The CW Network has ordered a reboot of the kids classic Nickelodeon adventure series Legends of the Hidden Temple, further expanding the network’s alternative programming slate.
The original series aired between 1993-1995 and was in syndication for nearly thirty-years. The reimagined edition will be an adult version of the original and feature such popular elements as “Olmec” — the giant talking Mayan head — the”Moat Crossings,” “The Steps of Knowledge,” the “Temple Run,” and of course, the iconic team names: “Purple Parrots,” “Blue Barracudas,” “Orange Iguanas,” “Red Jaguars,” “Silver Snakes” and “Green Monkeys.”
However, this time around the studio is jettisoned for a jungle with tougher challenges and bigger prizes. Five teams begin the journey, but only one will end up retrieving a lost treasure and returning it to its rightful owner.
Based on the original game show created by David G. Stanley, Scott A. Stone and Stephen R. Brown, Legends of the Hidden Temple is produced by Stone & Company Entertainment and Nickelodeon. The series is executive produced by Scott A. Stone and Marcus Fox.
The series’ premiere date and time will be announced later.
In December 2019, now-shuttered streamer Quibi had announced plans to revive and reimagine the the ’90s action-adventure competition series, with Stone & Company Entertainment and Nickelodeon producing.
