The first trailer for Season 5 of Crank Yankers, Comedy Central's puppet-populated prank phone call series, reveals not only the all-star voice cast but the date in which the revival premieres.
The trailer consists of a montage of puppets being stitched together while various clips of prank calls play in the background. During that time, the premiere date of September 25 appears on-screen, as well the list of some of the new and returning actors lending their voices to the puppet pranksters: Tracy Morgan, David Alan Grier, Aubrey Plaza, Will Forte, Tiffany Haddish, Nick Kroll, Chelsea Peretti and Adam Corolla.
Created by Adam Corolla, Jimmy Kimmel, and Daniel Kellison, Crank Yankers features actual prank phone calls made by celebrities which are then re-enacted using puppets. The series aired on Comedy Central from 2002-2005 and came back for a short-lived run on MTV2 in 2007. However, in February, Kimmel revealed the series would be making a comeback for a 20-episode fifth season.
Returning to Comedy Central on Sept. 25, Crank Yankers stars Tracy Morgan, David Alan Grier, Aubrey Plaza, Will Forte, Tiffany Haddish, Nick Kroll, Chelsea Peretti and Adam Corolla.
