Two new seasons of revered Canadian mockumentary series “Trailer Park Boys” will be coming our way courtesy of Netflix, via an international distribution deal with Entertainment One. All new episodes of the comedy, as well as older seasons, will be exclusively available to Netflix members in Canada, the U.S. and all other Netflix territories.
Created by Mike Clattenburg, “Trailer Park Boys” focuses on the residents of Nova Scotia’s Sunnyvale Trailer Park, among them Ricky (Robb Wells), Julian (John Paul Tremblay) and Bubbles (Mike Smith). The show’s essentially been on hiatus since the end of season seven in 2007, but a new 10-episode season eight will be coming to Netflix starting this fall, with a ninth season to follow.
Since we last saw the Sunnyvale Trailer Park crew, 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.
Seasons one through seven of “Trailer Park Boys” are currently available in the U.S. via Netflix, and will be made available for the first time in the U.K., Ireland, Scandinavia and Latin America. In addition to the series, Netflix will debut three standalone specials: “Community Service Special,” “Swearnet Special” and “Trailer Park Boys Xmas,” along with two all-new feature films: “Trailer Park Boys 3: Don’t Legalize It” and “Swearnet,” which will come to the service following their theatrical premieres this year.
“There’s no other trio quite like Julian, Ricky and Bubbles, and we’re thrilled to be the new home for these beloved hellraisers,” said Sean Carey, Vice President of Content Acquisition, Netflix. “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.”
