VOD News | On 06, Mar 2014
Trailer Park Boys has found a new home on Netflix UK. All seven seasons of the Canadian comedy series will be added to the Internet TV company’s line-up on 31st March, with all-new episodes on the way.
Season 8 of Trailer Park Boys will include 10 new episodes and premiere exclusively to Netflix members around the world later in 2014.
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.
“We’re thrilled that the boys are back and that their loyal fans will have full-access to all their antics on Netflix’s robust platform,” said Patrice Théroux, who oversees global Film operations for eOne, distributors of the franchise.
“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.”
“There’s no other trio quite like Julian, Ricky and Bubbles and we’re thrilled to be the new home for these beloved hell-raisers,” 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 humour to our markets throughout the Americas and Europe.”
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 3: Dont Legalize It and Swearnet, which will come to the service following their theatrical premieres this year.
