S10 Blazer park brake is stuck down

89 S10 Blazer 4.3 4x4
Applied park brake this afternoon and now it will not release. Right now it's all the way in and it will not release. Have not ever worked
on brakes, any suggestions? Thanks in advance

Either the front cable or the two rears (or all three) are likely seized up. Hold the release and pull the pedal up, then climb under the truck (Assuming it's properly chocked of course) with a can of penetrating oil and pull on the cables to try and find one that won't budge. Worst case scenario is pulling both drums (They're gonna fight ya) and snipping the parking brake cables inside the drums. That would get you moving at least.
Another possibility is that the under-dash mechanism has locked up. Unlikely but possible.
