The actually killed Kenny! Again!
In the new, hour-long “South Park: Post Covid” special, which debuted this week, the show jumps far into the future, with its characters all grown-up adults.
When Kyle gets a call informing him that his old friend Kenny, who has since become a millionaire scientist, has died, he and his friends go back to South Park for the funeral.
Once there, they discover that Kenny’s death due to the new COVID Delta+ Rewards variant was actually a result of their late friend’s search for the origins of the coronavirus.
They later find a hidden flash drive in Kenny’s body onto which he’s recorded a video explaining that he had attempted to go back in time to prevent the pandemic from ever happening.
He also blames his “three d**khead friends, Stan, Kyle and Cartman,” who “ruined everything when they let COVID break up their friendship and become argumentative, combative, pessimistic a**holes.”
That’s when the three surviving friends admit, “Let’s face it, guys, we killed Kenny.”
“South Park: Post Covid” is the first in a string of 14 planned specials, ordered by Paramount+ earlier this year, along with a renewal of the show through season 30.
