There goes the neighbourhood.

Comedians Robb Wells, John Paul Tremblay and Mike Smith, well known as Ricky, Julian and Bubbles, have acquired the rights to the IP which made them famous, the Trailer Park Boys film and TV mockumentary franchise.

The acquisition does not include the recently completed third feature film, tentatively titled Trailer Park Boys 3: Don’t Legalize It. The assets acquired include all prior TV series, specials, the first and second feature films and all the combined assets and underlying intellectual property rights.

They acquired it from the show’s original producers, Mike Clattenburg, Barrie Dunn and Mike Volpe, they announced Thursday.

They also revealed a new season of the series is set to unspool on recently launched Swearnet, an online network they launched a few months ago. The new season is already in pre-production.

Clattenburg, Dunn and Volpe are happy Robb, John Paul and Mike will continue the brand. “While the three of us have moved on to different TV and film projects, the boys are the only ones with the intimate knowledge and love of the show to keep Trailer Park Boys alive and well,” Clattenburg said in a statement.

When informed the cameras would be returning to Sunnyvale Trailer Park to follow them around again, the boys made the following comment: “The camera dicks are coming back? This is gonna be f#@*ed!!”
