Candle in the Tomb 鬼吹灯之精绝古城 begins airing on December 19, 2016 for 12 episodes. It is an adventure and horror drama starring Jin Dong, Chen Qiao En, Zhao Da and Yue Yang.

I’ve written a recap for the first episode.

Here is the plot synopsis that I translated roughly from Baidu Baike.

Hu Bayi (Jin Dong) travels to the countryside and arrives at the Sino-Mongolian border camp, bringing with him a book “Sixteen Words of Yin and Yang Feng Shui Secrets”. He is bored and memorizes the book well. Later he joins a group and they arrive in Tibet. In an avalanche encounter,  he falls into a deep underground trench, but applies knowledge of burial secret tactics to escape. After meeting up with the others again, Hu Ba Yi and his good friend Wang Pangzi (Zhao Da) join an archaeological team headed towards a site in Xinjiang. They go through various trials and arrive at the ruins of an ancient city in the Taklimakan Desert, arriving in an underground “ghost tunnel”. The tunnel, enshrined in mystery, has many traps and curiously seems to be controlled by a supernatural presence.

Shirley Yang (Chen Qiao En) is a Chinese-American who is a photographer for the National Geographic. Her personality was shaped by her Western upbringing, and she is bold, generous and cautious. She is familiar with archaeological + adventure equipment, and she is the calm figure in plights who is able to get everyone to safety.
