‘Punk’d’ & ‘Dishmantled’ Set Season 2 Premieres At Roku

Punk’d and Dishmantled were two of the unscripted Quibi originals that were renewed for a second season while the short-form service still existed.

Roku, which took ownership of Quibi’s programming slate, has now set premiere dates for their return.

Punk’d, hosted by Chance the Rapper, was renewed in June 2020. It will premiere its second season on Friday December 10 with celebrity guests including Tiffany Haddish, Adam Devine, Lil Nas X, Liza Koshy, Odell Beckham Jr., Teyana Taylor, Shay Mitchell, Anitta, Miguel, Karrueche Tran and Kate Upton.

Chance the Rapper and Jason Goldberg return as executive producers.

Dismantled, which is hosted by Tituss Burgess, was renewed for a second season in May 2020 and comes from Linda Lea, the creator and executive producer of Chopped. The cooking competition series sees a cannon-blasting of a mystery food dish into the faces of two blindfolded chefs. They’ll use their culinary prowess to identify the exploded dish and then race against the clock to recreate it. Whichever chef comes closest to the original dish wins a cash prize.
