    If you've got a fear of being part of a prank, then you're shit out of luck, because Ashton Kutcher's prank show Punk'd is getting a reboot.

    However, he won't be the host of the show, as someone else has been tapped to be the face of the reboot. That person's name? Chance The Rapper.

    The reboot will be available from April exclusively on Quibi, a new mobile streaming platform. The series will be 20 episodes long, with each episode under 10 minutes.

    It's the third time the show has been rebooted, following previous attempts in 2012 and 2015. With Chance at the helm, it's looking pretty likely that the third time will be the charm.

    In a press release, Chance said "Punk’d is one of MTV’s most iconic franchises.I grew up watching this show and it’s surreal to be in the driver’s seat this time around on Quibi.”

    There's no news on when Quibi will be coming to Australia, but as soon as it does, we'll be grabbing it - we want to see what pranks Chance plays.
