Comedy Central has extended the run of its animated comedy South Park, renewing the series for three additional seasons - ensuring it will be on the air through 2016. The show premiered in 1997 and this renewal will see it mark its 20th season five years from now.

"COMEDY CENTRAL has been our home for 15 years and we love working there," said Parker and Stone in a press release. "'South Park' is a blast and we can't wait to make more."

New episodes of South Park begin tonight.
