The Supersized, Adult Version of The Beloved ‘90s Competition Series To Preserve Many of The Favorite Elements of The OriginalBy CW Philly Staff

May 11, 2021 (Burbank, CA) – The CW Network has ordered a new, reimagined edition of the iconic Nickelodeon adventure series LEGENDS OF THE HIDDEN TEMPLE, further expanding the network’s alternative programming slate. The series’ premiere date and time will be announced later.

This supersized, adult version of LEGENDS OF THE HIDDEN TEMPLE preserves many of 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.” Only this time, the entire show is taken out of the studio into a “jungle” and scaled up with tougher challenges and much bigger prizes on the line. 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.
