Trailer Park Boys Movies on Netflix (1999-2014)

There has been a total of four movies released featuring the now iconic trio so far. But which ones are available to stream 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 (2006)

The second movie released shortly after the final of season 5 and is also known by some fans as “The Big Dirty”. The film got a big production boost compared to the last instalment. 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 an effort to go straight after returning from jail, even going so far as opening a legal business. But after finding the trailer park in despair, things go from bad to worse.

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’. The film follows the pretty similar structure that the series and previous movies have been subject to (not a bad thing). As the trio attempt a number of get-rich-quick schemes that are doomed to fail from the start.

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


The majority of the movies seem to be available in its home country of Canada, but fans of the show who live in America will be disappointed to hear they were removed from US in September of 2017, after being available for 2 years.

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


TV Series on Netflix

The main TV series has spanned from 2001 to present day. 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)

Due to the series becoming a partial Netflix Original, all 11 series are available in the Majority of Netflix regions.


Specials on Netflix

Trailer Park Boys: Xmas Special (2004) 

The first Christmas special from the gang premiered in 2003 and is a prequel set in 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.

Say Goodnight To the Bad Guys (2008)

This special marks the end of the first seven seasons and the initial run of the show before it started to be co-produced by Netflix and Swearnet. It is available in UK, US, Canadian, Australian and most European countries.


Spin-off Series on Netflix

All the spin-off series have been released as Netflix Originals, meaning that they are available in all Netflix Regions.

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.


Live Shows on Netflix

As well as pre-produced shows, The Trailer Park Boys also go live on tour. 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: Drunk, High and Unemployed: Live in Austin (2015)

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


Coming to Netflix in the Future?

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

 

We can expect season 12 to be coming to Netflix in the next couple of months (March April 2018). Although you might be able to binge the new season sooner of their own platform Swearnet.

No doubt another special will also be in the pipeline for later this year.
