Nickelodeon is reviving its 1990s game show Figure It Out with an order of 40 new eps and a raft of new celeb guests.

Set to premiere later this year, Figure It Out challenges celebrities to guess kid contestants’ unique talents and skills. The series is slated to begin production in April in L.A. with host Jeff Sutphen.

Every Figure It Out episode features a panel of celebrities trying to guess the unique feat or accomplishment of two kid contestants, in three rounds of game play, by asking yes or no questions and being bombarded by messy visual and tactile clues. For every round the panel fails to figure it out, the contestant wins a prize. If, after three rounds, the panel can’t figure out the kid’s unique feat, the contestant takes home the grand prize. Each game culminates in the reveal of the talent with an in-studio demo.
Figure It Out originally aired for four seasons on Nickelodeon from July 1997 to December 1999 and was hosted by Olympic gold medalist swimmer Summer Sanders. Panelists from the original broadcast included Kenan Thompson, Aaron Carter, Amanda Bynes, Chris Jericho, Coolio, Jack Hanna, Sherman Helmsley, Evander Holyfield, Joe Namath, Julius Erving, Michelle Trachtenberg, Mike O’Malley and Mya, among several others.
The series was created by Kevin Kay and Magda Liolis with Eileen Braun and Magda Liolis, currently serving as executive producers.
