The Return of the Condor Heroes is a Taiwanese television series adapted from Louis Cha's novel of the same title. It was first broadcast on TTV in 1998 in Taiwan.



The series was poorly received in Taiwan and in other countries because Richie Ren and Jackyln Wu were seen to be poor choices as the leads. Some "innovations" were also widely criticised (Wu wears a black cloak instead of ethereal white as in the book). The series has also received negative criticism about not being faithful to the original story.
