HALIFAX - American rapper Snoop Dogg will be making an appearance in the next season of "Trailer Park Boys."

The Nova Scotia-based comedy group made the official announcement on Friday, following hype on social media that the rapper was in the province to appear on the show.

This isn't the first time Snoop Dogg has crossed paths with Ricky, Julian and Bubbles — characters played by Robb Wells, John Paul Tremblay and Mike Smith, respectively.

In April, the rapper retweeted a Trailer Park Boys tweet about changes to Nova Scotia's film tax credit and asked his 12 million followers to sign an online petition.

Last year, the trio appeared in character as guests on Snoop Dogg's web series GGN.

Production is underway in Nova Scotia on Season 10 of the "Trailer Park Boys" television series.
