Netflix has grown to be a popular destination for reality television programming. With a reimagining of The Mole, the company has expanded its offering.
According to Variety, a ten-episode new version of the classic competition show has been ordered by the streaming service. Its reputation was always that it was one of the finest concepts that never gotten the attention it needed.
For those who are unaware, here's the basic premise: Contestants must work together to solve puzzles and complete tasks, earning a good deal of money for the pot. However, there is also one person actively trying to sabotage the others, who is the Mole, and at the conclusion of every episode, contestants take a quiz about the person's identity.
This concept requires a great deal of planning. If you feel like you know who the Mole is, you may intentionally begin sabotaging competitions in order to emphasize yourself as a potential candidate. With that, you have a good chance of shoving other players away and improving your own game.
Over the years, the show has had a number of different adaptations, including two celebrity versions and a brief revival in the late 2000s. For us personally, the first two seasons are the gold standard. He played a relatively unknown (at the time) character, and Netflix should invest as much money as possible in him to get him to return.
Lets just hope the new version will be as sharp and thematically cool as the OG Mole was. We cant wait to see it.
