Netflix Will Premiere Two All-New Seasons of Canada's Favorite 'Trailer Park Boys'

'Trailer Park Boys'

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.”

    Yes Jon, good comedy takes chances and doesn't give a rat's ass about political correctness. Don't turn a funny show you obviously haven't watched into a soapbox for some vague cause you have no intention of fighting for outside of posting pseudo-intellectual comments about it on a movie website.

    Hey Derrick - Hear your point. As someone who grew up in a mobile home park, and has written/spoken about the issue, I definitely let my anger get the best of me. Hope the show is able to challenge ideas about mobile home life as it moves to the United States but, sadly, feel like years of white trash stereotypes - Boy Meets World, Million Dollar Baby, etc - will win out.

    holy tits jon, u must be fun at cheesebuger parties..

    Modern day Amos & Andy programming. What makes this premise funny other than they are walking and talking stereotypes of the white poor? I suppose as a society we should resign ourselves to the fact that a family's economic choice of home allows them to be ridiculed by popular entertainment.

    Dude, I lived in this park. Only mine wasn't so nice. I knew people like this - granted they didn't shoot the place up... on the regular. I love this show. There's an emotional undercurrent that rings especially true and is very poignant. Ya'll need to chill. They're as much laughing at the way trailer park life can be, as they are mocking people who believe those stereotypes about poor white Canadians.

    you obviously have never seen or heard anything about the show other than its name. the show has a lot more to do with Canadian pop culture and characters (it's a Canadian-bred tv show).

    Jon Booger, you need to lighten up, man. Believe it or not, everything in the world doesn't need to be PC. Hey, if you don't like it, don't watch it. Simple solution.
