TruTV announced today that Impractical Jokers has been picked up for a ninth season. The veteran hidden camera prank series, which is currently airing its eighth season, has remained a top performer for the cable network.

The series stars members of comedy troupe "The Tenderloins", who coerce each other into pulling hidden-camera pranks on the unsuspecting public without knowing the details of the gag until moments before they actually do it. The remaining members of the group stay behind the scenes where they feed lines to the prankster's earpiece.

TruTV has ordered another 26 episodes of Impractical Jokers for Season 9, which will premiere in 2020. In the meantime, new episodes of Season 8 resume airing on August 8.
