It’s a big week for adult animation, as Comedy Central prepares for the premiere of South Park Season 26 as well as the broadcast debut of Mike Judge’s Beavis & Butt-head, both bringing their special brands of irreverent, chaotic humor to the network on Wednesday, February 8.
South Park returns for its mindboggling 26th season on Wednesday, premiering at 10 p.m. ET/PT. In the launch episode, “Cupid Ye,” Cartman (voiced by Trey Parker) is jealous of the friendship that has developed between Kyle (Matt Stone) and Tolkien (Adrien Beard) … and decides to do something about it. Check out the sneak peek clip below!
All-new episodes will be available to stream in HD on southpark.cc.com, cc.com and the Comedy Central App post-premiere.
Comedy Central’s Emmy and Peabody Award-winning series South Park launched on August 13, 1997, and is based on the VHS-shared, animated short entitled The Spirit of Christmas. Co-creator Trey Parker and Matt Stone also executive produce the series with Anne Garefino and Frank C. Agnone II. Eric Stough, Adrien Beard, Bruce Howell and Vernon Chatman are producers. Christopher Brion is the Creative Director of South Park Digital Studios.
Mike Judge’s Beavis and Butt-head will bring the unruly reboot to broadcast for the first time, launching Feb. 8 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT. Season 1 episodes of the new series will roll out weekly on Wednesdays after South Park, making Comedy Central a midweek adult animation destination.
From Emmy Award-winning creator Mike Judge and MTV Entertainment Studios, the new iteration featuring the iconic duo’s first original episodes in over 10 years originally premiered August 4, 2022 on Paramount+, following the critically acclaimed Paramount+ original film Beavis and Butt-head Do the Universe.
Created and voiced by Judge, Beavis and Butt-head originated in Judge’s 1992 short Frog Baseball, which aired on MTV’s Liquid Television. The original Beavis and Butt-Head series ran for seven seasons from March 8, 1993 to Nov. 28, 1997, and was revived in 2011 with an eighth season airing on MTV. Mike Judge’s Beavis and Butt-Head is executive-produced by Judge, Lew Morton and Michael Rotenberg, and Chris Prynoski, Shannon Prynoski, Ben Kalina and Antonio Canobbio for Titmouse.
