In the hour-long special called The Pandemic Episode, we’ll see Randy dealing with his role in the COVID-19 outbreak as the pandemic reaches the citizens of South Park. Eric Cartman and the rest of the kids head back to school, but their new normal is anything but normal.
While the trailer shows the visual gag of the school surrounding each kids’ desk in clear plastic barriers as an extra precaution, that’s not actually a bad idea.
South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone will write and executive produce the special.
The Pandemic Special episode airs on Comedy Central on Sept. 30.
