South Park Creators Sign $900m Deal With ViacomCBS

South Park’s creators have signed a $900 million deal with American media giant ViacomCBS to create new episodes.

Trey Parker and Matt Stone will create more South Park content for Comedy Central.

Additionally, the duo said they plan to create more than a dozen spinoff films, which will be streamed on Viacom’s Paramount+ streaming service.

The first project to be created under the deal, which runs to late 2027, will be a South Park movie, scheduled to premiere later this year.

Parker and Stone’s deal with ViacomCBS includes six seasons of the popular cartoon TV show South Park and 14 films.

Chris McCarthy of MTV Entertainment and Paramount+ described South Park’s creators as “world-class creatives.”

In a statement, he said that Matt and Trey “brilliantly use their outrageous humor to skewer the absurdities of our culture.”

“We are excited to expand and deepen our long relationship with them to help fuel Paramount+ and Comedy Central,” McCarthy added.

Parker and Stone later talked about the deal, suggesting that it would last much longer than officially agreed.

They said that Comedy Central had been their home for 25 years and that they were “really happy that they’ve made a commitment to us for the next 75 years.”

South Park debuted in 1997 and quickly achieved international fame.

It follows four guys – Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, Eric Cartman, and Kenny McCormick – focusing on their exploits in and around the town of South Park in Colorado, USA.

The TV show has become infamous for its dark and controversial humor and strong language.

South Park often satirizes adult topics and issues.

To date, its creators have produced more than 300 episodes and a movie, South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut, released in 1999.

The deal was announced as the world’s largest media and technology companies struggle to dominate an increasingly competitive global streaming market.

The entertainment industry has seen many multi-million-dollar deals that promise to secure popular content, including Amazon’s purchase of MGM studios in May.

The deal allowed Amazon to acquire one of Hollywood’s most famous studios, known for classics like Some Like It Hot and Singin’ In The Rain, for $8.45 billion.
