They’re back! The intrepid treasure hunting trio of Hu Bayi, Shirley and Wang Pangzi returns with yet another action packed adventure in the tombs of Shaanxi. If you’ve missed them, it won’t be such a long wait now as the latest addition to the popular Candle in the Tomb franchise airs in a few days time.
Adapted from Zhang Muye’s best selling novel Ghost Blows Out the Light, the series’ fourth installment is entitled Candle in the Tomb: The Lost Caverns 鬼吹灯之龙岭迷窟 and will be 18 episodes long. Casting wise, I was a bit surprised when the production decided to recast Pan Yueming as Hu Bayi but I guess they weren’t all too concerned about encountering any disconnect from him playing Chen Yulou in the previous Candle in the Tomb: The Wrath of Time and then suddenly reappearing in the new one as Hu Bayi. Meanwhile, actress Zhang Yuqi will be playing Shirley Yang, Jiang Chao as Wang Pangzi, and Vengo Gao Weiguang returning as Zhe Gushao.
The Lost Caverns finds Hu Bayi, Shirley and Pangzi exploring the ancient tombs of Longling in Shaanxi province. While trying to escape a trap set out for them, Hu Bayi, Pangzi and Dajinya accidentally fell into the lost caverns of Longling where they learn of Zhe Gushao’s heroic quests. Will the adventurous explorers be able to outmaneuver the collection of villagers, treasure hunters, scary giant spiders and the booby traps set in the underground palace?

I felt really distressed by the recasting of pan yue…. He played what supposed to be sherly grandfather then other what is this know? If they couldn't get us jing dong they should cast new actor at least… Feel bad because i am real fan for pan yue. Since day and night ��
Zhegushao is Shirley's maternal grandfather who died overseas in US. Chen Yulou is unrelated. So should be fine to cast Pan Yue Ming. Hu Bayi is a more interesting character to play than Chen Yulou.
I am glad to see another production of this series. I love the others. I am happy that got two new artistes for Shirley Yang and Hu Bayi if they could not get both Joe and Jin Dong back as I dislikes sequels with half a pairing from the original. Good to see the same director. And glad to see Eddy Ko Hung is still acting, have not seen him for ages, and I miss him.
