South Park season 26 premiere details: A trip to Hollywood?
Given the show's sarcastic approach to nearly all themes and all sectors of commerce, entertainment, and media, it is not surprising to see another episode centered on Hollywood. The premiere of the 26th season will see Craig and Scott pitch their movie idea to Kyle, according to the official description of the episode.
It will also see a brewing jealousy between Cartman and Kyle. A preview has also been released for the upcoming episode, which hints at what to expect from the new season with a 15-second glimpse at the world of South Park.
While the clip isn't exactly explanatory enough, it does hint at how the show plans to maintain its consistency, both in terms of characterization and writing style.
The official description for the upcoming episode of the show reads:
"Cartman is jealous of the friendship that’s developed between Kyle and Tolkien and decides to do something about it."
It should be noted that Trey Parker has written and directed this episode.
