Best South Park Seasons

The Top Ten

1 Season 8

Easily has the most classic episodes. Hilarious episodes, wonderful characters moments, everything about this season is top-notch.

Good times with weapons, up the down steroid, passion of the Jew, you got f'd in the a, awesome-o, the jeffersons, douche and turd, and Cartman's incredible gift are all debatable top ten episodes. When you have that many classics, how is this season not number one?

Season 8 doesn't have a single weak episode and houses a lot of my favorite
The season even kicks off with my favorite episode of all time

LETS FIGHTING love any way I'm glad season 6 got last it got rid of kenny and kenny dies oh jesus TT-TT that's not funny

2 Season 14

Easily the most hilarious season. I love many things about season 14. The 200-201 two-parter were spectacular specials. The Tale of Scrotie McBoogerBalls, Medicinal Fried Chicken, and You Have 0 Friends are all great episodes, and easily the best in the season. Don't forget The Coon trilogy, which is just a delight. Everything about this season is phenomenal. One of my top seasons.

By far the funniest season. Scrotie, you have 0 friends, crippled summer, poor and stupid, jersey, and a creme fraiche finale. Don't forget 201 and 202 which are missing everywhere but are the best dramatic episodes in the series. There's a decent trilogy with coon and friends and then Medicinal Fried Chicken is my favorite episode ever. Great Randy, Cartman, and Stan episode plus the best example of South Park's brand of commentary. I get that seasons 5-7 had the classic feel but the show only got funnier when most others die from 8-18 when they tried crazier ideas and spoofed current events without being cringy. 14 is definitely when it peaked to me.

We really need to acknowledge a lot of season 14. We all know about the 200 two-parter, the Coon and Friends trilogy, and Medicinal Fried Chicken, but Crippled Summer, You Have 0 Friends, Creme Fraiche, Poor and Stupid, and It's a Jersey Thing were all top-notch.

200 and 201 were my favourite episodes of this season. So much tension, so much creativity and so many returns of old characters; Most notably Tom Cruise, Barbara Streisand and... (the best character in the show) Scott Tenorman.

3 Season 5

Has my favorite episode out of all so far, Butters' Very Own Episode. Plus, there's Scott Tenorman Must Die. So... enough said. Cripple Fight and It Hits The Fan are also pretty funny.

Kenny Dies and Butters own episode are great, but Scott Tenorman Must Die is the absolute best episode in the season and the series

Many classics, many laughs, many messages, its what south park built on, it is what lead the rest of the series to what it is today.

A great season but also a very sad one because Kenny died

4 Season 6

I really enjoyed Professor Chaos, Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society, and the child abduction episode. And Return of The Fellowship of the Ring to the Two Towers was iconic.

Have to put season 5, 6, or 7 at the top. If you want to talk about funny, sharp, classic episodes, I don't know how you can not pick one of these three if you've actually seen every single season. But season 6 is without a doubt the most consistent, only tarnished by the "Red Sleigh Down" and "Fun with Veal" episodes which are completely forgettable.

I could list all the episodes but someone's already done that, so I'll just say it has several of my favorites.

Screw you dude, Red Sleigh Down is an instant classic. Re-watch it if you ever get a taste of humor that is worthy of watching this show

My favorite for sure. Red sleigh down, The biggest douche in the Universe, Aspen, Child Abduction isn't Funny, the intro to Professor Chaos and then the Simpsons Did it, Red hot catholic love. What's not to love about this season!

This season has perhaps 3 of my top 10 episodes all time and probably 5 or 6 of my top 20! (Aspen, Simpsons did it "just close your eyes and suck it through a hose! ", and child abduction isn't funny.)

You have Asspen, Fun With Veal, The Death Camp of Tolerance, and the return of the fellowship of the ring to the two towers, you can’t go wrong

5 Season 1

I don't know if it's just me but I found this season barely tolerable, mediocre is the best word to describe it.
I don't hate this season (it's better than season 2), I do like a few episodes like Toms Rhinoplasty and the Christmas one and maybe death but that's like what 3 out of 13 episodes I found enjoyable.
This season for the most part was one dimensional, boring, unfunny and not very enjoyable.
Take your nostalgic glasses off people because crude jokes on their own with barely any satire are not funny, they're offensive for the wrong reasons not to mention annoying and repetitive.
The show wasn't any good until seasons 4 and 5 came around and to this day despite a few ups and downs over the years it's still a critically strong cartoon (Season 21 is looking pretty great so far, there are only 2 episodes by the time I'm writing this) but for the first two seasons and season three to some extent, all we got was boring, unfunny and one dimensional episodes with a few ...more

One of the greatest seasons of T.V. ever aired, Mr. Hankey the Christmas Poo and Cartman Gets an Anal Probe are arguably two of the greatest episodes ever

Includes my all time favorite episode! Starvin Marvin. I absolutely think that season 5s episode scott tenorman must die is in my top 3 episodes but I have to go with Starvin Marvin for the win!

