South Park - Pandemic Special



Rarely does Randy find an event, joyful or tragic, that he can't spin into some type of special. His new strain is where the episode's title come from and is a manifestation of corporate greed, tragedy profiteering, and empty signaling from brands. (We also find out that he played a key role in kicking off the pandemic that involves bestiality and a mind-altering substance-fueled bender with Mickey Mouse.)




South Park - Pandemic Special



With big fans around the world calling for the show's return for months, South Park is finally coming back in just over two weeks time with a surprise one-hour special focusing specifically on the coronavirus pandemic. For the past several years, new seasons of South Park had been premiering at the tail end of September, but there had still been no word from the network about when their flagship series would return in 2020. As revealed in a new trailer for the hour-long South Park episode, dubbed "The Pandemic Special," the episode will premiere on Wednesday, Sept. 30 on Comedy Central.


The trailer teases that the episode will address "2020 problems," and some additional details about the hour-long special have also been revealed. According to the official logline, "Randy comes to terms with his role in the outbreak as the on-going pandemic presents continued challenges to the citizens of South Park. The kids happily head back to school but nothing resembles the normal that they once knew; not their teachers, not their homeroom, not even Eric Cartman."


The episode, much like our absurd, reckless real life, finds the kids heading back to school, and Randy (Parker) taking advantage of the pandemic in, yes, "a pandemic special." The brief, 30 second teaser, like many of the recent episodes, seems to be in dialogue with South Park itself as a relevant institution of satire. Do we need a South Park "pandemic special"? Do we need South Park anymore? Based on this teaser, it looks like it's gonna have its cake and eat it too, and it just might give you 60 minutes of relentless, irreverent, of-the-moment jokes in the meantime.


The preview of the special shows Cartman worrying about going back to school, Randy Marsh trying to cash in on a "pandemic special," Kyle dealing with social distancing and a classroom peppered with the protective cubicles that have become the modus operandi across schools and beyond.


The official synopsis for the special is: Randy Marsh comes to terms with his role in the COVID-19 outbreak as the on-going pandemic presents continued challenges to the citizens of South Park. The kids happily head back to school but nothing resembles the normal that they once knew; not their teachers, not their homeroom, not even Eric Cartman.


Although the episode material is new to South Park, the creative team behind the pandemic special remains the same. Creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone will write and executive produce the special, just like every single episode of South Park since 1997.


South Park finished up its most recent season last December, and a premiere date for Season 24 has yet to be announced. The pandemic special is a standalone episode and will not mark the beginning of Season 24. Comedy Central recently renewed South Park through Season 26, doubling down on their adult animated content and late night shows.


The episode is about what the characters in South Park would do in the pandemic. The special includes almost everything that has happened this year including the virus, controversial events here in the United States, and events even in other parts of the world.


Randy is 45 years old, and like Parker's father, is a geologist, making his first appearance in the series while monitoring a seismometer in the episode "Volcano". He was depicted to work at the South Park Center for Seismic Activity, and was later shown to work for the U. S. Geological Survey. He was briefly fired from his geologist job near the end of the 12th season, and quit briefly during the end of the 14th season, but has since been-rehired both times. He also serves on the city council, specializing in the town's parks and public grounds. A recurring character trait of Randy's is his being prone to overreacting and obsessively seizing upon irrational ideas and fads, whether by himself or as part of a large contingent of the town's adult population. Though the show frequently depicts him to be a moderate to heavy drinker, numerous episodes have dealt with Randy's belligerent and negligent behavior brought upon by his severe intoxication. 041b061a72
