Nineties kids have spent many an hour watching Nickelodeon’s Legends of the Hidden Temple and wishing they could compete to assemble the Silver Monkey. Well, the wait was long, but those now-grown-up kids will soon be able to watch the adventure show again. Quibi, a mobile-only streaming service, has announced that the fan-favorite competition adventure show will be rebooted, but this time it’ll be geared toward adults.

Familiar elements will return, like the all-knowing Olmec, the Moat Crossing challenge, and of course, the Temple Run, but there will also be some pretty noticeable changes. According to Entertainment Weekly, “The entire set will be taken out of the studio, into a jungle, and scaled up with tougher challenges and bigger prizes on the line.”
That means this version of the hit show might actually feel a bit more realistic.
The show’s first run lasted three seasons, from 1993 to 1995, but made a big enough impact on children that it drew widespread calls for a remake.
The reboot is expected to premiere at the same time as Quibi’s launch, on April 6, 2020.
