    The foul-mouthed cartoon characters of Comedy Central's "South Park" have turned into television mainstays — and they'll be sticking around at least through 2019.

    Comedy Central on Wednesday announced a three-year deal to keep the series going, with the team of Trey Parker and Matt Stone continuing to write, direct and edit every episode. Parker and Stone started the series in 1997.

    The deal extends "South Park" through a 23rd season with 304 original episodes, the network said.
