Fans of the Nova Scotia comedy will be able to watch all seven original seasons featuring Sunnyvale Trailer Park‚Äôs infamous trio of Ricky, Julian and Bubbles starting March 31, according to a Netflix release on Wednesday.
The release said Season 8, which was filmed in and around Truro this past summer, launches only on Netflix this fall with 10 new episodes, and will be followed by season 9 on Canadian, U.S. and other Netflix territories.
Netflix says this is the first time all seven seasons will be available in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Netherlands, the Nordics, and Latin America.
‚ÄúThere‚Äôs no other trio quite like Julian, Ricky and Bubbles and we‚Äôre thrilled to be the new home for these beloved hellraisers,‚ÄĚ said Sean Carey, vice president of content acquisition for Netflix in the release.
‚ÄúWe‚Äôre excited to take their unique brand of humor to our markets throughout the Americas and Europe.‚ÄĚ
The release said there have been a few changes to the trailer park since audiences last checked in with the boys: in the new season Ricky is hiding a huge weed crop in the walls of his trailer, Julian has opened a combination bar and gym, and Bubbles is in the process of opening a ‚ÄėShed and Breakfast‚Äô business.
Besides the original seasons and new ones coming this fall, Netflix will also add the longer features Community Service Special, Swearnet Special, Trailer Park Boys Xmas and the new feature films Trailer Park Boys 3: Don‚Äôt Legalize It and Swearnet.
The movies will be added to Netflix after their theatrical premieres this year.
