Fans of South Park will be relieved to know that the long-running animated series will be sticking around for a while yet. Comedy Central has confirmed that show creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone are signed on to the series through 2013. That will keep the show on the air for at least Seasons 16 and 17.

This news comes as South Park gets ready to resume the second half of its 15th season, which kicks off a run of seven new episodes starting Wednesday, October 5 at 10:00pm.
