Chance the Rapper to Host "Punk'd" Reboot on Streaming Platform Quibi


Punk'd is coming back to TV, except the show is punking fans with a new host and a new platform. EW reports that Chance the Rapper has been tapped to host the practical-joke show this time around, with episodes coming to the short-form streaming service Quibi. “Punk’d is one of MTV’s most iconic franchises,” Chance says in a statement. “I grew up watching this show and it’s surreal to be in the driver’s seat this time around on Quibi.” A preview that dropped Friday on YouTube shows Megan Thee Stallion getting terrorized by a gorilla (really, a guy in a gorilla suit) while sitting in an SUV. A premiere date for the Punk'd reboot has yet to be announced, but Quibi is scheduled to launch on April 6.
