WATCH: South Park returns with an episode about school shootings in America

The first clip shows the new series is definitely not pulling any punches

We all know that South Park has had absolutely no problem making jokes about some truly sensitive topics.

From the attacks on Scientology, to Cartman joining NAMBLA, to that time Randy had to apologies to Jesse Jackson after a mix-up on Wheel Of Fortune, to everything to do with the depiction of Muhammad... there has always been something to gasp at, while still laughing.

For the premiere episode of Season 22, the creators are going all out, which can be grasped straight away from the title: 'Dead Kids'.


Yep, they're tackling the school shooting pandemic currently plaguing the United States, and from the first clip below, we can see the full prism of reactions to the horrific events.

As with every episode, the highlight already appears to be Randy's reaction to everything - "Who shot up the school? Was it you??"

The new season kicks off on Comedy Central from Wednesday 26 September.
