'South Park' to Return with Hour-Long 'Pandemic Special'

South Park will be tackling the coronavirus in a one-hour episode titled "The Pandemic Special".

Fans can turn in at 8 p.m.to see the first showing, and also 9 p.m. and 10 p.m.

For Kyle, Stan, Cartman and Kenny the quartet are having to adjust to the new normal of living in a COVID-19 world as they head back to school.

South Park is coming back - and addressing the current global health crisis.

The teaser promises to cover additional "2020 problems", and shows the kids with germ barriers around their desks in the classroom, while their teachers have been replaced by cops.

Long-running Comedy Central cartoon "South Park" will return September 30 with an hourlong Season 24 premiere about the coronavirus, according to Deadline. Like the real world, life in "South Park" has been turned upside-down.

Series creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone will of course write and executive produce the special. "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.

Based on first-hand accounts of how American schools has handled the COVID-19 pandemic, this is only going to end in tears for all the kids living in South Park and many laughs for us. Eric Stough, Adrien Beard, Bruce Howell, and Vernon Chatman serve as producers.
