Impractical Jokers star confirms season 11 is in the works

Impractical Jokers has been on thin ice for months, but it now seems as if the show is right on track to return for season 11, very soon.

There are few comedy throuples who can exploit the comedic gold of everyday situations quite like James “Murr” Murray, Brian “Q” Quinn and Sal Vulcano.

But while the beloved so-called Tenderloins (in various different combinations) have been entertaining audiences for well over a decade now on their hidden camera comedy show, Impractical Jokers, it seems like they may have run into some trouble behind the scenes recently.

What we know about Impractical Jokers season 11

Rumors started spreading that Impractical Jokers might be in trouble when this beloved show’s tenth season took a break in April of 2023.

And to make matters worse, it seemed for a while like not even the show’s stars had any idea what would happen to it in the future.

Fortunately, though it now seems like all of these behind-the-scenes bumps have been smoothed over, and the Impractical Jokers crew has now officially returned to finish the long-overdue second half of season 10.

But, in perhaps an even more exciting turn of events, Q has officially confirmed that the next, 11th season of Practical Jokers is also on its way.

Q took to X (formerly known as Twitter) on February 7, 2024, to share the news that Impractical Jokers would be kicking off the second part of its 10th season.

But more importantly, he also let it slip that everything was on schedule to start the filming of season 11 in the week of the 12th of February.

He eventually also followed up this announcement with a special sneak peek video which was taken on the set of Impractical Jokers season 11.

This little bit of information is admittedly not much to go on. But it is certainly compelling enough evidence to prove that the Tenderloins’ days of Impractical Jokers shenanigans are not behind them just yet, and that the show will definitely be returning for at least one more season at some point in the near future.

Catching up on the season 10 news

Before we can get to all of the excitement that might be in store for season 11, it is important that we take a look at the Impractical Jokers episodes which are currently airing on television.

The second part of Impractical Jokers’ tenth season premiered on February 8, 2024, and it seems like this season may only conclude in March of this year.

The season 10 episodes that you can still look forward to catching before then include:

Episode Title Expected air date
Episode 15 “ALF” March 7, 2024
Episode 16 “Michael Ian Black” March 7, 2024

There were serious doubts about Impractical Jokers’ future

Though we can all now breathe a sigh of relief that the Tenderloins will return to prank another day, it really was touch and go there for a while.

In fact, the future of the show was on such thin ice that Q even admitted in a pre-season 10 interview that he did not know whether the show would be returning for any future seasons.

Q told the Tell Em Steve-Dave team during a January 23, 2023 interview that “We don’t have a season 11 yet. The show might be over. We don’t know”.

Sal was slightly more positive in his September 2023 Interview with the Cincinnati Enquirer, stating “Things are looking good. We’re negotiating”, but he also seemed somewhat unsure of what would happen to the show in the future.

When will Impractical Jokers season 11 start airing?

Neither TBS nor truTV have officially confirmed that Impractical Jokers will be returning for an 11th season to date. This means that we have little to no details about what exactly this season will entail.

However, judging by the fact that the show’s past six seasons have all premiered in February (except for season eight, which premiered in March of 2019) – we can safely assume that this new season could start airing as soon as February of 2025.

What to expect for Impractical Jokers season 11?

Although Q has been our main informant for all the season 11 breaking news, Murr recently revealed through Instagram that they had a “long day” of filming for season 11 on March 1, 2024.

He also mentioned that the challenge that they ended up filming was “hysterical”.

So, while we do not know which celebrity guests they have lined up for this season quite yet, or what kind of hidden-camera fun they plan to entertain us with –season 11 is seems to be shaping up to be one of the most entertaining seasons of Impractical Jokers yet.
