South Park makes its long-awaited return to Comedy Central this Wednesday, September 26 and judging by season 22 promo clip released yesterday, coupled with the strange behavior of Trey Parker and Matt Stone on Twitter as of late, it would appear the show’s creators might just get their wish after all. The upcoming season might be the show’s last.
Over the past few weeks, Parker and Stone have been responding to fans and sharing strange videos on Twitter, each one concluding with the same message, “#cancelsouthpark.”

Whether or not this is a clever marketing ploy to generate hype for the upcoming season or not, tomorrow night’s episode will undoubtedly spark a pretty heated conversation about gun control and the normalcy of school shootings.

The Greatest South Park Episodes
A majority of South Park‘s episodes revolve around Cartman being a jerk and getting himself and others into trouble, which is exactly why this list wouldn’t be complete without “Tsst.” In this episode, Mrs. Cartman is finally ready to seek help with Eric’s disobedience, but when both ‘Super Nanny’ and ‘Nanny 911’ fail to make a difference, Mrs. Cartman begins to lose all hope. In a last-ditch effort, Mrs. Cartman hires Cesar Millan (The Dog Whisperer), who quickly teaches her how to control Eric’s behavior and become the dominant member of the house. Whenever Eric is being difficult, Cesar instructed her to pinch him on the neck and make the “Tsst” sound. As you might imagine, being treated like a dog and embarrassed by his mother pushes Cartman over the edge, making for one of the most hilarious episodes of all-time.
