, lol.
    Eleven days from contract announcement to season opener is the shortest time ever! Dayum!
    The second shoe has yet to fall. Who's going to provide streaming service if Hulu won't be doing it now that it's part of Disney?

Fall 2019

  1. October 2, 2019 - No Live Tweet this week. Looks like they're not coming back. Which means they won't be part of the home video releases either.
  2. October 18, 2019 - 'South Park' Streaming Rights May Fetch Up to $500M in Bidding War. Six compnaies are vying for those rights.
  3. October 29, 2019 - 'South Park's' $500M Library Lands at HBO Max
    South Park is moving to HBO next season! Seasons 24-26 will stream from there, so expect to see major changes at South Park Studios next summer. Hopefully we get a new message board. The one we currently have really sucks ass now. HBO will also get the South Park library - all seasons up to 23 - and stream them from HBO Max. Makes sense, as the show has been critical of Disney, which now owns Hulu, and devoted a trilogy to Game of Thrones, which aired on HBO.

    Two things to ask about:
    1. Will the Muhammad episodes return to the stream? Next year will be 10 years already. Currently they're banned from the stream, but are available on R1 home video releases.
    2. Will the show air during the summer. or will it remain in the fall?
