'South Park' Renewed for 3 More Years by Comedy Central Through Season 26

'South Park' Renewed for 3 More Years by Comedy Central Through Season 26 "South Park" is sticking around for a few more years. Ahead of its 23rd season, Comedy Central has agreed to a new deal with Matt Stone and Trey Parker to keep the longrunning cartoon for an additional three seasons. That will take "South Park" through Season 26 and 327 episodes. Stone and Parker, as they have since it debuted in 1997, will continue to write, direct and edit every episode. "South Park" is the longest running primetime scripted series on cable and will surpass its 300th episode this season — though that still leaves it some 300 episodes shy (and counting) of that other long-running animated series in "The Simpsons.

That typhoon damaged many houses and electric poles, causing widespread blackouts in the prefecture and triggering criticism and concern about aging infrastructure systems in the country.

Asia's Cold War: Japan on the Front Lines of a U.S.-China Conflict .
The modern Cold War has moved from Europe to Asia, where Japan is posted on the frontier of the U.S. and China's worsening economic and military feud.Tokyo is among Washington's closest foreign allies and has been since the U.S. defeated Japan in World War II, later forging a security treaty that formed a cornerstone of deterrence against advances from the Soviet Union and China—two communist powers who ultimately broke with one another and became entangled in their own feud.
