Plot Synopsis

Hosted and executive produced by STRANGER THINGS' Gaten Matarazzo, PRANK ENCOUNTERS is a prank show that takes two complete strangers on the surprise ride of a lifetime. It's business as usual -- until their paths collide and their one-day assignments turn into supernatural surprises, as real people become the stars of their own full-blown horror movie. On Friday, October 25, 2019 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Netflix released the entire eight-episode first season of PRANK ENCOUNTERS.
The seven-episode sophomore season of PRANK ENCOUNTERS debuted on Thursday, April 1, 2021, as Netflix released the entire new season. In Season 2, Gaten Matarazzo pulls the strings on even more elaborate pranks involving everything from haunted mansions to ancient burial grounds. In the season opener, "These Walls Can Talk," two unsuspecting women contend with creepy residents -- both "passed" and present -- while preparing a massive mansion to be sold.
