 Do Frozen Superworms Ever wake up?

I have a good amount of superworms, But the problem is, they are frozen. (Not really frozen but when I bought them they had been in a fridge) My question is, will they ever wake up? My Leopard Gecko loves to eat them alive. She gets a lot of her exercise from chasing them around (a bit creepy) Can Anybody help me out?
They haven’t turned black yet and none of them seem to be curling up for the pupa stage. Will they ever wake up or no?

the warmer the place the more active they are keep them in your room for a day(with an apple inside for them to eat).

Never buy them from a store where they keep them in a fridge. Mealworms are suppose to be refridgerated so that they don’t pupae, but superworms are supposes to be at a temp above 47 degrees. Better luck next time.

lizard mania is right mealworms can be refrigerated with no ill effect but not superworms they normally die if refrigerated
