The 1990s Nickelodeon competition series Legends of the Hidden Temple is set to undergo a reboot treatment at The CW, according to Variety. Yet, instead of a kid-oriented competition, the reboot version will take on an adult-centered format. The series, which aired from 1993 to 1995, was a hit for the kids and teen network and operated the physical game show out of the Orlando Universal Studios.
The news of the competition series’ reboot at The CW follows the previous announcement that a revitalized version of Legends of the Hidden Temple would arrive on the mobile streaming service, Quibi. Yet, due to Quibi shutting down its service within its first year, it was unknown whether or not this exact reboot series will continue elsewhere prior to the announcement by The CW. Legends of the Hidden Temple would center on pairs of participants, sorted into the team names of Silver Snakes, Orange Iguanas, Red Jaguars, Blue Barracudas, Purple Parrots, and Green Monkeys. The competition series revolved around trivia-style questions, athletic challenges, and brain teasers while taking on elements of the story worlds of Indiana Jones and The Legend of Zelda.
The CW reboot of Legends of the Hidden Temple will focus on this adult audience and a nostalgic presence of the participants that viewed the original program. Currently, it is unknown when the series will begin production or premiere on the network, however, recently there have been applications to try out for the game show.
