TBS hit series Deal With It is set to return this fall with a whole new batch of crazy ambushes.

Deal With It returns with new episodes Friday, Oct. 24, at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT).
In each episode of Deal With It, members of the public are secretly recruited to pull a prank on their unwitting companions with absolutely no time to prepare. If they agree to participate, they must obey all instructions given through an earpiece from a secret control room nearby. With the opportunity to prank their way to cash and prizes, these everyday people are shown no mercy as they are tasked with pulling off some of the most ridiculous behavior ever caught on hidden camera.

Among the guest stars who are lined up for this fall's episodes are Nick Cannon (America's Got Talent), Ross Mathews (Chelsea Lately), Bobby Lee (MADtv), Jerry O'Connell (Sliders), Marlon Wayans (Scary Movie), Jack Osbourne (The Osbournes), Kym Whitley (I Love You, Man), Jessimae Peluso (Girl Code), Andrew “King Bach” Bachelor and Jeannie Mai (The Real) among others. Past guests include Adam Carolla, Josh Gad, Kelly Osbourne, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Arsenio Hall, Bill Engvall, Kevin Nealon, Alex Mandel, Chris Jericho, Bob Saget, Tom Green, Orlando Jones and Moshe Kasher.
