HBO Max launches in May.

"Rick and Morty exploded onto the scene in 2013 and quickly drew a legion of rabid followers from both critics and young fans," Kevin Reilly -- chief content officer of HBO Max and president of TBS, TNT, truTV -- said in a statement. "The jokes come fast and frenetically in a smart comedy concoction we are so happy to deliver on HBO Max."

The animated series follows the intergalactic adventures of a scientist and his grandson. Its voice cast includes Justin Roiland, Sarah Chalke, Chris Parnell and Spencer Grammer.

All 23 seasons of the cartoon South Park -- created and voiced by Trey Parker and Matt Stone -- will be available for streaming on HBO Max in June.

For the next three seasons, new episodes of the show about childhood friends living in Colorado will be offered on the service 24 hours after they air on Comedy Central.

"South Park is unequivocally among the best -- setting the satirical gold standard, with a consistent finger on the comedy pulse," said Reilly. "Audiences have connected with Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny -- either alive or dead -- for over 20 years, and we look forward to connecting these characters to new audiences on HBO Max."
