Trailer Park Boys is a series about everything that can go wrong with life. It revolves around Ricky (Robb Wells) and Julian (John Paul Tremblay), two guys whose lives were molded by their typical experiences growing up in the Trailer Park like stealing, fighting, smoking, drinking, scamming and listening to Van Halen. The Boys have had their share of trouble with the law and there's no surprise that most of their adult lives have been spent behind the bars.
The series was created and directed by Mike Clattenburg which became the continuation of Clattenburg's 1999 film of the same name and premiered in 2001 on the Showcase television network. In 2007, the planned final season ended and on December 7, 2008, the supposed-to-be final episode '' Say Goodnight to the Bad Guys was premiered as a special on Showcase ending the initial run of the series. Countdown to Liquor Day (second film) was released on September 25, 2009 in Canada and after issues in production, the third film has finally been completed and will be released in April 2014 .
