South Park S25E01: They Gotta Fight for Their Right to "Pajama" Party

The good news? Trey Parker and Matt Stone's Emmy Award-winning South Park returns to Comedy Central this week for its 25th season with the first of six new episodes. The bad news? On the most important day of the year, Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny find their hopes & dreams canceled by an oppressive regime when PC Principal bans the entire 4th-Grade class from "Pajama Day" due to their lack of respect. But while PC Principal isn't looking to back down, neither are Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny. And the only thing scarier than that foursome is when that foursome is on the same page over a common enemy.
