In these pandemic times, “South Park” will have another pandemic special.
On March 10, the long-running, primetime animated Comedy Central series is returning with its second COVID-19 episode.
Titled “South ParQ Vaccination Special,” the one-hour event will follow South Park citizens as they desperately clamor for the much-coveted COVID-19 vaccine. Adding more grist to the mill is a new militant group who tries to stop the boys from getting their teacher vaccinated.
“We will be herd,” the show’s official Twitter account posted to announce the episode.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention describes “herd immunity” as enough people in a community being protected from getting a disease because they’ve already had the disease or because they’ve been vaccinated.
“South ParQ Vaccination Special” will air March 10 at 8 p.m. EDT on Comedy Central. It be will simulcast on MTV2 and then air again at 9 p.m. and 10 p.m.