Classic -- before they added in all current events. True genius & the best in my opinion. Gotta love volcano -- more scuzzlebutt

6 Season 13

After not watching the show for a decade or more, I bought a copy of this season only to find that it had somehow managed to remain fresh, relevant and hilarious!

I wasn't too fond on this season

Greats like fatbeard, dead celebrities, what, fishsticks, eat pray queef, the coon, butters bottom bitch, pinewood derby, and best of all margaritaville. This season was the one that sparked my love of this show and I will be forever greatful because I explored and have seen every epidsode now multiple times.


7 Season 10

The only bad episode in this season is a million little fibers, but pared with Tsst, make love, not war craft, and hell on earth 2006, this is a damn good season

I don't know why people hating on this season just because of chef dying, it sucked he died but he had to go because his voice actor quit the show. This season has great episodes like cartoon wars, go God go, make love not warcraft, smug alert I mean come on, people need to get off their periods on this season

It has the worst episodes like, Hell on earth 2006, A million little fibers, ManBearPig, Stanley's cup, and The return of chef! Whoever put this THIS high on the list, must really like disturbing, cruel, and lame episodes

Hell on Earth 2006 was the greatest South Park episode so shut the hell up

Are you kidding me not even on the list. Cartoon wars, Make love not Warcraft. It has Towelie. It needs to be higher on the list

8 Season 7

Grey Dawn, Cripple Fight, Cancelled, I'm a Little Bit Country, Red Man's Greed, Li'l Crime Stoppers, Christian Rock Hard, and Raisins are all among my favorite episodes. A true example of South Park at it's best, very underrated.

I think that this is the best season. I loved
" cancelled" & "Crippled" & "tepeed"
I have all the seasons and I like this one the most.

Only 2 sub par episodes. The rest are hilarious. As others have said... Casa Bonita is the best ep of the season.

Casa Bonita... Enough said

9 Season 4

This is when the show really found it's footing. Trapper Keeper and Something You Can Do With Your Finger are classics. Also we got 4th grade. That was great. And Timmy 2000 was strong too.

I have this season on DVD just for that ONE EPISODE. Which episode you might ask? Trapper Keeper. I don't know why but this is absolutely my favorite episode of all time.

That season was okay. But Chef Goes Nanners is not one of the episodes that makes this season good. It becomes a random mess. Candy for example.

I like season 4 because it has the episode quintuplets and that cracked me up!

10 Season 11

Oh My God, where to start with season 11? We got More Crap, Cartman Sucks, The List, and Imaginationland. Easily one of the strongest seasons.

How is this season not in the top five? cartman sucks was amazing with the twisted ending, and butters in gay camp, and the imaginationland trilogy? wow? I can name too many more from this iconic season THE LIST is an all time fave, le petit tourette was a hit, lice capades, the snuke? all phenomenal! this season needs to be much higher

My favourite season, Cartman is just hilarious in this season should at least be in the top 10

Um this season had le pet torrurette imangenationland and more crap three of the best episodes in South park. This season should be higher on the list

The Contenders

11 Season 9

Sure, it had Mr Garrisons Fancy New Vagina, but it also had some of the best episodes in the series, including The Death of Eric Cartman, Marjorine, and Trapped in the Closet

Season 9 was one of the best. Episodes like : "Mr. Garrison fancy new vagina" (one of the sickest ever made),"The Losing edge","Ginger Kids","The death of Eric Cartman", Trapped in the closet,"Marjorine" were awesome!

I always tought this season to be 2nd best after season 8. Sad to see it this far. Seasons 8,9,10 and 13 are just flawless.

Season 9 was another great season. Except for Mr. Garrisons Fancy New Vagina, but we don't talk about that.

12 Season 19

I love this season so much, first we got an episode of mr garrison wanting to be president so he can get rid of Canadians, then an episode where butters gets a Canadian girl friend which was amazing, there was other amazing episodes too like the city part of town. it also introduced p.c principal who is hilarious as hell. and the final episodes were gorgeous

It's a good season but the way they finished it was like a normal episode, with so many unsolved plots it's too much. Also Kyle and Stan are not friends anymore. That's a downer. Let's hope this is not a cliffhanger and season 20 will continue with what happened in season 19.

Love this season, one of the best yet! Only reason it's down so low is because it's so new (no one could really vote yet versus older seasons) and because it offends a lot of the cry baby liberals they're making fun of.

Definitely my favorite season. I loved that every episode was a continuation of the last, and I LOVED Craig x Tweek! Also how it related so much to current events!

13 Season 12

This season was pretty weak. It only had one really good episode, Breast Cancer Show Ever, but I will admit that that episode is probably in my top 10.

