Comedy Central’s South Park is finally back with a brand new season! South Park season 26 premiered on Feb. 8. And if the season opener is of any indication, we are in for a wild new season that is not holding back, but when has South Park ever pulled any punches? So when will the ride continue? When is South Park season 26 episode 2 coming out?

In case you missed the season 26 premiere, you can quickly catch up ahead of episode 2 if you head on over to HBO Max to stream it. Fans thought the new season would stream on Paramount+, but the streamer is only home to South Park specials, such as South Park The Streaming Wars and South Park Post Covid, not regular episodes. To catch new episodes, you’ll have to turn to HBO Max.

Not only are seasons 1-25 available to stream on HBO Max, but new episodes for season 26 will go to HBO Max the day (Thursdays) after they air on Comedy Central. If you don’t have cable, you can still stream the episodes as they air the service you have replaced cable with, such Philo and Sling TV.

When is South Park season 26 episode 2 coming out?

South Park season 26 premiered on Feb. 8, so you are only one episode behind. New episodes, including South Park season 26 episode 2, titled “The Worldwide Privacy Tour,” will drop on Comedy Central on Wednesday, Feb. 15, at 10 p.m. ET. Again, if you can’t watch at this time, jump on over to HBO Max on Thursday to stream it.

Now, we’re not sure how many episodes season 26 will include. The longest season has featured 18 episodes, but this was way back in 1998. Since then, there have been as few as 10 episodes, or even less if the season only features specials. That said, our best guess is that season 26 will feature anywhere between 8-10 episodes. As soon as we learn more, we’ll update this post.
