Paramount+ is developing a new Jackass revival series

Nearly twenty years after the original Jackass series was cancelled by MTV, a revival show may be on the horizon. Via The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount Global CEO Bob Bakish revealed the news during an earnings call earlier today. He also mentioned that the show’s original creators are involved with the revival.

“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 Bakish.

Jeff Tremaine, Spike Jonze, and Johnny Knoxville created Jackass as a reality show for MTV in 2000. Knoxville also starred in the series alongside Bam Margera, Chris Pontius, Dave England, Ryan Dunn, Steve-O, Jason “Wee Man” Acuña, Ehren McGhehey, and Preston Lacy as they performed ill-advised stunts and pranks on each other.

Following the show’s cancellation in 2002, Knoxville and his cast reunited for Jackass: The Movie in 2002. While that was intended to be the franchise’s swan song, its box office success led to theatrical sequels in 2006 and 2010. There were also two direct-to-video Jackass spinoffs that don’t count toward the main series.

Knoxville, Steve-O, Pontius, England, Wee Man, Ehren, and Lacy reunited for Jackass Forever, which earned $80 million at the box office earlier this year. They were joined by a new generation of “Jackasses,” including Jasper Dolphin, Rachel Wolfson, Sean “Poopies” McInerney, Zach Holmes, and Eric Manaka.

Notably absent from the lineup was Margera, who sued his former collaborators Tremaine, Knoxville, and Jonze, as well as MTV and Paramount over his dismissal from Jackass Forever. The lawsuit was settled last month. However, it remains to be seen if Margera will be invited to participate in any future Jackass projects.

Where to watch Yellowstone season 5 (and the season premiere for free)
Beth talks to her father in Yellowstone.

Yellowstone is a hugely popular show that looks at the conflicts between a large cattle ranch, a Native American reservation, and greedy land developers. The show stars Kevin Costner as John Dutton, the gruff but likable patriarch of a cattle dynasty who tries to fend off competitors and rein in his unruly family. Luke Grimes, Kelly Reilly, and Wes Bentley star as Dutton's children, who have their own set of troubles.

With a fantastic cast and storylines that mix soap opera and red-state social commentary, Yellowstone follows the melodramatics of the Dutton family as well as the conflicts between warring landowners in Big Sky country. The show, created by Taylor Sheridan and John Linson, has streamed four seasons so far and its massive success shows no signs of stopping.

Where to watch 1923, the Yellowstone prequel series with Harrison Ford
A man and a woman walk outside in 1923.

What's the biggest show on television right now? The answer may surprise you. If you look at Twitter, you might think it's The White Lotus or one of those dreadful Real Housewives reality shows. If you read Variety and The Hollywood Reporter, you may think it's Wednesday or Dahmer. But how many new shows have spawned an entire fictional universe, with spinoffs more successful than the last?

For five seasons, Yellowstone has been an unexpected hit with audiences. Its first spinoff, 1883, with country singers Tim McGraw and Faith Hill was also a hit, and so the Yellowstone universe has further expanded with 1923, a new limited series starring Star Wars and Indiana Jones legend Harrison Ford and Academy Award winner Helen Mirren. The show is set for release in December 2022, but where can you watch it?