Don't know why everyone thinks thinks this is the worst season. Season 16 is the worst and Season 11 should be way higher.

Absolutely the best season, although they are all very good save the first couple.

I love the episodes with Craig

14 Season 2

Remember when I said I prefer season 1 over 2, well I still legitimately mean that.
This is honestly the worst season I've seen from south park (and before anyone argues, yes I have watched season 20 from start to finish and I still find it tolerable compared to this god awful excuse of a season) this season barely had any good episodes, the only good episodes were Terrence and Phillip, clubhouses and spooky fish, sure there were a few I found okay like chicken lover, underpants gnomes and the chef episodes but that's about it.
Season 2 continued the original south park trend of lazy writing, unfunny gags, jokes that were already stale even before the previous season finished and the new ones were either not as clever or not funny in the slightest.
What doesn't help is that the characters are STILL just as one dimensional and dull as in the previous season, Wendy up to this point has literally become nothing but an excuse for vomit jokes that weren't even that funny before, ...more

I don't know about you guys, but this season was just pretty hilarious to me with the old eric cartman and the stupid things the characters did that made no sense. It was just a great laugh for me

The first 4 seasons are why I started to like Southpark, they talked about general stuff and old Cartman was amazing, then was meh.

This great my favourite one is all ha ha!

15 Season 15

Can we give some damn credit to season 15? 19th? Really? Okay sure, Funnybot and Royal Pudding were weak, but we got T.M.I., Crack Baby Athletic Association, and You're Getting Old, which were great. Not to mention Broadway Bro Down, Bass to Mouth, 1% and The Poor Kid, which were all pretty strong.

Not a bad episode in the entire series. By far the best season

You're Getting Old and Assburgers are the two best episodes in the entire series.

I like your getting old,ass burger,1% and Broadway bro down

16 Season 3

Season 3 is quite charming. It's offbeat with episodes like Cat Orgy, Jakovasaurs, Two guys Naked in a Hot Tub, The Red Badge of Gayness, Hooked on Monkey Fonics, Chinpokomon, and Korn's Groovy Pirate Ghost Mystery. I just have a personal liking to this season, but one could argue that seasons 5, 6, 7, 10, 19, 20, and 2 are really good too. For me personally, this is my ranking of the seasons I'm well acquainted with: 3>5>20>2>6>10>7>19>15>1>9>4>11>18>14>12>16>17>13

While the only episode in the season that is mainly remembered is chinpoko mon, it also had a lot of timeless classics, like Koran’s Groovy Pirate Ghost Mystery, and Mr Hankey’s Christmas Classics

The season that made me a fan of South park, one of the funniest there is

My favorite season. Includes Succubus and the Red Badge of Gayness

17 Season 18

Pretty underrated season. I thought that Gluten Free Ebola and Freemium Isn't Free were really funny and The Cissy is one of the best episodes of the last 5 seasons.

This season had some hilarious episodes and really should be higher on the list. I love grounded vindaloop and the cissy and the drone episodes and the freemium episodes. So funny

This season has stronger plots than other seasons and the episodes are back to back!

So underrated absolutely hilarious mockery of modern controversies

18 Season 17

This season is also an underrated season. Like we all know about the Black Friday trilogy, but I thought Goth Kids 3, Taming Strange, and The Hobbit were amazing.

It had the Hobbit, which had the best celebrity parody of the whole show, and the Black Friday trilogy, which I dare say is better than Imaginationland

Best season yet with almost every episode being funny. I loved the game of thrones console war trilogy


19 Season 16

This was the weakest season I've watched.

This was an amazing season!

I love this season so much! Why is it down here?! It has Kyman on it! And I love it... 😣

Kyman season

20 Season 22

Time to Get Cereal was the greatest episode they ever did. The only episode I didn’t really like was Buddha Box, but that was mostly because I felt as though the PC Babies running amok didn’t really add anything, just rehashed an earlier joke. For 11 minutes. But then, at the same time, I really want to like the episode, because it shows peak Cartman with a box over his head for phone time.

21 Season 21

This is getting better than seasons 19 and 20

22 Season 23

Tegredy farms is an amazing plot line. All story lines come together in the 6th episode. Other 4 standalone episodes are pretty weak.

23 Season 20

I don’t get the hate behind this season. Yes it started to decline after Oh, Jeez, but it also had Skankhunt, which is an extremely powerful and poignant episode

This season is weak and just bad yes there was a few decent episodes but the whole plot of this season is bad mainly the member berry plot I did not get that plot at all. They could of easily put this into a 2 or 3 part episode but they had to stretch it out as much a possible

Better than Season 19, anyway. A lot less PC Principal. Still belittling Kyle (my favorite) more than the old school days, but not quite as much as 19 did.

First half was great, But after the surprise election of Trump, The planned storyline got all muddled.

24 Season 24
25 Season 25
