Can't be long now. I see it airs in the US on September 25th.
It should air on Comedy Central here a few days later. Only 10 episodes in this series though. No lengthy breaks this time!

I'd forgotten all about the new series

I regularly watch a lot of old episodes, but the fact a new series is due just skipped my mind completely !

I had hoped that a longer run in the Autumn (albeit it as a full season, rather than the second half of a season) would mean that we'd be treated to another South Park Christmas Special. These are some of the best episodes, and Matt and Trey mention on the commentaries that they always push the boat out for these. Woodland Critter Christmas being a particularly shining example.

Unfortunately, it looks like the season will end in November so I guess a Christmas special would be premature.

I think only if we initiate a blood orgy would they (or, rather Comedy Central) be persuaded to do another Christmas episode

South Park is one of those rare animated shows that seems to get better every season. Can't wait for it to return

I wonder why there have no break this year? ie 7 episodes in spring and Autumn. I have heard it will be with us until Season 20

I'm glad there's no break this year, it's a pity there's only 10 episodes though.

I think the reason for the delay was due to Matt and Trey promoting 'The Book of Mormon' in the UK

I'm glad they've had a short break from the show. Last season was pretty ropey, for me. It felt like they were concentrating on Book of Mormon too much and couldn't produce a decent season of South Park as well. Hopefully the upcoming season 17 will be a big improvement.

Anyone else noticed they haven't bleeped the swearing in this series. I've heard swearing before, but not on a premiere.

Ep1 was pretty poor imo.
Atleast last nights was an improvment on that.

I've been watching at US pace and so far I've enjoyed Episodes 1 and 3. Didn't find the second one that funny apart from the ending.

Any episode involving Cartman and race issues is always quality.

First two episodes were boring and messy. The ideas are there but just not executed very well imo.

First 2 episodes were pretty average, but World War Zimmerman was brilliant. Cartman and his race episodes are always gold.

Unfortunately, this week's new episode won't be airing in the US tonight as there was a power cut at the studio last night and they weren't able to complete the episode in time.

Why does the DS article say it's the first time in 13 years, when as far as I know, it's the first time it's ever happened?

It is the first time it's ever happened - but then the article does say that ..

However, South Park Studios experienced a three-hour power cut on Tuesday (October 15) and the episode failed to hit its deadline for the first time in South Park's 240-show history

Really? I thought ep3 was pretty dire. If I wasn't such a fan of the show I could have easily turned it off.

Could you not just read two posts above yours?

Might be due to what was written in post #18, it seems ep#4 only airs in the States tonight, hence the delay over here...
