Comedy Central orders Crank Yankers revival series

The crank-calling puppets will soon be back on the air. Comedy Central has ordered a revival series of Crank Yankers from the show’s original creators Jimmy Kimmel, Adam Carolla and Daniel Kellison, according to Deadline.

The cable comedy network said the show would be updated for our new, digital-friendly culture, featuring “the world’s favorite profane puppets will be pranking on phones, social media, e-sport platforms and any venue where trouble can be made.

Jonathan Kimmel will serve as showrunner and executive producer, joined by executive producers/creators Kimmel, Carolla and Kellison. It’ll be the first project for Jimmy Kimmel’s new production banner, Kimmelot.

Crank Yankers has always been my favorite show to make. Nothing is more fun or makes me laugh harder than a great crank call and I am thrilled that Comedy Central asked us to do it again,” said Jimmy Kimmel. “At this time, I would like to ask all Americans to disable their caller ID. Thank you.”

The original series ran on Comedy Central from 2002 to early 2007, when it was briefly moved to MTV2 before being taken off the air a few weeks later. It featured actual prank phone calls made by the show’s regulars, as well as celebrity guests, and later re-enacted onscreen by puppets for added comedic effect.
