Paramount Plus will soon be home to another hilarious South Park special event, titled The Streaming Wars. The third television movie is dropping on June 1 as part of the 14 planned television movie events - and South Park followers everywhere are hyped to see what's going on in the fictional Colorado town this time around. So let's take a look at what the genius creators behind South Park cooked up for us this time...

There is no question South Park may be one of the greatest animated series of all time. Dating all the way back to 1997, the hilarious series follows four friends who live in South Park and just get into a whole bunch of, well, trouble. The already proven successful show has been renewed through 2027, giving the show 30 seasons and now 14 movie events. However, HBO Max is the current home of the beloved cult following series - and Paramount Plus is taking over for the show's 25th season with their $900 million deal for its fourteen hour-long movies. No wonder they keep switching streamers; there's a lot of money on the line for the original creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone.

Following the release of the first two movie installments, Post Covid and Post Covid: Covid ReturnsThe Streaming Wars is expected to be as hilarious and comical as the first two. The description for South Park: The Streaming Wars sees "Eric Cartman locking horns against his mother in a battle of wills, all while an epic conflict unfolds that threatens South Park's existence." So we can only imagine what the gang is going to get themselves into this time. 

In an interview with Matt Stone regarding the raging success of South Park, Stone said, "We do whatever we want, and they are pretty supportive of it." He continued, "We're the luckiest guys in TV in that way." According to Matt Stone, taking the beloved characters and giving them a movie was not a part of the plan for the creators after the South Park movie in 1999 due to the show being so "satisfying." However, with the series's recent deal with Paramount+, fans everywhere will be getting a total of 14 television movies! So make sure to catch the freshly dropped teaser for South Park: The Streaming Wars and get ready for a whole lot of laughs come June 1.
