Last November keshi-heads found the announcement of an Arabic remake of TC being created for the coming Fall, brought to the country by the prince himself! He says he signed the contract to encourage kids to get more exercise. I like this, but still hope it doesn't focus on that message too much. As long as it stays a lighthearted show, it should do fine anyway!
Even more exciting and shocking is that they claim that they'll have FIFTY different games, which is far more than we've seen from any other remake. For reference, Thailand had the closest to this amount of games and they only had 22! So this should be massive if it's true and all the games are of the scale we expect. Appearrently, some of these games will be custom-games not seen on the original series. Not sure how I feel about this, but as long as the vast majority of challenges are ones we're already familiar with, we should be good. I'm just crossing my fingers that these games fit-in with the others and keep the right vibe (not doing this could make the show horrible).
The one weird thing is that the show is only planned to last 13 episodes :/. Obviously as a hardcore keshi-head, I'm always hoping for more TC, plus it seems a bit wasteful having 50 games for only 13 episodes. Unless they make the episodes ridiculously long (please don't ), then most games would only be seen once or twice, which feels really wrong. Let's just hope there're more episodes if(/when ) it does well!
No pictures yet, but it is still half-a-year off, to be fair. I thought I'd post this here is case anyone finds pictures/videos and can share them. I'll do the same if I find any!
