Original Host Kirk Fogg Returns to The CW's ‘Legends of the Hidden Temple’ Reboot

’90s Nick Kids rejoice! The CW’s reimagining of Nickelodeon's classic Legends of the Hidden Temple game show will welcome back its original host, Kirk Fogg!

Fogg will make the return beginning this Sunday, Nov. 7 for a four-episode arc, where he will serve as the contestant mentor as they take on the Temple Run. These appearances will have him reuniting with long-time associate, Dee Bradley Baker (Star Trek: Prodigy), who reprises his role as the voice of Olmec, as well as his blue denim shirt.

This reboot shares many of the original elements of the show — Olmec, the Steps of Knowledge, Temple Guards, Moat Crossing, team names — but with a more “grown-up” appeal, including bigger stunts and, this time, adult contestants.

Fogg’s appearance on Sunday, November 7 will also mark another reunion, as this week’s episode will feature contestants who first appeared on the original ’90s Nickelodeon version of the show.

Fogg previously returned to Legends of the Hidden Temple for Nickelodeon's hit live-action movie inspired by the iconic game show in 2016.

Legends of the Hidden Temple airs Sundays on The CW at 8 p.m ET/PT. Check out the season trailer below:

From TMZ:

With OG Contestants!!!

Get ready for a blast from the past ... Kirk Fogg says he's coming back as one of the faces of the rebooted '90s kids game show, "Legends of the Hidden Temple."

We got the former Nickelodeon host outside Starbucks in Studio City and he dished on what's to come in the rebooted CW version of 'Hidden Temple.'

Kirk doesn't want to let the cat out of the bag but he just can't hold his tongue ... telling us he's returning as a co-host Sunday alongside new host Cristela Alonzo ... and it doesn't sound like it's a one-episode deal.


Remember ... we also got Kirk back in May and he liked one of our photog's pitches on potential contestants.

Well, as it turns out ... Kirk says he was able to make the vision a reality ... and some contestants from the OG show, which he hosted for 3 seasons in the '90s, are getting a redo!!!

Kirk also gives us his thoughts on the new host and new look ... and tells us some fun stories from Olmec's original labyrinths.
