South Park fans worried the show would end because of Matt Stone and Trey Parker's burgeoning Broadway career can rest easy. Not only is Park returning to Comedy Central on Oct. 5 for season thirteen, but the pair signed a new deal with the network that will keep the show on-air through 2013.

It was thought that South Park could conceivably go off the air following the June half-season finale, "You're Getting Old," but it appears Cartman, Kenny and the boys have enough adventures left in the tank to last another couple of seasons. At least.
