‘South Park’: Can you watch the controversial new episodes online?
Fans have been a mixture of disgusted and captivated by Comedy Central’s South Park, watching Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny since 1997. Even after all these years, fans still aren’t tired of watching the boys perform their hilarious antics which means that this round of episodes marks the series’ twenty-fifth season. Audiences can look forward to the edgiest jokes ever written because Trey Parker & Matt Stone just don’t believe in sugar-coating.
Unsurprisingly, the pandemic slowed the show down, merely giving us two specials instead of their usual seasons. And rises in Covid cases gave fans a reason to believe we’d get another special. Or perhaps we’d continue to watch South Park reruns online? But instead, South Park has returned with their first regular season episode since 2019. No time was wasted mocking Matt Damon and his recent cryptocurrency commercial.
On September 12th, 2019, the show was renewed for seasons 24 through 26 until 2022. Due to the change in plans, however, it looks like fans can expect to watch new episodes of South Park online until at least next year. Don’t worry, we’re not here to discuss the ins and outs of production. Just sit back and learn where to watch some of the most controversial South Park episodes online!
When can we watch season 25 of South Park online?
The new season will consist of twenty-five episodes. At this present moment, we’re not entirely certain if Comedy Central will air some additional episodes. We’re only mentioning this because the show has developed a tendency to surprise its audience every now and then. The first episode of South Park season 25 aired yesterday on February 2nd.
HBO Max and Paramount +
Where exactly will South Park fans visit when they wish to watch the show online? The streaming platform HBO Max was previously known as a home for it, but unfortunately, the new South Park will not be available on the platform. HBO Max does possess streaming rights to new South Park episodes. But the new episodes won’t be available until well after the new season is finished.
As for Paramount +, the answer is definitely, “no.” ViacomCBS gave the streaming rights to HBO Max. A massive deal was made with the South Park creators Trey Parker & Matt Stone to compose specials and movies for the Paramount+ streaming platform.
Amid yesterday’s season 25 premiere Pajama Day, the boys’ fourth-grade class lost their privilege to wear pajamas to the school’s pajama day which of course, sent the class into a spiral. As we know, South Park has always been a pretty small town so it didn’t take long for the townspeople to become involved.
The episode presented a running gag that skewers Matt Damon over an already greatly criticized commercial he starred in for cryptocurrency. The Oscar winner was seen comparing being a crypto investor to an array of milestones in human achievement. “Fortune favors the brave,” Damon said in closing.
“What does Matt Damon say in the bitcoin commercial? Fortune favors the brave!” Said Cartman amid trying to rally the class to fight back against the school principal’s pajama day decision. Clyde responded, “My dad said he listened to Matt Damon and lost all his money.” Cartman replied, “Yes, everyone did! But, they were brave in doing so!”
Fans witnessed a few more shots at the iconic actor over the commercial prior to the episode going meta and notes that jokes about the commercial are already dated.
