"Our U.S. and Canadian members love Trailer Park Boys, and we're excited to take their unique brand of humor to our markets throughout the Americas and Europe," he added.
The Trailer Park Boys ended its Canadian TV run in 2008.
Netflix will also debut three standalone specials, Community Service Special, Swearnet Special and Trailer Park Boys Xmas, as well as two new feature films, Trailer Park Boys 3: Don't Legalize It and Swearnet.
