The boys are back.

"South Park" is returning on September 30 for a hour-long special -- and in what should come as no surprise in 2020, it will be tackling Covid-19.

The episode, titled "The Pandemic Special," will see Stan's father Randy Marsh capitalizing on a growing market for pot for his recreational pot business "Tegridy Farms" as he "comes to terms with his role in the COVID-19 outbreak," Comedy Central said in its news release.

The animated comedy series, from creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker, has not shied away from tackling current events.

The long-running series, which wrapped up its 23rd season last year, first aired on Comedy Central in 1997.

Comedy Central will debut the pandemic-themed episode at 8 p. m. ET.

The episode will be available to stream on South Park Studios, CC. com and the Comedy Central App after it airs on the West Coast.
