Comedy Central has renewed Trey Parker and Matt Stone‘s South Park for three more seasons, keeping the animated comedy on the air through 2016.
The deal for three additional seasons, which would have cable’s longest-running animated series hitting a 20th season, means Parker and Stone will continue on with the show, continuing to write, direct and edit every episode.
