It's been 17 years since Jackass premiered — yes, seventeen — and after igniting a generation of daredevil youths, the show was pulled off the air just three seasons later. MTV's highest-rated original series featured a bunch of dudes attempting dangerous, "don't try this at home" stunts, and although there was a lengthy warning at the beginning of each episode, kids across the country were injured attempting to copy their dangerous activities.
Why is @johnnyknoxville's hand on his balls instead of @iamweeman's shoulder? I think we all know the answer. #happybirthdaysteveo A post shared by Dave England (@daveenglandshoot) on Jun 13, 2017 at 4:43pm PDT

Despite the series only lasting a couple of years, fans have had three and a half movies in its absence. The fourth — which was slated to debut in 2017 — never made it to the big screen. Bam Margera let it slip that they were toying with idea of calling it Jackass 4: We're Not Dunn Yet in honor of the crew's late buddy, Ryan Dunn — which some fans thought was disrepectful — and TBH, there are only so many ways we can watch guys getting kicked in the crotch.
These days, however, the stars of the show are all-grown-up and one is just months away from becoming a first-time dad! Plus, fans will be happy to know the cast still has a lot of love for one another — and even meet up from time-to-time. In June, David England, Johnny Knoxville, Wee-Man, and Steve-O got together for Steve's birthday. Adorable!

"Danger" Ehren frequently put himself in, well, danger and was often the butt of the joke. From having the word "Jackass" sunburnt on his chest to his infamous "Terror Taxi" bit from the film, Jackass Number Two, the now 40-year-old is worth an estimated $3.5 million. In 2010, he made an appearance on The Tonight Show with co-star Johnny Knoxville to play a game of real-life operation and was in an episode of Portlandia in 2012. He opened Danger Valley Skate Shop in McMinnville, OR in 2005 but it closed in July 2014.
