Attention Shoppers: Supermarket Sweep Is Coming Back to TV

“The time is ripe to bring back this all-time favorite game show which has traveled with such success over the years,” Vasha Wallace, executive vice president of Global Acquisitions and Development, said. “Now, modern technology allows us the opportunity to update the show, making it relevant for a 21st century audience.”

The show first aired on ABC in 1965, but most people remember the series from the Lifetime revival which aired from 1990 to 1995. It was a global sensation, and was adapted in 13 territories internationally.

For a dose of nostalgia, check out a clip from a 1993 episode below.
