Comedy Central’s “South Park” is guaranteed to run for two more seasons thanks to a deal that secured the show through 2016. But that hasn’t stopped the show’s creators, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, from envisioning how their long-standing animated series will eventually conclude.
“I think it’s going to end with a fizzle, for sure,” Parker said, laughing. “I think it’s just going to end with some dud, and we’re gonna go, ‘F— this, man,’ and walk away.”
“Some sort of whimper,” Stone added. “Either drop the mic, get sued, get thrown off television — something like that.”
Stone and Parker also discussed how they have felt that the show, which concluded it’s 18th season last December, has always been on the precipice of a collapse that they somehow seem to consistently avoid.
“Yeah, we’ve thought that for 18 years,” Parker said. “We’re like, ‘OK, well, they’re going to cancel us, for sure!’ We’ve been waiting to get canceled for 18 f—ing years.”
“We won’t stop until we get canceled,” Stone added. “We’re renewing. They have to f—ing cancel us, goddammit!”
For now, before season 19 starts up in September, the guys are busy promoting their hilariously titled “South Park: The Fractured But Whole,” a sequel to their 2014 video game “South Park: The Stick of Truth.”
