South Park: The End of Obesity will premiere in the US on May 24, before arriving in Europe and other international territories a day later.

In the trailer for the special, Cartman is told by a doctor that “drastic” action is required in order to bring his weight down, before learning about the drug Ozempic. When Cartman is denied access to the medicine, he recruits Kyle, Stan, Butters and Kenny for help.

Cartman is then seen lamenting his size in the mirror as his friends run experiments in lab coats and goggles, preparing him to take the drugs. “We’ve been out navigating the American healthcare system,” says Butters. “I almost died!”

Paramount+ has released six other South Park streaming exclusive events: South Park: Post COVID, South Park: Post COVID: The Return of COVID, South Park: The Streaming Wars, South Park: The Streaming Wars Part 2, South Park: Joining the Panderverse, and the recently released South Park (Not Suitable For Children).

In Not Suitable For Children, the satirical animation took aim at Logan Paul and his Prime energy drink.

The special sees character Clyde Donovan sit in front of his computer as he watches Logan LeDouche – an influencer who is clearly a parody of the YouTuber – promote his energy drink “Cred”, with packaging similar to Paul’s brand.

“When I feel like I can’t be myself, that’s when I need a hydration drink that will pick me up. That’s when I need Cred,” says LaDouche as he promotes his product on a YouTube parody.

“It’s the coolest sports drink in the world! Cred is 100 per cent sugar free. Cred has electolytes so you can ride your bike. And also Cred has more vitamin A than your body can possibly ever use.

“Drink Cred or you’re a piece of shit,” LeDouche adds before jumping out of a plane in a stunt similar to Paul’s marketing techniques for Prime.

In August of 2021, South Park was renewed through to 2027, which will take the long-running animated show from creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone through to at least its 30th season.

Previously, Elon Musk heaped praised South Park‘s Joining The Panderverse special, which mocked Disney for “pandering” to audiences with token diversity.
