Fans of Canadians, kitties, rum and coke, weed, Rickyisms, and all things Trailer Park Boys can finally rejoice after the seven-year wait since the last season ended in 2007. According to a Netflix press release out today, the streaming network has acquired the Canadian comedy’s new 10-episode season to air sometime later this year, with a ninth season renewal already locked in and in the writing stage. In addition to the two new seasons, Netflix has also added the latest Trailer Park Boys seasons – which originally aired on Canada’s Showcase network – to its instant streaming service. Here a quick teaser at what you can expect from Ricky, Julian, Bubbles, and crew in season 8:
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.
Netflix will also debut three standalone specials (Community Service Special, Swearnet Special, Trailer Park Boys Xmas) and make available two feature-length films (Trailer Park Boys 3: Don’t Legalize It and Swearnet) after their theatrical release. It doesn’t take rocket appliances to conclude that the return of Trailer Park Boys sounds pretty awesome already.
