I don't think so. This is from a New York Times interview last year:
Your current contract with Comedy Central takes you to 2013, at which point you'll have been doing "South Park" for more than 15 years. Could the end of the show be in sight then?
PARKER: Well, it's not like we're going to be doing this when we're 45. [laughs]
STONE: This is the entirety of our adult life, "South Park." It's been good that we've gone and done the movie "Team America" and these other things, because every time, we realize how great this job is. You go deal with a movie studio for a few weeks and you're like, man, I just want to go back to my show."
