The Mole is returning for a second season. Netflix has renewed the reboot of the competition series which was inspired by the Belgian series of the same name. Alex Wagner hosted the first season of the series but was not mentioned in the press release about the renewal. Casting is now open for season two contestants.
In the series, contestants must work together to add money to a pot that only one of them will win. The twist is that one of the 12 players is a mole and is secretly working against the rest of the group.
