South Park To Air A Second Pandemic Special Focused On Vaccine

The hour-long episode will debut in March.


Comedy Central's long-running satirical animated show South Park is returning with a second COVID-19 special, and like the first one, it'll be an hour long.

The special is called, "South ParQ The Vaccination Special," and it will air on MTV2 on Wednesday, March 10 at 5 PM PT / 8 PM ET. The first special, "The Pandemic Special," premiered in September 2020 and helped propel the show to its highest ratings since 2013. After the episode premieres on TV, it will be available to stream through and on the Comedy Central app.

A teaser for the Vaccination Special can be seen below, but it doesn't contain any footage.

According to Deadline, the Vaccination Special sees the residents of South Park eager to get their hands on the vaccine to help stop the spread of the virus. However, a new "militant" group" comes to town to try to stop Cartman and crew from getting the vaccine.

South Park isn't the only Hollywood production that is jumping on coronavirus. Comedy movie director Judd Apatow is making a pandemic-inspired movie about actors trapped in hotel quarantine while filming a big-budget movie.
