Comedy Central announced today that South Park has been renewed for seasons 21, 22, and 23. A new deal was reached with creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone for a total of 30 episodes over the three seasons, which ensures the animated comedy will be airing new content through at least 2019.

South Park is the longest-running primetime cable scripted series on television, and with today's extension it will surpass the 300-episode milestone. Parker and Stone have written and directed every episode since its inception in 1997, and will continue to do so as the show heads towards 20+ years on the air.

Season 19 will premiere on Wednesday, September 16.
