Benzinga – One of the longest-running animated comedies is “South Park,” which premiered in 1997 and is still airing after 25 years.
To kick off its new season, the show tackles one of the hottest topics in the stock market.
What happened: The world of cryptocurrencies was targeted in 2022 by the creators of “South Park” Matt stone And Trey Parker, with a made-for-streaming film making fun of the industry.
To start in 2023, “South Park” will take a critical look at the development of artificial intelligence.
A new trailer for “South Park: Join the Panderverse” teases streaming special about how artificial intelligence has turned the “world” upside down, as The Hollywood Reporter shares.
This streaming special is the fifth of “South Park” and will be broadcast on Paramount+, a streaming platform of Paramount Worldwide (NASDAQ: PARA)(NASDAQ: PARAA).
“Cartman’s deeply disturbing dreams portend the end of the life he knows and loves. The adults of South Park also grapple with their own life decisions as the advent of AI turns their world upside down,” the special’s description reads.
Viewers can stream the special starting October 27 in the United States and Canada, with other territories gaining access later.

Why it’s important: The “South Park” teaser shows characters mentioning that they are becoming different genders, ages and races, which could mean the controversial topic of gender identity could also be addressed in the special.
The 2022 special “The Streaming Wars Part 2” mocked the crypto industry and celebrities used in ads, like Matt Damon.
Instead of promoting Bitcoin (CRYPTO:BTC) in the streaming special, Damon promotes recycled water called Pipi Water.
Cryptocurrency was also targeted in the 2021 “South Park” film special episode “Post COVID.”
“South Park” creators Parker and Stone signed a deal with Paramount in 2021 for six additional seasons of the series, which also includes the addition of 14 films for Paramount+. The duo said new streaming platforms made it easier to create new cinematic content for the series.
