South Park S25E04: Can Mr. Mackey & A VHS Copy of Red Dawn Save Them?

After taking a break last week (but offering up come classy, "chocolatey" goodness to tide viewers over), Stan, Kyle, Kenny, Cartman, and the rest of South Park return this week- but what is it that they're returning to? Apparently, Mr. Mackey is looking to take everyone "Back to The Cold War" in an episode of Trey Parker and Matt Stone's long-running animated series where the fate of the very world may just rest in Butter's hands. Or not. We do know that the episode involves a dressage championship, way too many Nuclear Emergency Drills, and a very concerned PC Principal.

"To be halfway done with 'South Park' is a great accomplishment — we can't lie," said Stone and Parker in a statement when the premiere date was revealed. "For the past 25 years, multiple generations of fans have grown up enchanted by the outlandishly funny and subversive world that Matt and Trey have created with "South Park"," said Chris McCarthy, president and CEO of ViacomCBS Media Networks and MTV Entertainment Studios. "As part of our expansive new deal, we are thrilled to continue our partnership with them for many more seasons of "South Park" on Comedy Central and many more made-for-streaming South Park exclusive events on Paramount Plus."
