South Park season 26 has now begun on Comedy Central with more episodes of satire, hilarity, and shocking moments (mostly) landing weekly. So far, we've had two stellar outings of the adult animation, with Kanye West and Harry and Meghan being parodied. But what does the rest of the season hold? Well, details are still light but we've rounded up everything known so far about the Trey Parker and Matt Stone show.

If you're looking for how to watch South Park season 26 then you're in the right place. However, given we don't yet know how many episodes the new season will feature, it can be a little hard to work out when it will be released each week. That's where we come in. We've compiled everything we know so far about streaming South Park season 26 wherever you're watching. Read on for our complete guide to the new episodes, from where you can stream them to when exactly they'll be airing.

South Park season 26 episode 3 doesn't actually have a release date yet. We had expected the episode to air in the US on Wednesday, February 22, as this is when previous episodes had aired.

However, no new episode dropped then. There's not an official reason for this, but it's broadcast may have been impacted by the US public holiday for President's Day on February 20.

Given it didn't release, our next best guess is episode 3 will come out on Comedy Central at 10pm ET/PT on Wednesday, March 1. The episodes are also available the next day on HBO Max.

Across the pond, episode 3 will be available a day later, likely on Thursday, March 2 at 10pm GMT on Comedy Central UK. The channel is available via Sky and NOW TV's on-demand service.

If anything is announced, we'll keep you in the loop. But it looks like we'll have to stick to a waiting game for now.
