Fans of “South Park” will be able to watch brand new episodes this September. Comedy Central announced the premiere date for the show’s 22nd season this week, the Emmy and Peabody Award show will return on September 26th.

If you are a fan of South Park, and also headed to San Diego Comic-Con, look for two South Park fan experiences this year. Comedy Central will host Cartman’s Escape Room and the Member Berries Challenge for fans of the long-running animated series. Cartman’s Escape Room is making its worldwide debut at Comic-Con, before the experience hits other major cities to promote the show. Caught in another one of Cartman’s schemes, fans will enter “the most impossible to escape place ever invented” according to the network. Ten South Park fans will have a limited amount of time solve a series of puzzles using what they know about South Park to free themselves. This new South Park activation is free and open to the public at the San Diego Wine Center (200 Harbor Dr. #12, across from the Convention Center) from Thursday, July 19 through Saturday, July 21 from 9:30 a.m.- 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, July 22 from 9:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

South Park’s Member Berries Challenge (booth #23729 inside Convention Center) will transport fans into a 3D replica scene from the iconic “Member Berries” episode. While joining Randy at the Marsh family dinner table, fans will take the Member Berries Challenge – where they will be asked three South Park trivia questions as they sit in Sharon and Shelly’s seats. If the fan answers all three correctly, they will walk away clean and be rewarded with their very own limited edition Member Berry. However, if a fan answers incorrectly, Member Berry juice will spew out of Randy’s mouth on to the losing player. Ponchos and protective glasses will be available, but enter at your own risk of being sticky. In addition to the Member Berries Challenge, fans will also get the opportunity to jump in to other iconic scenes from the series and play other South Park themed games.

The series airs Wednesday nights at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
