First "Fear Factor" comes back, and now another early-aughts hit is slated to make its return.

MTV's "Punk'd" - the celebrity-pranking hidden-camera series that aired from 2003-05 - will call the network home again with an Ashton Kutcher-helmed 2012 season.

Though details haven't been released yet, MTV plans to air a sneak peek of the season on its annual New Year's Eve broadcast.
