And the producers of the show are not going to diverge from this strategy. They have recently confirmed that the premiere episode of season 20 would focus on the current U.S. presidential elections, taking advantage of the race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
South Park Season 20 Episode 1
Despite hopes of the episode getting good TRPs, the showrunners are concerned about viewers’ reaction to the episode. The premier episode of last installment too focused on Donald Trump, who was just a marginal candidate then. He later went on to become Hillary Clinton’s primary rival.

Producers of the show say that they featured Donald Trump in the last season just because he was making noise then. They have no idea what to do with his character now. The only idea that they divulged that they might use Trump’s Canadian character to comment on the ongoing campaign.
Aside from using this issue, the team would also focus on the game “Pokemon Go”, which has recently caused mass hysteria. It is a very safe bet to predict that they would use this theme in some way or the other.
The show would start airing on 14th of September this month. Earlier, the show used to be split in two parts. This wouldn’t be the case this installment. The show would be aired in a single part. Ten episodes would be aired in total, which would be aired in a span of ten weeks.
Speculations are, PC Principal might still be in the show. The last episode of the last installment tackled gun awareness and political issues. The whole season last year was about the process of renewal and rebuilding of a town.
It is also being said that installment 20 might be the last season of “South Park” but it has already been confirmed by the team that the show is renewed through installment 23 in 2019. Michele Ganeless, president of Comedy Central network announced that installment 21, 22 and 23 would air in 2019 and would make 30 episodes in total.
He also said that “South Park” is very much relevant to the channel and production of more seasons is necessary.
Don’t forget to watch “South Park” on 14th September.
