The Trailer Park Boys made their film debut in 1999. They have been adapted many times, including four movies and 11 seasons. There are also some spin-offs. Which ones can you stream on Netflix? Below is a complete guide for the Trailer Park Boys.

Interestingly the actors of the show purchased the rights from the producers and started up their own streaming service titled “Swearnet”. They teamed up with Netflix in 2013 and started co-producing seasons 8 and beyond, as well as 3 specials.

The mockumentary franchise revolves around the residents of Sunnyvale Trailer Park, Ricky, Julian and Bubbles. They spend their time trying to make money through seemingly insignificant petty crime, while also avoiding jail sentences. Despite this fans learn to expect that most seasons end up with the gang somehow going to jail.

The series has picked up a wide-spread and impressive fan based over the years with many looking forward to what the franchise has to offer in the future.

The iconic trio has seen four films so far. Which movies are now available for streaming on Netflix?

Trailer Park Boys (1999):

The film that started it all was created by Mike Clattenburg in 1999 and is often considers the spiritual “pilot” to the TV series. It follows the small-time criminal Julian who decides to hire a documentary crew to film his life, after finding out that he only has a week to live. The film didn’t particularly pick up traction, but luckily some network executives spotted potential.

Regions Available –  The Original movie doesn’t seem to be available on Netflix at this current time, but you should be able to find a version to stream on SwearNet (the streaming site created by the starts of the Trailer Park Boys).

Trailer Park Boys: The Movie

The second movie released shortly after the final of season 5 and is also known by some fans as “The Big Dirty”. This film received a significant production boost over the previous installment. After attempting to pull off an ATM machine heist the gang end up spending 18 months in jail, but upon release are not deterred and start preparing for “The Big Dirty” involving untraceable coins.

Regions Available –  Canada, was removed from US Netflix in September 2017.

Trailer Park Boys: Countdown To Liquor Day 2009

Set two years after the events of season 7 this film is not the sequel to the 2006 movie, but is a continuation of the final TV special “Say Goodnight to the Bad Guys” (Before the Netflix deal). Julian makes every effort to get out of jail as soon as possible, opening his own legal company. Things get worse after Julian discovers the trailer park.

Regions Available –  Canada, was removed from US Netflix in September 2017.

Trailer Park Boys: Don’t Legalize it (2014)

The most recent in the Trailer Park Boys films is the 2014 addition ‘Don’t Legalize it’. This film is very similar to the previous films and series. The trio try a variety of schemes to get rich quick that fail right away.

Regions Available –  Canada, was removed from US Netflix in September 2017.

Most of the films are available in Canada. However, Americans who love the show will be sad to learn that they have been removed from the US since September 2017.

But don’t despair, because the story is different when it comes to the TV series.

Netflix TV Series

From 2001 through the present, the main series aired on TV. Before Netflix began co-producing the show along with Swearnet, the first 7 seasons were produced and aired by Showcase which spanned up to 2007 (2008 if you count the special “Say Goodnight to the Bad Guys”).

  • Season 1-7 (Showcase seasons)
  • Season 8-11 (Swearnet/Netflix Series).

The series has been made a partial Netflix Original. All 11 episodes are now available in all major Netflix regions.

Netflix Specials

Trailer Park Boys: Xmas Special (2004)

This Christmas special was the first of theirs and it premiered in 2003. It is prequel to 1997. This special is a nice addition for fans of the series who’d like to see what Sunnyvale Trailer Park was like back in the day. This special is available in UK, US, Canadian, Australian and most European countries.

Speak Goodnight to the Bad Guys (2008)

The special ends the seven-season run and marks the beginning of Swearnet and Netflix's co-production. It is available in UK, US, Canadian, Australian and most European countries.

Netflix Spin-off Series

The spin-offs have all been made available as Netflix Originals.

In October 2016 an 8-part spin-off series released on Netflix titled, Trailer Park Boys: Out of the Park: Europe. The series features the boys taking an all-expenses-paid trip around Europe, but this doesn’t come without certain terms.

Trailer Park Boys: Out of the Park-USA (2017). This series followed a pretty similar format to the Europe series and is technically just the second season even though it’s displayed as a separate title on Netflix.

Netflix Live TV Shows

The Trailer Park Boys are also able to go on live tours in addition to pre-produced shows. Many of the live shows are then produced into feature long Netflix originals that are again available in all Netflix Regions.

Trailer Park Boys: Live at the North Pole features the boys going to Minneapolis, pretending it’s the North Pole

Trailer Park Boys: High, drunk and unemployed: Austin (2015)

Trailer Park Boys: Live in F**kin’ Dublin (2014)

What is the Future of Netflix?

The Trailer Park Boys don’t seem to be showing any sign of slowing down, with many more projects no doubt on the horizon.

 

Season 12 will be available on Netflix within the next few months (March-April 2018). You might still be able binge-watch the latest season on their platform Swearnet.

There is no doubt that another special will be added to the mix for this year.
