LOS ANGELES, Aug. 28 (UPI) -- MTV's "Punk'd" is officially back with a twist after a four-year absence -- the celebrity prank series now features different celebrity hosts for each episode.

The show, which debuted in 2003, will no longer feature Ashton Kutcher as host, though he will remain the executive producer of "Punk'd," Access Hollywood reported

The new season is kicked off filming Friday with Taylor Swift as the victim of a prank pulled by Justin Bieber, a source told the celebrity news Web site.

"Punk'd" has been on the shelf since 2007. In October 2010, it was rumored the show would be back with Bieber as a host, yet it appears he will only be involved in the first episode.
