    A trailer for the new season suggests that the show will tackle major news events such as George Zimmerman, Edward Snowden, and Miley Cyrus.

    Comedy Central's series "South Park" will celebrate the beginning of its 17th season by giving fans more access than ever.

    The five-time Emmy Award-winning animated series announced in a press release Friday that it will stream 234 episodes back-to-back with limited commercial interruption in a four-day online marathon leading up to the new season's premiere on Wednesday, September 25 at 10pm ET/PT.

    Fans can enjoy 94 hours, 59 minutes and 40 seconds of "South Park" episodes, the press release said.

    The marathon will include creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker's "Year of the Fan" commentary for the top 15 episodes and the complete "6 Days to Air" documentary that goes behind the scenes of "South Park."

    The 17th season will feature a different production schedule, according to The New York Times. Rather than splitting the year into two "half-seasons" of seven episodes as they have done before (making a total of 14), they will produce a single 10-week run.

    A trailer recently released teasing the new season suggests that the series may tackle controversial news events, showing clips of George Zimmerman, Edward Snowden, and Miley Cyrus.
