​Watch The New Trailer For 'Super Troopers 2'

Good news, kids: Super Troopers 2 is officially here. 17 years after the original, sure, but it's finally arrived.

And we think you'll like the trailer, which has just dropped:

Jay Chandrasekhar's first film, which was released way back in 2001, was an instant cult classic with fans who ignored the negative critical reviews, and ever since then people have been dying to find out what sort of shenanigans Thorny, Farva and the rest of the lads have been up to.

It's been no easy feat to get to this stage, despite the fact that the original movie made a hefty $23 million (£17.8 million) at the box office. The producers of the movie put the sequel through a crowdfunding site to get the money to cast, film, edit and release the sequel.

The campaign on Indiegogo brought in a staggering $4,576,825 (£3,283,800), but then it all went quiet for a bit.

But then, in 2016, Chandrasekhar shared a poster for the upcoming sequel, with a tagline of 'The Time Is Meow'.

For the long-awaited sequel, the troopers have to deal with an international border dispute that arises between the US and Canada, which sees Mac, Thorny, Foster, Rabbit and Farva called in to set up a new highway patrol station in the disputed area. The result, as you'd imagine, is unconventional.

Kevin Heffernan, Erik Stolhanske, Paul Soter and Steve Lemme of the comedy troupe Broken Lizard will all reprise their roles as state troopers who get up to all sorts of idiotic things.

Steve Lemme, who plays State Trooper MacIntyre 'Mac' Womack, gave a pretty hefty clue about the release date during an interview with Seven Days last year: "Here's what I can tell you: It's springtime and there's a very obvious date, which happens to fall on a Friday this year."

Yep, you guessed it. The film is out on 20 April this year - a.k.a. 4/20.

Lemme also elaborated on what fans can expect from the film: "Well, we do all have cell phones in this movie. But otherwise, it seems like time has stood still for these state troopers.

"Which is good, because we didn't really want to answer the question of where these guys have been for the last 15 years, although we do answer it."

Judging by the trailer - which features bar brawls, Rob Lowe, a giant brown bear, high speed chases and more - it looks like it might just be worth the wait.
