No further details on returning cast members or potential stunts have been revealed yet, but the project would be hosted exclusively by Paramount+.

Next month, Jackass 4.5 will be released on Netflix, featuring unseen footage from Jackass Forever.

Like previous film extensions 2.5 and 3.5Jackass 4.5 will feature behind-the-scenes footage, outtakes, cast interviews and never-before-seen stunts.

Johnny Knoxville has previously said he’s retiring from big stunts – a decision influenced by medical advice from his doctor.

Speaking to NME, Knoxville said: “I knew going into this movie that this was going to be the last time I was going to do big stunts because I’ve got kids and I’ve had so many injuries. I feel like I could go out good in this film by being my last with big stunts. I’ve got nothing left to prove in that area.”
