The Nickelodeon game show series Legends of the Hidden Temple is getting a reboot on The CW, and the network has revealed a new poster and synopsis for its version of the show - check all of that out, below! Legends of the Hidden Temple was originally supposed to premiere on Quibi, but that plan fell through when the short-content streaming service fell apart in face of the COVID-19 pandemic. The CW scooped it up out of development limbo and announced that it would still make a return to the airwaves - albeit featuring adult contestants instead of children, this time.
Now here are further details about The CW's Legends of the Hidden Temple reboot, along with the new promo poster:
This supersized, adult version of LEGENDS OF THE HIDDEN TEMPLE is taken out of the studio into a “jungle” and scaled up with tougher challenges and much bigger prizes on the line. It preserves the original Nickelodeon series’ favorite elements including: “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.” Every episode is a hero’s journey through a mysterious jungle. Five teams begin the journey, but only one is “strong enough and smart enough” to enter the ominous Olmec’s Temple, avoid the “dreaded” Temple Guards, retrieve a lost treasure, and return 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 (“Paradise Run”).
"Once again, the gate to Olmec’s temple is about to open, but this time it’s for grown-ups!" the listing reads. "Doron Ofir Casting is thrilled to announce that for a select few contestants, the journey begins anew.
