When the reboot of the classic game show Legends of the Hidden Temple hits television screens this fall on The CW, fans will hear a very familiar voice.

Dee Bradley Baker, who voiced the iconic talking statute Olmec during its memorable run on Nickelodeon, will once again lend his voice (and puppeteer skills) to the character.

"When we asked Dee Bradley Baker to return as the one and only Olmec – our giant talking stone head, and he said, 'Let's Rock,' that was all I had to hear…Olmec lives!" said Scott Stone, executive producer and a co-creator of the original series, Variety reported.

The action-adventure game show was first set for its comeback at Quibi, but was saved by The CW when the mobile entertainment platform went bust.
