MTV’s wildly popular practical joke series, Punk’d, dominated the cable network from its premier in 2003 through its end in 2007, and catapulted head prankster and co-creator Ashton Kutcher into superstardom. The show returned in 2012, featuring guest hosts such as Justin Bieber. Now, Vulture reports that BET is planning to bring the show back to life once again. While very few details have surfaced just yet, BET says it will tailor the newest incarnation of the show to its audience.
With BET’s original comedy series Real Husbands of Hollywood maintaining a stronghold, maybe the reimagined Punk’d will look like a mash-up of the two shows. There’s plenty of comedic gold to be had between the two.
