Update from Wednesday, Sept. 24

South Park has always been applauded for being current and with the times.

It looks like the 18th season will be no different.

After clips of Wednesday's premiere were released earlier this week, fans were expecting to see Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III.

But RGIII unfortunately suffered a severe injury, and the team is now being led by Kirk Cousins.

In typical South Park fashion, the show updated its roster for tonight's episode.


Original Text

South Park's 18th season is set to premiere this week, and with the focus on the Washington Redskins' name debate, don't expect any punches to be pulled.

From the looks of it, the premiere episode will revolve around Cartman trademarking the Redskins name (or some variation of it), while owner Dan Snyder and the team dig themselves into a deep hole as they argue to get it back.

As always, expect plenty of lines to be crossed.
