Comedy Central has announced an epic “South Park” marathon that will air prior to the premier episode of the show’s 21st season.

The marathon — which will mark the show’s 20th anniversary — will begin on Wednesday, September 6th and air 254 episodes for 127 hours, pausing only for new episodes of “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.”

The show’s co-creators, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, are planning to revert back to their usual one-off episode format after toying with continuous story arcs for the last few years.

“This season I want to get back to Cartman dressing up like a robot and [screwing] with Butters,” Parker told The L.A. Times in June. “Because to me that’s the bread and butter of South Park: kids being kids and being ridiculous and outrageous and not ‘did you see what Trump did last night?’ Because I don’t give a [shit] anymore. We could probably put up billboards – ‘Look what we’re going to do to Trump next week!’ – and get crazy ratings. But I just don’t care … Matt and I hated it, but we got stuck in it somehow.”

The latest “South Park” video game, “The Fractured Butthole” will be released in October:
