At today’s WarnerMedia Day, AT&T revealed that all 23 seasons of South Park will become available exclusively on the streamer in June 2020 followed by three brand new seasons, which will debut on HBO Max 24 hours after each episode premieres on Comedy Central.
“South Park is unequivocally among the best—setting the satirical gold standard, with a consistent finger on the comedy pulse,” said Kevin Reilly, chief content officer, HBO Max and president, TBS, TNT, and truTV. “Audiences have connected with Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny – either alive or dead – for over 20 years, and we look forward to connecting these characters to new audiences on HBO Max.”
Streamers have been eager to get rights for legacy TV show. It started with WarnerMedia taking Friends back from Netflix and moving the show to HBO Max, then in June, it was announced that The Office will be moving to NBCU’s Peacock, along with Parks and Recreation. HBO Max then made news when it got exclusive streaming rights to The Big Bang Theory and Netflix soon made their own headlines with the purchase of Seinfeld rights.
