Variety reports that Paramount+ is developing a ‘Jackass’ reboot, along with the show’s original creators. The announcement comes shortly after the success of Jackass Forever, the fourth movie in the Jackass film series which opened in theaters in February. Paramount global CEO Bob Bakish said: “Based off the success of Jackass Forever, we’re working with the creators to continue the partnership with a new series, bringing even more ridiculous antics straight to Paramount+”.
The Jackass franchise was created by Jeff Tremaine, Spike Jonze and Johnny Knoxville; the original show aired on MTV from 2000 to 2001 and was followed by the film series. Jackass features Knoxville, Chris Pontius, Steve-O, Dave England, Jason “Wee Man” Acuña, Ehren McGhehey and Preston Lacy, and follows the cast as they perform stunts and pranks. As of press time, it was not revealed if the original cast members will appear in the Paramount+ series.
