The 17th season of South Park will kick off on Comedy Central on September 25th at 10/9c. Creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker recently decided to switch up the production schedule on South Park to one season of 10 straight episodes per year, instead of splitting seasons up into two halves of 7 episodes that aired in the Spring and Fall. Comedy Central announced today that season 17 will begin on September 25th, and Bill Hader previously told us that he will be working full-time on the South Park writing staff this fall.
Additionally, South Park: The Complete Sixteenth Season will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on September 24th, just in time to catch up for the new season. It includes all 14 episodes of season 16, as well as mini-commentaries on all of the episodes by Stone and Parker and deleted scenes. Hit the jump to read the press release.
