South Park: Post Covid teaser trailer shows adult versions of Stan and Kyle

Paramount+ has debuted an official teaser for its first South Park project titled South Park: Post Covid. As the teaser indicates, South Park: Post Covid takes place 40 years in the future when the South Park gang are adults and reunite for an unknown problem.

Last month, while speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone told the outlet that the story will take place in a post-Covid world. “They’re just trying to get back to normal,” Parker said then. “So, it is like our show. We’re just trying to get back to normal.” It was also confirmed that a second South Park project will arrive on Paramount+ in December.

South Park: Post Covid, Paramount+, South Park

Both animated presentations fall under a deal with Paramount+ that lasts through 2027 and includes 14 Paramount+ projects, including a renewal for the animated series through season 30. When the deal was announced, Parker and Stone emphasized that the forthcoming projects are not films, but rather long-form South Park specials, like the ones that have been released on Comedy Central.

“We’re trying to make what’s on Paramount+ different from anywhere else, so hourlong made-for-TV movies is where our head is at. We’ll do two made-for-TV movies every year. They will be big, but they are not quite movie scale,” Stone told The Hollywood Reporter to curb fan expectations. In other words, those expecting something on the level of 1999’s South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut shall go wanting.

What do you think of the South Park: Post Covid teaser? Do you think Cartman will be just as obnoxious as an adult? How many times has Kenny been killed in 40-year’s time? Is a board game featuring Bill Kurtis any fun to play? I suspect that answers to these questions and more will come to light when South Park: Post Covid comes to Paramount+ on November 25th.
