With no end to the writers strike in sight, ABC has sifted through its vaults for new programming and found a pair of reality shows that have been on the shelves for the past few years.

If all goes according to plan, this summer will see the return of The Bachelorette, the XX-chromosome version of The Bachelor, says Variety. The Bachelorette, which last aired in 2005, is a glorified dating game, which sees one female pick from a heap of potential male suitors.

The network has not yet announced any specific details or if there will be any twists on the tried-and-true formula.

Earlier this week, the network announced that it also bringing back The Mole, which has been underground since 2003's Celebrity Mole. The Mole's format sees a group of contestants who must identify the "mole," a player who pretends to be a normal contestant and tries to stay incognito.

ABC has not announced a premiere date and is currently looking for contestants and someone to replace Anderson Cooper as host.

While The Mole features people trying to stay undercover and not noticed, a show featuring a pair of people trying to do anything to get noticed is also coming back. A&E; has renewed the reality show The Two Coreys for a second season, says The Hollywood Reporter.

The show follows former 1980s Teen Beat mainstays Corey Feldman and Corey Haim, who have appeared in several movies together including The Lost Boys and License to Drive. At the conclusion of the premiere season, the two former best buds were apparently at odds and reps claim they have not seen each other since.
