This just may be the best news you'll read all day — South Park has been renewed for three more seasons on Comedy Central, as reported by Deadline.

The animated series, which first aired in August of 1997, has been one of the most highly-rated comedy series for years. The three new seasons will consist of 30 total episodes and will run through 2022, reaching a total of over 320 episodes. It's the longest-running cartoon series following The Simpsons. 

“South Park is the greatest comedy in the history of television, unmatched in its satirical strength and cultural relevancy and it shows no signs of slowing down,” said Kent Alterman, president of Comedy Central and several other channels in a statement. "We'll do as many seasons as they would like."

“Apparently, our efforts to get our own show cancelled have fallen short,” added creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone. “Luckily, we love Comedy Central and Kent and our staff so we are looking forward to new cancellation opportunities in the next few years.”

Season 23 is just two weeks shy, airing on Sept. 25.
