Cartman and Butters set out to thwart an invasion by China in an all-new episode of South Park, premiering Wednesday, Oct. 8 at 10 p.m. ‘The China Problem’ kicks off a slate of seven new installments of Comedy Cental’s long-running animated comedy, which enters its 12th season fresh off its Emmy win for the three-part ‘Imaginationland’ saga.
After watching the intimidating opening ceremonies of the recent Olympic Games, Cartman understands that the Chinese are only just days away from invading the United States. While the rest of the American people are haunted by the memory of a recent tragic event, only Butters will stand with Cartman as he confronts the Chinese.
Launched in 1997, South Park remains the highest-rated series on Comedy Central. The show’s official website, www.southparkstudios.com, is hosting ‘Six Days to South Park,’ a behind-the-scenes mini-doc depicting how the series’ topical episodes are made from start to finish in under a week.
