Paramount+ Pays $900 Million for 14 New ‘South Park’ Movies

Trey Parker and Matt Stone have a lot more Cartman and Co. coming our way

If reruns of Teen Mom 2 or a reunion of the Real World Season 1 cast didn’t get you signing up for Paramount+, the streamer is hoping that two new South Park movies a year for the foreseeable future will do the trick.

MTV Entertainment Studios just forked over $900 million to show creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker for 14 new movies about Cartman and the boys made exclusively for Paramount+ in a deal that will run through 2027, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The series will also be renewed in the bargain, with seasons 25 through 30 kicking off in 2022.

Additionally, Parker and Stone have signed on to create new original content for the ViacomCBS-owned digital clearinghouse.

“Franchising marquee content like South Park and developing new IP with tremendous talent like Matt and Trey, is at the heart of our strategy to continue growing Paramount+,” entertainment chief Chris McCarthy said in a statement.

Much like a Twilight movie, sources tell THR that the first two upcoming South Park flicks will be one story served in two halves.

The only unhappy news might be for HBO Max subscribers, since that’s where the first 24 seasons of the series can be found (not to mention for free at South Park Studios), along with 1999’s Oscar-nominated South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut.

“Comedy Central has been our home for 25 years and we’re really happy that they’ve made a commitment to us for the next 75 years,” Parker and Stone said in a statement.
