MTV Announces the Return of ‘Punk’d’
MTV has confirmed the celebrity hidden-camera series is returning to the network. This comes more than a year after rumors had started saying that the show will return with Justin Bieber as the host.
The network wouldn’t confirm who the new host will be, only confirming the series will be returning. The original show with Ashton Kutcher as host debuted in 2003 and lasted four years, airing 69 episodes. MTV has confirmed that Ashton Kutcher will be returning to the show, but as an executive producer.
Access Hollywood reported back in August that the show already resumed production and recorded the return episode with Bieber pranking Taylor Swift. The revamped show will be different than the original, with a different celebrity hosting each episode.
MTV will show viewers a preview of the show at their annual New Year’s Eve show hosted by Demi Lovato and Tyler Posey. *Side Bar* Our friend J. Cole will be performing at the New Year’s Eve party. Expect an announcement on who will host the show.
In the meantime check out this episode of Punk’d with Mila Kunis as the victim.
