The “Impractical Jokers” are ushering in a new era.

The comedy troupe from Staten Island will return with a new episode of its hidden-camera prank series on April 2, marking its first since longtime member Joe Gatto left the group.

The episode is set to feature “Impractical Jokers” staples Sal Vulcano, Brian “Q” Quinn and James “Murr” Murray teaming up with comedian Eric Andre, who is guest-starring.

It will debut on TBS, TNT and truTV following coverage of the NCAA Men’s Final Four basketball games, the networks announced Monday. It’s the first time “Impractical Jokers,” which typically airs on truTV, will premiere across all three sister networks.

Gatto, 45, announced on Dec. 31 that he was leaving “Impractical Jokers” after separating from his wife, saying in an Instagram post that he needed to “focus on being the best father and co-parent to our two incredible kids.”

“Impractical Jokers” wrapped up its ninth season last August. Monday’s announcement said new episodes are currently in production and will air weekly during the summer.
