Trailer Park Boys fans rejoice! Ricky, Julian and Bubbles are heading to Netflix for two all-new seasons of the cult favorite TV series. The U.S. based streaming service will also debut three standalone specials as well as the upcoming movie Trailer Park Boys: Don't Legalize It (in Canadian theaters April 18) and Swearnet: The Movie.
Here is the official Netflix press release:
After taking a break, the boys return with their one-of-a-kind brand of substance-fueled scheming, with Season 8 of Trailer Park Boys, ten all-new episodes, premiering exclusively on Netflix later this year. But first, the latest seasons will be added in Canada and the U.S. while Seasons 1-7 will be available for the first time in the UK, Ireland, Netherlands, the Nordics, and Latin America.
Said Patrice Theroux, who oversees global Film operations for eOne, distributors of the franchise,
"We're thrilled that the boys are back and that their loyal fans will have full-access to all their antics on Netflix robust platform. The Trailer Park Boys are Canadian legends and their brand has an incredible fan following at home and around the world. We are looking forward to seeing their global success explode as Netflix rolls out fresh content and old favourites. Netflix is undoubtedly the perfect home for the boys and we're delighted to partner with Netflix to export the trailer park to audiences all over the world."
Said Sean Carey, vice president of content acquisition, Netflix,
"There's no other trio quite like Julian, Ricky and Bubbles and we're thrilled to be the new home for these beloved hellraisers. Our US and Canadian members love Trailer Park Boys and we're excited to take their unique brand of humor to our markets throughout the Americas and Europe."
It's been several years since the cameras have followed Ricky, Julian and Bubbles around the Sunnyvale Trailer Park and there have been some significant changes: Ricky recently harvested an enormous weed crop which he has successfully hidden in the walls of his trailer, Julian has opened a bar and gym in his trailer and Bubbles is in the process of opening what he calls a 'Shed and Breakfast' business.
In addition to the series, Netflix will debut three standalone specials: Community Service Special, Swearnet Special, Trailer Park Boys Xmas and two all-new feature films: Trailer Park Boys: Don't Legalize It and Swearnet: The Movie, which will come to the service following their theatrical premieres this year.
Netflix members will also be able to catch up on all their favourite Trailer Park Boys moments when the entire Trailer Park Boys collection, including all seven seasons as well as two Trailer Park Boys specials, is available on the platform worldwide.
