Yang, and Derek Waters. The three creators, Jimmy Kimmel, Adam Carolla, and Daniel Kellison, will also lend their voices to the series, as they did for the first four seasons.
Based on the trailer, it looks like popular puppet characters Spoonie Luv, Elmer Higgins, Niles Standish, Bobby Fletcher, The Truth, Terrence Catheter, and Mr. Birchum will all be returning for the new season.
Crank Yankers features actual prank phone calls made by celebrities which are then re-enacted using puppets. The series aired on Comedy Central from 2002-2005 and came back for a short-lived run on MTV2 in 2007. However, in February, Kimmel revealed the series would be making a comeback for a 20-episode fifth season.
Crank Yankers returns to Comedy Central on Sept. 25.
