Plus, how long will South Park continue?
South Park fans have a good long while before they have to worry about the show ending. Comedy Central has creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker signed on for at least two more seasons through 2016, and no telling how long after that. But when the time does come, do Matt and Trey have a story in mind for the very final episode?
To put it bluntly… no, not really. But speaking with IGN’s own Ryan McCaffrey at E3 last week, the creators did reveal what a South Park series finale would probably be like. “I think it’s going to end with a fizzle, for sure,” Parker said with a laugh. “I think it’s just going to end with some dud, and we’re gonna go, ‘F*** this, man,’ and walk away.”
Stone agreed, “Some sort of whimper. Either drop the mic, get sued, get thrown off television — something like that.”
“Yeah, we’ve thought that for 18 years,” Parker continued. “We’re like, ‘Okay, well, they’re going to cancel us, for sure!’ We’ve been waiting to get canceled for 18 f***ing years.”
Matt and Trey have expressed South Park fatigue before, but at this point they’re in it for the long(er) haul. “We won’t stop until we get canceled,” Stone said. “We’re renewing. They have to f***ing cancel us, goddammit!”
