‘South Park’ First 11 Seasons Headed to Blu-ray in Time for Holidays

By a Front Row Features Staff Reporter

Remember when children were abducted by aliens, killed by falling space stations and befriended by talking feces? Ah, the good old days.  Now you can relive every supernatural, extraordinary and downright insane adventure of Cartman, Kyle, Stan and Kenny when “South Park” Seasons 1-11 arrive this fall for the first time ever on Blu-ray. Seasons 1-5 will arrive in stores Tuesday Nov. 21, and seasons 6-11 will arrive Tuesday Dec 19, just in time for holiday gift-giving.

Each of the first 11 seasons will be released individually in two-disc sets so you can revel in Chef’s Salty Chocolate Balls, Cartman’s Silly Hate Crime and every one of Kenny’s deaths in sparkling high definition.  As an added bonus, the Season 1 Blu-ray set will include uncensored episode commentary by series creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, which was not available on the previously released DVD.

Celebrating its 20th year on air, “South Park” debuted on Comedy Central in 1997 and has won numerous awards, including five Emmys and a Peabody award.  Returning for its 21st season on Wednesday Sept. 13, “South Park” continues to challenge viewers as it holds a mirror up to society with its irreverent brand of social satire.
