South Park fans are going to have to wait a little longer than they expected for the new season to premiere. 

Originally slated for Aug. 23, season 21 of the popular cartoon will now premiere Sept. 13, according to Comedy Central. 

Along with South ParkBroad City was also pushed to that date for its premiere. 

Creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker have insinuated the upcoming season will get back to basics in that episodes will likely be one-offs, closer to how the show ran for numerous seasons.

For the past few seasons, the show has had an overarching plot, which hit a road bump last year when Donald Trump won the presidency, but the show theme had been mostly planned around a Clinton victory. 

Parker and Stone have also said they plan on laying off Trump jokes this year. 

In addition to the new season, the long-awaited video game South Park: The Fractured But Whole will be released Oct. 17.
