Jackass TV comeback news welcomed by fans as new series confirmed

Jackass looks set to make a return to the small screen.

The iconic early 00’s reality stunt show is better known for its movie outings these days, having recently released the hugely successful fourth film Jackass Forever.

Now streaming service Paramount+ is working on a revival of the TV show that started it all – which originally ran for three seasons between 2000 and 2001.

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+,” said Paramount global CEO Bob Bakish.

Following the success of the original series, a number of spin-offs were released – including Wildboyz and Viva La Bam – alongside four official movies and further big screen outings. The most notable cast members over the years have included Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, Chris Pontius, Dave England, Ryan Dunn, Steve-O and Jason ‘Wee Man’ Acuña.

Jackass Forever introduced a number of new faces, notably Jasper Dolphin, Zach Holmes, Rachel Wolfson, Eric Manaka and Sean ‘Poopies’ McInerney.
