The Trailer Park Boys will return for another season.
With seven seasons and two movies down (with a third, "Trailer Park Boys 3: Don't Legalize It" also on the way), you'd think the Trailer Park Boys would've run out steam. But apparently, nothing could be further than the truth: not only do Ricky (Robb Wells), Julian (John Paul Tremblay), and Bubbles (Mike Smith) have a seemingly infinite number of stories to tell, the actors have just acquired the rights to the "Trailer Park Boys" franchise so the legacy can continue.
Here's where it gets better. While the rights -- acquired from the show's original producers Mike Clattenburg, Barrie Dunn, and Mike Volpe -- do not include those to "Don't Legalize It," they do include those to a just-announced upcoming season of the series which will air on SwearNet.com, an Internet channel owned by Wells, Tremblay, and Smith.
Understandably cautious about their return to the spotlight, Ricky, Julian, and Bubbles only offered the following sentiment: "The camera d---s are coming back? This is gonna be f-----d!"
Clattenburg, however, is far more calm.
"While the three of us have moved on to different TV and film projects, the Boys are the only ones with the intimate knowledge and love of the show to keep 'Trailer Park Boys' alive and well," he said.
While the movies offered a little more adventure than just the ins and outs of life in the trailer park, it'd be great if Season 8 followed in the footsteps of "Arrested Development" by giving us a little more about their day-to-day lives, and what's changed about them in half a decade. The franchise's second film, "Countdown To Liquor Day" (2009), actually saw Lahey (John Dunsworth) abscond to Cuba with millions of dollars -- but that doesn't mean he stayed there. What if he spent it all and returned a new man? What if the trailer park has been magnificently overhauled? What if Bubbles has raised an army of cats that drove Lahey out in 2011? These are the things we need to know.
But in the meantime? Welcome back, Trailer Park Boys.
