South Park: The End of Obesity Special Reveals First Look at Thinner Cartman

South Park has unveiled a first look at a thinner Cartman for its upcoming special. The MTV Entertainment Studios produced South Park: The End of Obesity special premieres on Paramount+ on May 24.

South Park made the reveal on its official X (formerly known as Twitter) account. The posted images showcase the effect of weight-loss drugs on several characters, including Cartman, who now appears visibly thinner. The End of Obesity's synopsis reads, "The advent of new weight-loss drugs has a huge impact on everyone in South Park. When Cartman is denied access to life-changing medicine, the kids jump into action." The upcoming South Park special is a commentary on the contemporary trend of recommending weight-loss medication, such as the much-publicized Ozempic, to tackle society's current obesity epidemic.

The Streaming Wars and The Streaming Wars Part 2 premiered in 2022 while Joining the Panderverse and (Not Suitable for Children) both debuted a year later.
