More celebrity hosts have been named for MTV's reboot of prank reality series Punk'd.

Returning for a new season on Thursday, March 29, Nick Cannon, Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale, Mac Miller and Glee's Heather Morris have joined previously announced guest hosts Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Kellan Lutz, Bam Margera, Hayden Panettiere, Dax Shepard and Tyler the Creator.

Those who will be "punked" this season include Dianna Agron, Lauren Conrad, Zac Efron, Josh Hutcherson, Vanessa Hudgens, Chloe Moretz, Emma Roberts, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Liam Hemsworth, Demi Lovato, Taylor Swift, Rob Dyrdek and Jersey Shore's Ronnie Ortiz-Magro.

Ortiz-Magro talked to THR about his experience on Punk'd, where Margera targeted him for the show. "It’s different when you're on the other side of the camera. When you’re watching it you’re like, 'I can’t believe that this person believes that this is going on, what’s wrong with them?,' " he said, "and then I’m being punked and I’m like, ‘Wow, I was that person.’ It was like a funny, you’re gonna watch and be like, 'I can’t believe he’s doing that right now.' "

Dyrdek spoke to THR about Bieber's attempt at punking him. "I don’t think the way he punked me it quite turned out the way he expected. Justin set out to get me but you’ll have to tune in to see but I think I might have been the one that ends up winning here," he said.

MTV confirmed plans in December to bring back the show, which originally ran on the network from 2003-07 with former host Ashton Kutcher. Kutcher, who currently toplines CBS' Two and a Half Men, will be back as an executive producer, along with producing partner Jason Goldberg.

Lauren Dolgen, Colin Nash, Kristina Edwards and Jennifer Russakoff are the executives in charge of production for MTV.

Punk'd premieres March 29 at 10 p.m. on MTV.
