The Boys Are Back
Booze and Dope Fueled Misadventure

This is welcome news for their international legion of fans because earlier in the year, Rob Wells (Ricky), JP Tremblay (Julian), and Mike Smith (Bubbles) took to social media to advocate against proposed cuts to the film tax credits program for Nova Scotia.
The trio, who film the show in their native Halifax, threatened to take the production elsewhere or possibly discontinue it altogether should the tax credit program be reduced or eliminated.
Despite Halifax having a robust TV and film business, the trio’s lobbying efforts were unsuccessful.

Even More Good News For Fans
It’s too soon to determine when the newest season will air on Netflix though based on the 9th season, which premiered in March; it’s a safe bet that the fresh episodes will air roughly the same time next year.
Keep in mind that it will take a few months to film and just as long for post-production, then you have to factor in their upcoming, 9 city; 11 show, live European tour in the fall, it makes a certain amount of sense that there will be a significant amount of time that the show’s fans will have to wait for the new episodes.

Netflix also streams Swearnet: The Movie, a fictitious chronicling of how the trio’s vulgarity-laden website originated.
What to Expect Going Forward
Coming off the last season, there are several questions that will most assuredly be addressed in the 10th Season:
(CAUTION: Spoiler Alert If You Haven’t Seen Season 9)
The boys have gained control of Sunnyvale, the trailer park where they live (when they’re not in jail). How will they keep control?
What Jim Lahey, former trailer park supervisor, and Randy, his anti-shirt wearing lover, do to get the park back?
Speaking of revenge, has the park seen the last of former security supervisor, Leslie Dancer?
How will being a young grandfather affect Ricky?
What becomes of Bubbles strip mall in the park?
What happens to the site of the former hotel that Julian owns?
How long will the boys go before their next stint in jail?
Readers who are interested in checking out Trailer Park Boys for the first time via Netflix are cautioned that the show contains loads of adult language and violence.
Viewer discretion is advised.
Should that not be a problem, note that they are a popular binge-watching program.
