The Mole Release Date and Time Slot

The network has officially confirmed that The Mole is all set to premiere on Friday, October 7, 2022, and will conclude on October 21, 2022, quoting, “The Mole is back! Welcome to a new generation of deception. The three-week event begins October 7″. 

Moreover, let’s take most of the Netflix series into consideration with a bit of speculation. The upcoming season of The Mole will have the same premiere time as other shows on the streaming service, which is 12:00 AM (PT) or 3:00 AM (ET). In order to receive updates on when The Mole premieres on Netflix, interested viewers can also enable notifications.

The Mole Plot

The Mole is based on the Belgian format De Mol, last aired on ABC from 2001-08 with Anderson Cooper as one of the initial hosts. Though the series went off the air in the US years ago — the original Belgian version, De Mol, is still running — Wagner tells Tudum that she’s excited to follow in former host Cooper’s footsteps and introduce the show to a new generation. “The original Mole was a sort of seismic event in American television. It broke the mold,” she says.

“There’s every reason to watch the reboot because I think the concept of the show is ever more resonant today. We have refreshed a lot of the elements to make them even more compelling than the original — and that was pretty damn compelling.”

According to Netflix, 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 will win. Among the players is one person who has secretly been designated “the Mole” and tasked with sabotaging the group’s money-making efforts. Ultimately, one player will outlast their competition and expose the Mole to win the prize pot.

The Contestants: The season’s location is confirmed to be Australia with the list of full details about the 12 candidates released by Netflix, they’re all between 25 and 40, and two-thirds are in their mid-to-late 20s, who compete in physical and mental challenges in order to add money to their pot of prize money — only one of them is a traitor. The names are as follows: 

  • Avori Henderson, 26, Phoenix, professional gamer
  • Casey Lary, 39, Chico, California, COVID ICU nurse
  • Dom Gabriel, 29, Toronto, heavy machine operator
  • Greg Shapiro, 32, Seattle, marketing consultant

The Host: Alex Wagner, the host of MSNBC’s Alex Wagner Tonight, has been named host of Netflix’s The Mole reboot. In Tudum’s exclusive interview with the host, she also reveals what kind of person she thinks will do well on the series, which is all about trust. That’s “a person who is deeply in touch with their own emotional convictions,” she says. “Even if you know you’re lying to the rest of the group, you’ve got to sort of believe in your own lie.” Her own strategy, if she were playing? “Kill them with kindness.”

The original series, based on the Belgian format, was created by Bart De Pauw, Michel Vanhove, Michiel Devlieger, and Tom Lenaerts and distributed by Primitives. The reboot is produced by Holey Moley producer Eureka Productions with executive producers Chris Culvenor, Paul Franklin, Wes Dening, Rikkie Proost, David Tibballs, and David Burris.
