"Supermarket Sweep" is a television game show that ended in 2003. Recently, Netflix released classic episodes of the hit show.


"I don't know who needs to hear this but 15 episodes of the iconic Supermarket Sweep are now on Netflix in The US," the streaming service announced on Twitter on July 7.

A restoration of "Supermarket Sweep" has also been underway for ABC with comedian and actress Leslie Jones planned to be the new host, as reported by Today.



In a statement a year ago, Jones admitted that she has consistently longed for being on "Supermarket Sweep." The "Saturday Night Live" alum even tried out for the show years back.

"After getting turned away, I knew I'd have to take matters into my own hands," Jones said. "Being able to bring the iconic game show back to life on ABC is my ultimate redemption story!"

Meanwhile, a representative for ABC Disney recently affirmed that the iconic show was a part of 2020-2021 primetime schedule of the network. However, ABC has not reported a debut date.

It was not quickly clear if the COVID-19 pandemic has affected filming, which was initially planned to begin this spring.


"Supermarket Sweep" originally aired in 1965 for just two seasons, as reported by Woman's Today. It was restored from 1990-1995 and then again from 2000-2003.

There are also 40 "Supermarket Sweep" episodes that are now available on Amazon Prime Video.


According to Today, it has been off the air since. However, there are global versions of the show such as the one currently airing in the UK.

For anybody needing a refresher, the "Supermarket Sweep" started with a series of trivia questions where challengers bid for time.


Groups then dashed around a supermarket set with shopping carts to gather the most costly things. The group with the most expensive things in their cart toward the end was announced the victor.

In addition to the episodes streaming on Netflix and forthcoming reboot, there are also 40 "Supermarket Sweep" episodes that are now available on Amazon Prime Video, as reported by Pop Sugar.

That means there are many ways for those of us who live for the adventure of a shopping cart hazardously tilting past a frozen food area.
