If you are a fan of Southpark, then this question would bother you very much: Why did they bring Kenny back from the dead? Well, the creator Matt and Trey did explain their reason for bringing back Kenny after he died in 5th season of Southpark. So if he Died for good, What Episode Does Kenny Come Back?

Matt and Trey had an idea to replace Kenny with a series of characters that would come and go in order to fill the place left by Kenny’s death. The real reason they killed off a character like Kenny was that it got repetitive with the “You Killed Kenny” jokes. And it was not funny anymore to add these jokes in every episode. 

They wanted to try something new and hence the decision. But halfway into the 6th season, they felt that it would have been good if Kenny was still a part of the show. In order to bring him back, they tried several different things, and finally, in the episode “Red Sleigh Down” of season 6, he appears out of nowhere. Making a comeback into Southpark. 

Trey, in an interview, said that, like all the characters of Southpark, Kenny is based on a real character from his childhood. His recurring death concept comes from the fact that the real-life Kenny would be missing for days without a hint. Which left them wondering what if he was dead.

But that’s what’s hilarious, to see how he comes back from the dead every time. For example, one of the explanations given about his return in “Cartman Joins NAMBLA” is that Kenny’s soul returns after his death back to his mother. After that, he is reborn and grows back to his original state. And somehow retains his memories as well.

One of the recent explanations for his rise from death is that he cannot die, as Kenny reveals that he wakes up in his bed the next morning. And interestingly, no one knows that he dies, only he has those memories pertaining to his death.

Another unique explanation is that he is connected to a cult called “The Cult of Cthulhu”. Carol, in one of the episodes, mentions this as the source of Kenny’s immortality. The funny thing that we already mentioned is that no one remembers that he gets killed every now and then. In a desperate attempt, Kenny shoots himself in the head in front of his friends, begging them to remember his death this time. But they still don’t have a clue as to he died.
