The Mole arrived on ABC in the U.S. at the turn of the century after a successful run in Belgium. Over the course of seven years, Ahmad Rashad and Anderson Cooper led the popular reality competition series before it ultimately ended in 2008. Nearly fifteen years later after its final goodbye on cable television, the series is back in a new way on Netflix. This week, the streaming giant shared the first look at the revamped edition of the popular reality series.
“The Mole is a high-stakes competition series and in this reimagined version, twelve players work together in challenges to add money to a pot that only one of them will win at the end. Among the players is one person who has secretly been designated ‘the Mole’ and tasked with sabotaging the group’s money-making efforts,” the synopsis reads.
“In the end, one player will outlast their competition and expose the Mole to win the prize pot.”
Netflix has already had a successful streak with reality series like The Ultimatum and Love Is Blind. Will they be able to do it again with The Mole? Watch the trailer and find out when a new season arrives on October 7, 2022.
