'South Park' Fans, We Have Some Bad News — Your Favorite Show Is Leaving Hulu

By

The 300th episode of South Park aired on Oct. 9, 2019, making it one of the oldest-running animated sitcoms out there. Created in 1997 by Matt Stone and Trey Parker, the program amassed unprecedented popularity among young adults, and it's easy to see why. 

The show makes for an attractive asset for every streaming platform. After weeks of intense bidding, it was announced  on Oct. 29 that HBO Max will acquire the show. 

Hold on for a second. What's happening? Is South Park leaving Hulu?

The second half of 2019 marked the emergence of a new trend among streaming platforms and more traditional production studios. As Bloomberg's Nick Turner prompts, an increasing number of viewers opt to watch television shows online as opposed to traditional broadband platforms. To cater to this tendency, larger companies and disruptors alike have turned to invest in streaming services. Long story short: television sets will soon become the stuff of feverous, nostalgia-fuelled longing.
