The ‘Butterfly Effect’ star has called time on his hidden camera show after eight series of fooling Hollywood stars. In December 2003, Kutcher said he was the pulling the plug on the show reports ShowBuzz. Speculation arose that the announcement was a trick aimed at duping new celebrity prank victims into complacency. "Punk'd" returned in April 2004.
Stars who have been ‘Punk’d’ in the past include Justin Timberlake who was fooled into thinking all his worldly possessions were being seized by the government for tax evasion, Oscar winner Halle Berry – who was made to believe she would not be allowed into her own movie premiere, and Lindsay Lohan – who was duped into thinking she had made a limo driver miss his baby’s birth.
The first episode of the final season will air on US TV on April 7 and includes pranks on Hilary Swank, basketball legend Magic Johnson, Nelly Furtado and Jewel.
On June 5, Ashton, 29, will host a special ‘Punk'd Awards’ which will pay tribute to the top tricks the show has played, and the stars who reacted the best.
MTV's Graden said Monday that the show is officially finished this time but that there might be future collaborations with Kutcher on other projects.
Allegedly Kutcher is scheduled to host a special "Punk'd Awards" honoring all eight seasons at 9 p.m. June 5.
MTV says Punk'd will be part of their new Tuesday night block that also will include "Scarred" at 9:30 p.m., "Real World/Road Rules Inferno" at 10 p.m. and "Living Lahaina" at 10:30 p.m.
"We decided to make an event out of it," said Brian Graden, president of entertainment at MTV Networks Music Group and president of Logo. "We're looking to experiment with many alternate programming and premiere models as a way for things to take hold in an age of technology."
The MTV Tuesday night block is themed around "boys being naughty."
