Screen Rant: The foul-mouthed fourth graders return for another season on Comedy Central – but will the show stay there after last year’s Muhammad controversy?
I sincerely hope so. I haven't found the show funny in about 8 season. I just can't get into the humor anymore. Maybe it's because I'm getting older, but there's not as much appeal anymore. Though the early episodes still have me cracking up.
Something is severely wrong if you haven't found the show funny in the last 8 years.
Like I said, it could just be me, but my sense of humor just doesn't jive with the show anymore. There are still funny parts, but on the whole, I haven't had any interest.
As a huge South Park fan I'll admit the last 2-3 seasons have been pretty mediocre. A couple standout episodes but overall mediocre. I'd like to see it run as long as possible but everything has to eventually come to an end.
I don't know if it's been funny since... season 6 or 7? I just stopped watching. It felt like too much of the same thing.
Yup it's just you.
South Park will last longer than next season on comedy central for 3 reasons 1. It's the number one rated adult cartoon show on tv and has been for a long time. In fact, it's still increasing in popularity. 2. Matt and Trey recently said that they were extremely proud of their show. 3. Comedy Central backs up South Park like crazy (except for that one episode) Comedy Central won't let it die without offering a lot of money.
Season 10 is brilliant! I hope it continues.
They had a strong season last year, good ratings and seasons left on their contract. Controversy is ratings and they are not likely to be done with it until Trey and Matt are ready to move on.
I'd rather see them stop prematurely than beat the show into the ground like The Simpsons.
no way they move to another cable network or internet platform. what would be cool is if this is the last season - they do a two movies.
If it's not the last season it should be.
Lol. I stopped watching it a long time ago. Every once in a while, one of my friends will point out a hilarious episode, and I'll watch it. But that's the extent of my viewership. Everything must come to an end, at some point. No sense in beating a dead horse.
All good things come to an end. I must say I stopped watching long ago...
Just like The Simpsons and Family Guy, its not as funny as it once was. But then theres something in nearly every episode thats hilarious like the Family Guys Streetfighter scene, and you just wish they could sustain that for the full 23 minutes. Simpsons isnt just less funny, but since the Movie came out the whole pacing feels slower. It used to be rapid fire, bang, bang, bag, but now it feels slower like a movie. Southpark is still very clever and knows how to take a dig at itself. The whole reunion ep with every celeb returning was brilliant.
Aqua Team Hunger force is another show that outlived its funnyness.
They need more theme based episodes like Family Guy has done. Something big like the Star Wars series could really revive SouthPark for a good 2 or 3 seasons. Beyond that I don't see much...it might just drag on and on, but I rather it just end. Last thing we need is a couple horrible seasons recycling on networks making people dislike the show.
I don't know a Star Wars episode woul be cliche imo. I mean everyone's payed homage, or parodied it, and they've poked fun at George Lucas before, and I'm sure he wouldn't appreciate it as much as the Family Guy, or Robot Chicken ones. @ Below oh yea, I agree they should definitely try a theme episode
Well I dont mean Star Wars, I was just using Family Guys' Star Wars series as an example. I'm just saying they need to find something similar and make something of it. Make it a huge event, sell the DVD's, and gain a lot of interest with it. kind of put that South Park spark back into the series with it. That would bring a lot of fans back, create a whole bunch of new ones, and give them some breathing room for a season or two. Otherwise its standard formula is kind of dying off and becoming useless.
I think south park is amazing still. Sure some episodes are a bit much (mintberry crunch one comes to mind) but the shake weights one had me in stitches the entire time. If it's south park's last season no doubt Matt Stone and Trey Parker will either create something new or stick to movies. It'd be a huge loss if they stopped making stuff completely as they're both extremely talented.
Obviously season 15 won't be the last because it was renewed for another 2-3 seasons, this guy is a complete moron. People should at least make an attempt to do some research before writing an article.
It was renewed another 2-3 seasons after season 12 though, right? So that means this may be the last season.
I'm pretty sure it was after season 14 because it was relatively recent news when I read the source, and I try to keep track of whether shows I watch are being renewed or not.
This is the last season that they are under contract for. It was renewed during the 12th season in 2007 as JamieLeC93 said. Calling the author a moron though was an embarrassing mistake.
The show has lost it's spark, but it wouldn't feel right if new South Park stopped coming out. I've been an avid South Park fan since the very first season. But yeah, agree with above comment.
This is one of the few shows that I find myself laughing constantly at. Regularly I watch South Park, How I Met your Mother and The Big Bang Theory but of the 3 shows, I talk about South Park more often with friends.
I love Big Bang Theory. That show is hilarious. Quite enjoy How I Met Your Mother as well.
ive never laughed so hard at a show before watching the big bang theory....anything that comes out of sheldons mouth is pure gold....i havent watched any of the newest season yet....same with how i met your mother
Yea Sheldon is awesome. Between him and Modern Family's Cam character, the two funniest characters on TV right now I think.
I actually haven't watched South Park for a few seasons now. Been a while. It wasn't that the show was getting boring or bad to me or anything, it's just for some reason my DVR quit recording it. I had it set up for a series recording. Then one day at the start of a new season, it just failed to start recording them. I tried tinkering with the series recording, but still nothing. So, I keep forgetting about it or even when it's own. And usually my plate is so full with other movies and shows nowadays that I just don't have the time or desire to pack something else onto the schedule. Though I do love me some South Park. Guess just for the last few seasons I've been too forgetful, lazy or busy to go out of my way to watch it (since the series recording won't work for some reason). But that's definitely not a shot at the show. Last I watched it, it was still hilarious. I do agree with something said above though. I'd like them to end it before they run it into the ground. Not saying it has to be this final season, just before they do run it into the ground. The Simpsons, as mentioned, is a good example of that. I just can't bring myself to watch that one anymore, nor have I been able to for a long time now.
I lost interest in South Park five seasons ago. You can tell the show has been taking into a completely different direction. Most of my favorite animated tv shows I don't even watch anymore. Family Guy,The Simpsons,South Park. I just lost interest in them. Family Guy used to be funny back in 2000 when it was actually funny. Now its the dumbest show I've ever seen on television. I find Seinfield re-runs to be funnier then anything on tv.
All things have their time and this has been on way too long. Even some of the best dramas that I've enjoyed thru the years can only go on for so long. Comedy is good...some is too stupid to be good and then some know when to cut the cord.
I love South Park. I have been watching it since it first came out over a decade ago. The show has only gotten better and better. I would love to see the show go on indefinately, and Trey and Matt are so extremely talented.
