HBO Max may have spent a reported $500 million for the exclusive streaming rights to South Park, but ViacomCBS streamer Paramount+ will soon get a boost of exclusive South Park programming beginning this year.

As part of a new six-year deal with ViacomCBS, show creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone will make additional seasons of the irreverent comedy for linear cable network Comedy Central through 2027—which will be its 30th season—and will also develop 14 South Park original movies made exclusively for Paramount+.
