First announced last June, the hit MTV show PUNK'D, hosted by Ashton Kutcher, will be getting a reboot and premiering this April on mobile video platform Quibi with Chance the Rapper in hosting duties.

The original prank show ran from 2002-2007 on MTV and came back for a short time in 2012 and 2015. For those unfamiliar with the premise, hidden cameras caught unsuspecting celebrities in the middle of some pretty brutal pranks.

While we haven't heard much about who will appear on the revival, it looks like we can expect YUNGBLUD, Travis Barker, and Machine Gun Kelly to star in an episode.

A few days ago, YUNGBLUD and Machine Gun Kelly had a Twitter exchange that basically confirms MGK is the victim of a prank on an episode.

“@yungblud ok fine u guys got me good !!! 🤦🏼‍♂️ @MTV,” MGK tweeted to which YUNGBLUD replied, “YEAAAAH WE FOOKIN DID 🖤👀😝.” Meanwhile, Travis Barker posted a snap on his Instagram Story with a sign that said, “You got PUNK'D' and the caption, “Stay tuned…. This was amazing to witness.“ and tagged his fellow musicians.

The trio recently collaborated on “I Think I'm Okay" and Barker and MGK are currently working together on MGK's first pop-punk album, Tickets To My Downfall, set to be released this summer. 

YUNGBLUD confirmed he will also be releasing the followup to his debut album, 21st Century Liability, this August.

At the time of publishing, there is no release date for the trio's episode of PUNK'D but we cannot wait to see it!
