Between the new storytelling style and the video games, is this the start of a new phase? A few years ago, with “You’re Getting Old,” people thought that was the end of South Park.
PARKER: We kind of did too, for a little bit.
STONE: I think we’ll probably do semi-serialization for the rest of it. Cat’s out of the bag. We can’t go back. If it’s the right thing for the end of the story, we let some things hang.
PARKER: We also know that this [he points at the video game] might be the future of South Park. This might be where things are going.
STONE: I think in 20 years, 10 years, people will be playing more. That convergence of entertainment, whether it’s VR or a more immersive thing. The more you get in it, the more you watch Pew Die Pie, and people watch Pew Die Pie play, and you watch E-sports. You watch young people, and the way they engage with something – sh–, maybe that is the future of South Park.
