They’re back. Following three wildly successful seasons, Trailer Park Boys – the Showcase Original series that’s currently the highest-rated Canadian series on specialty television* – is returning for season four. The insanity and chaos continue with eight all-new episodes launching Sunday, April 11 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The series will air weekly in this timeslot.
First introduced to audiences in 2001, Trailer Park Boys follows the story of Julian (John Paul Tremblay), Ricky (Robb Wells) and Bubbles (Mike Smith) – three guys whose view of the world has been shaped by their experiences growing up in Sunnyvale Trailer Park.
At the end of last season, Julian, Mr. Lahey (John Dunsworth) and Randy (Patrick Roach) landed themselves in jail after botching the heist of an ATM machine. Despite his involvement in the crime, Ricky somehow avoided arrest and, left behind at the park, took over as Trailer Park Supervisor. Together with Bubbles, his Assistant Trailer Park Supervisor, Ricky has walled off a portion of the park to conduct various illegal activities including planting and maintaining several huge fields of marijuana.
Over the course of season four, the Boys will have to deal with Mr. Lahey’s gradual descent into madness; an evil ventriloquist doll from Bubbles’ past; a mountain lion with addiction problems; and an appearance by real-life Maritime songstress Rita MacNeil, who has a run-in with the Boys after Ricky hijacks the singer’s tour bus.
Also back for the fourth season are scapegoats Cory (Cory Bowles) and Trevor (Mike Jackson), along with Lucy (Lucy DeCoutere), Sarah (Sarah E. Dunsworth), Barb Lahey (Shelley Thompson), Ray (Barrie Dunn) and J-Roc (Jonathan Torrens). Series creator Mike Clattenburg directs.
Season three of Trailer Park Boys will be available on DVD and home video through http://www.Showcase.ca in early April. Seasons one and two of the series will premiere in the U.S. this summer exclusively on BBC America.
