South Park could end with a movie

The sad reality is this: South Park will eventually end. However, don't expect Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny to go away with a black screen for 15 seconds or be thrown into a Latham, Massachusetts, jail. Creator Trey Parker is leaning towards a more glamorous farewell: a sendoff on the big screen.

"We talked about maybe some day doing a movie to sort of end it all, and that seems like the best idea," Parker told The Los Angeles Times. "That's been a big thought to do the last show as a movie."

The foul-mouthed kids have graced the big screen before, courtesy of 1999's "f***"-filled South Park: Bigger, Louder, & Uncut, but that gem was merely a way for Parker to tap into his love of show tunes and built on an already passionate fan base. The series film finale would have to be the mother lode of all genius South Park ideas--and Parker and cocreator Matt Stone already thought they had that very idea.

"We came up with this pretty good idea for a movie, and then of course what happened was we got in the middle of a South Park run, and were completely out of ideas," explained Parker. "And we were like, well, we've got to use the movie idea. And that became [the three-part episode] 'Imaginationland.'"

As of now, there doesn't appear to be any end on the horizon for South Park, so don't expect a movie from Parker and Stone any time soon--be it South Park-related or not. The duo's last film, Team America, ended up becoming a much more arduous task than initially thought and "killed the movie spirit" in them.

No complaints here if we have to just endure more South Park instead.

I think a movie would be an awesome way to end with a bang. I hope it doesn't end yet though.

South Park is one of the best shows out there, simply because it has found a formula that works. It deals with world issues and developments in celebrity life and technology and uses it to their advantage, so at the end of the day they will never run out of brilliant new ideas. Whilst it may not be the most popular of series, I think everyone will remember South Park fondly, unlike shows such as The Simpsons which went stale towards the end. The idea that Imaginationland almost became a film was a great thing to hear but now I can't wait to see what else they can come up with. Keep it going.

South Park isn't done yet. First they have a contract until 2011 leading them into the 15th Season of the show and secondly South Park is one of those rare shows which doesn't go downhill unlike The Simpsons and The Chaser's War On Everything which have, South Park still has more issues and society to have a go at. In my opinion the creators might not renew the contract, do a movie and go out in style like that- But that's just my opinion-might not happen

It's funny how TudorRose keeps popping up to comment, he/she must be a very very big fan and supporter of the show to comment so much and read the article and all the comments! Thanks TudorRose for your support of South Park! Right on!

I love South Park... I think that South Park may be one of the smartest shows on tv right now... Once you get past the fact that its a crudely drawn cartoon with crude language. You come to realize that its maybe the most topical show on tv with a hidden life lesson in each episode. I believe in the show so much that most episodes I will let my two 8 year olds watch on DVR (of course after I have watched it first... There are after all still some episodes even to crude for me to let them watch... Lol)

That would be a great way to go, before the show goes to the pits, you know this season hasn't been all that great....

Yes, Kenny has to die, its part of the show! But most of all, South Park isn't done by a long shot. Its still funny and original and I don't want it too end! But if it should, a movie would be a great way to bow out. It's what the boys and the fans deserve.

the first thing that popped up on my head was: will Kenny die in it?

Matt and Trey have parodied so many things in popular culture, its hard to imagine them running out of ideas. But like all good things, the end will come. Hopefully, South Park will wrap before it gets long in the tooth. I think it will be a while before we hear Cartman say, for the last time, "Screw you guys, I'm going home".

South Park is still on? I thought they already made a movie.

South Park should never end, really. There is always something happening in the world for them to parody, and it doesn't seem like it takes long for them to make an episode.

Oh my goodness! I love South Park. I've been an avid fan for years.. I really hope that either the show ends as great as it is or not end at all just yet. :)

I haven't watched an episode since Chef died and every before that I didn't go out of my way to catch an episode. Matt and Trey did a good job of getting rich off an idea that I didn't think would last 4 seasons, considering they "ran out of ideas", in 1999 says a lot.

If the make a movie they need to bring back the character's they've dropped over the years. I.e. Mr. Hankey, Timmy, Dr. Mephisto.

I think the reason that shows like South Park, the Simpsons, Family Guy, and King of the hill have lasted so long is because, unlike other shows, they don't have a plot (except for the occasional two-parters). That way you don't have to worry about missing something important in the last episode. I for one hope South Park atleasts lasts a few more years.

I stopped being able to follow the show after the muslims threatened to kill them for the islamic episode. I think it's probably because their balls fell off.

I hope the show sticks around for a few more years before we get our movie finale. The seasons are relatively shorter than an average tv show (14 instead of 22). Technically speaking, the show is still quite young. It's not even at 200 episodes yet!

I'd love to see an episode where the boys are grown up. That could be quite hilarious.

From what I've heard, SP has a contract through 2011, up to season 15 right now. Not sure if it goes beyond that, but they could always get even more season after that. I agree that it should definitely end before it gets bad like The Simpsons and a movie would be a great way to go ut.

The movie is called "South Park: Bigger, LONGER, and Uncut".

I hate to think of the end of my favorite show ever but when they go out, I do hope it will be with a bang. A movie sounds like a great idea!

I think it has a good few seasons left. A movie send off would be awesome though, the first is great.

I can see myself watching SP for numerous seasons to come, but yeah a movie would truly be a great way to end the series. Imagenationland is the best long length animation feature there is. Hopefully they're still going to make many seasons before it's all over.

I don't want it to end anytime soon, but if it has to end then I think a movie is a good idea. They can get away w/ much more in a movie compared to TV. I never saw the last movie in the theatre. I might actually go check this one out though.

To be honest I think these guys need to figure out when to call it quits. Not because the show is going down hill, far from it infact. But they still have a good thing going and hould finish it while it is still at its best. Make the movie in the next couple of years if you ask me boys!

I think another movie would be great for SP, just don't let it be another musical. Right now SP still has that fire and whatever they decide to do, it'll be the right choice.

I don't want "South Park" to end up like "The Simpsons," so the sooner Matt and Trey decide to move on, the better. It's amazing that there's so many prime-time cartoons from the '90s that are still producing first-run episodes...

i so agree, simpsons needed to end about 5 seasons ago, wher as i hope south park carries on for a while longer

Unlike Simpsons, South Park hasn't went down hill. It's still good. So another movie to end it would be good. Should've did that with The Simpsons.
