Punk'd is an American hidden camera-practical joke reality television series that first aired on MTV in 2003 and was created by Ashton Kutcher and Jason Goldberg, and produced and hosted by Ashton Kutcher. It bore a resemblance to both the classic hidden camera show Candid Camera and to TV's Bloopers & Practical Jokes, which also featured pranks on celebrities. Being "punk'd" referred to being the victim of such a prank. The series finale aired on MTV on May 29, 2007. The series culminated in early June with the Punk'd Awards. After a five-year hiatus, the series was revived with a March 29, 2012 premiere. The revived series was hosted by different celebrity guests each week. The ninth season ended on June 7, 2012. On May 25, 2013, Katalyst Media stated that a tenth season was in development. As of May 2014 no information has been released regarding the 10th season.
