ABC announced Friday that 'The Mole II' is returning for a full run starting Tuesday, May 28.

The network will air all 13 episodes of the show. Since the show was filmed last year, Anderson Cooper (CNN's "American Morning" ) obviously remains the show's host. Only three episodes of "The Mole II" aired during the fall. The show averaged a mere 5.6 million viewers at 8 p.m. Fridays.

The series returns with back-to-back episodes beginning at 8 p.m. ET May 28. ABC has another back-to-back airing set for Tuesday, June 4; the show settles into its regular timeslot at 9 p.m. ET Tuesday, June 4.

"We've always believed 'Mole II' was incredibly strong creatively, and we're excited about its potential to lure both loyal and new viewers to ABC this summer," says Andrea Wong, ABC's senior vice president for alternative series and specials. "We think the show will really click with viewers looking for fresh, original programming in the summer months."
