“Punk’d” was an early aughts phenomenon, brought to us from the crazy mind of Ashton Kutcher to MTV, featuring celebrities playing pranks on other celebrities that were generally hilarious (remember when Justin Timberlake cried?).
Well, the show is back Thursday, March 29, with previously announced celebrity hosts Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Hayden Panettiere and “Punk’d” alum Dax Shepard, but now also adding Lucy Hale, Nick Cannon and Heather Morris.
The unsuspecting celebrities who are being “Punk’d” include Liam Hemsworth, Khloe Kardashian, Demi Lovato, Taylor Swift, DIanna Agron, Ron Artest, Lauren Conrad, Zac Efron, Ian Harding, Chloe Moretz, Emma Roberts, Vanessa Hudgens and “Jersey Shore” stars Ronnie and Snooki.
Apparently, this isn’t your older siblings’ “Punk’d” either – the pranks will be far more complicated than ever before, plus viewers will be shown the behind-the-scenes footage, to let them in on exactly how each punking was pulled off.
“Punk’d” returns Thursday, March 29 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on MTV. Check out the sneak peek below – Justin Bieber goes after professional skateboarder Rob Dyrdek.
