Fans have been made to wait for another installment from the team after the success of third feature length film Jackass 3D, released in 2010.   

The show made stars of co-stars Knoxville, Bam Margera, Steve-O, Chris Pontius, Dave England, Ryan Dunn, Ehren McGhehey, Jason Acuña and Preston Lacy following its initial launch. 

Despite the controversy surrounding its unorthodox stunts, it was an instant hit with fans, running for three years on MTV before branching into cinema with three spin-off films.

Meanwhile co-star Margera has entered rehab multiple times for drug, alcohol and mental health issues.

In 2019, he was ejected from a commercial airline after being deemed too drunk to fly.
