Olmec, the talking giant stone face, will be part of the show. Challenges familiar to millennial viewers like the Moat Crossing and the Temple Run will be included too, E! News reported on Monday.
There is a “grown-up” twist: the game show will take place in a jungle instead of a studio. Expect grander prizes and more difficult challenges as well to train for.
“Legends of the Hidden Temple” was released in 1993 and went on for three seasons. The original version had four rounds: The Moat, the Steps of Knowledge, the Temple Games and the Temple Run.
The series is executive produced by Nickelodeon and Stone & Company, founded by Scott A. Stone, a co-creator of the original show. Niña V. Guno/JB
