SOUTH PARK Finally Misses a Deadline Due to Power Outage; New Episode Will Not Air Tonight

     October 16, 2013


It’s no secret that South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone craft each new episode from inception to air in six days time, delivering each installment within hours of airtime; the documentary chronicling their process is even called The Making of South Park: 6 Days to Air.  Well for the first time in the show’s history, Parker and Stone have missed that deadline due to a power outage in the studio, and a new episode of South Park will not be airing this evening.  Hit the jump for more, including when you can see “Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers.”

south-park-gothOn Tuesday night, South Park Studios lost power and Parker and Stone were unable to complete the newest episode, “Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers,” in time for tonight’s air date.  Parker released the following statement on the show’s website:

“It sucks to miss an air date but after all these years of tempting fate by delivering the show last minute, I guess it was bound to happen.”

Comedy Central will instead be airing an encore of “Scott Tenorman Must Die” tonight, and “Goth Kids 3” will air next Wednesday.  Ironically, the production switched up its schedule this year in order to lessen the stress on Parker and Stone.  Traditionally, each season was broken up into two batches of 7 episodes that were produced and aired in the spring and fall, making the duo go through the rigorous process twice each season.  This year, the 17th season is only comprised of 10 episodes that are produced and will air straight through.

Missing tonight’s deadline is not the end of the world, and as Parker said, this was bound to happen at some point; it’s a miracle they made it this long without missing a deadline.  Hopefully “Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers” will be worth the wait when it airs next week.  In the meantime, enjoy Cartman being classically terrible tonight in “Scott Tenorman Must Die.”  If you’ve never seen The Making of South Park: 6 Days to Air, I highly suggest you check it out.
