Paramount+ revealed a first look at the service’s upcoming exclusive original “South Park” event, titled SOUTH PARK: POST COVID, which will premiere on Paramount+ in the U.S. on Thursday, Nov. 25. In SOUTH PARK: POST COVID, we’ll find out the answer to the question: what happened to the children who lived through the pandemic? Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny survived, but will never be the same post COVID.

This special event is the first of two exclusive South Park events that will be coming to Paramount+ this year, with the second coming at some point in December.
