Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny are heading back to Paramount Plus with an all new exclusive event, South Park: The Streaming Wars. This is the latest South Park special that is playing on the streaming service, following 2021’s South Park: Post COVID and South Park: Post COVID: The Return of COVID.
South Park: The Streaming Wars comes as South Park celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2022 and, like the long-running show's previous Paramount Plus special, is a two-parter, with Part 2 also now available on the streaming service.
Here is everything we know about South Park: The Streaming Wars.
How to watch South Park: The Streaming Wars
As a Paramount Plus exclusive event, watching South Park: The Streaming Wars requires a Paramount Plus subscription. You can sign up for either the ad-supported or ad-free plans of Paramount Plus to watch the streaming service’s original content, which includes these South Park specials. A seven-day free trial of Paramount Plus is also available.
UK fans (and others throughout Europe) should be able to watch South Park: The Streaming Wars, as well as the other South Park specials, now that Paramount Plus is available.
When is the South Park: The Streaming Wars Part 2 release date?
South Park: The Streaming Wars Part 2 dropped on Paramount Plus worldwide on Wednesday, July 13. The complete Streaming Wars saga is now available to watch on the streaming service.
What is the South Park: The Streaming Wars plot?
Here is the official synopsis of South Park: The Streaming Wars.
"In South Park: The Streaming Wars, Cartman locks horns with his mom in a battle of wills, while an epic conflict unfolds and threatens South Park’s very existence."
That’s not a whole lot to go off on, but we can assume that the boys and the many other popular characters are going to get in some crazy hijinks.
It'll also be interesting to see if this is a one-off special or if it will lead into the already announced fourth special like the South Park: Post COVID did.
