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