Leave it for South Park to give us some much-needed humor during Universal epidemic.

Comedy Central released a new trailer on Tuesday for an upcoming South Park episode, promising to show all sorts of “2020 problems” that plague South Park.

In a special hour called The Pandemic Episode, we will see Randy dealing with his role in the outbreak of COVID-19 as the epidemic reaches the citizens of South Park. Eric Cartman and the rest of the children go back to school, but their new normal is anything but normal.

However the trailer illustrates the visual gaps of the school surrounding each children’s desk in clear plastic barriers as an extra precaution, which is not really a bad idea.

South Park producers Trey Parker and Matt Stone will write and executive produce specials.

The Epidemic Special episode airs on Comedy Central on September 30.
