Say what you will, Netflix does work hard to bring new shows to its vast audience. From cooking shows to crime documentaries, it has all the genres covered. So it is no surprise that the streaming giant is now exploring the reboot territory. And among its many reboots, Netflix is ready to bring out its latest with ‘The Mole’, a survival show.

‘The Mole’ is an adaptation of a Belgian reality show titled ‘De Mol’, that first aired in 1998. The format of the show has been used in 40 countries worldwide. The most prevalent version is ‘Wie is de Mol?’, from the Netherlands, which has been going for 22 seasons since 1999. The US, too, had its version of the show, which aired in 2001. But after the first two seasons aired, it was canceled owing to low ratings. Journalist Alex Wagner will host Netflix's reboot of the show. Some other shows that Netflix has rebooted in recent years include ‘House of Cards’, 'Gilmore Girls’ and ‘Fuller House’.

What is ‘The Mole’ all about?

Players on ‘The Mole’ gather to complete assignments to earn money for the group pot. But among them, one of the players is the titular “Mole”, designated to sabotage the assignments and cause the group to earn the least money for the winner’s pot. The players will also take multiple-choice tests about the identity of the “Mole”; the player with the worst score in their assessment will be disqualified. The player with the highest score is declared the winner and receives the group’s pot. The Mole’s identity will only be revealed in the series finale.
