Covid-19 is a dangerous, worldwide pandemic, but on top of that, it’s also a huge bummer. What the world needs now more than anything is laugh. Luckily, the town of South Park is getting together to give the nation a much-needed chuckle with the South Park: Pandemic Special.

Stan, Kyle, Kenny, and of course, Cartman, will be dedicating an entire hour to offering much-needed relief in the only way they know how: the best cringe humor that’s ever existed on cable. Despite the obvious fears, the kids are going back to school (though not without full body shields). Will the boys survive the pandemic, or will it finally claim the rest of the town that isn’t Kenny?

Here’s everything you need to know to stream South Park: The Pandemic Special.
