The show revolves around four boys and their adventures in South Park, Colorado. The series parodies celebrities, news events and trending topics.
According to NBC UNIVERSO, viewers have been tuning in for 19 successful seasons to see the crude humor and social satire that has made South Park a staple on Comedy Central. Now, as it debuts in Spanish for the first time in US television on NBC UNIVERSO, Latino audiences will be able to experience the comedy and the satire.
