The network also announced the premiere date for the farewell season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and a new series from ABC News, The Genetic Detective.

Holey Moley, the 13-episode extreme mini-golf competition series, swings into season two as Holey Moley II: The Sequel on Thursday, May 21 (9:00 – 10:00 p.m. EDT). The sophomore season will showcase self-proclaimed mini-golf lovers from around the country as they compete head-to-head through an epic obstacle golf course. In each episode, eight contestants will put their miniature golf – and physical – skills to the test as they face off in out-of-this-world challenges on the supersized course. The winners of each episode will return to the Holey Moley course for the all-star grand finale, where only one will be crowned winner and claim the $250,000 prize.

Holey Moley is produced by Eureka Productions and Unanimous Media. Chris Culvenor, Paul Franklin, Wes Dening, Charles Wachter, Michael O’Sullivan, Jeron Smith, Erick Peyton and Stephen Curry serve as executive producers. Rob Riggle, Joe Tessitore and Jeannie Mai are featured as on-camera commentators and sideline correspondent, respectively. Holey Moley is an original format created by Chris Culvenor of Eureka Productions. Beginning June 11, the series will shift its time slot to 8:00 p.m.

Hosted by black-ish star Anthony Anderson, To Tell the Truth will debut its fifth season on Thursday, May 21 (10:00 – 11:00 p.m. EDT). The funny reimagination of the beloved game show, featuring prominent pop-culture icons and unique commentary and banter from Anderson’s mother, Mama Doris, will bring the excitement to another level. In each round, the panel is presented with three people who all claim to be the same person with the same incredible talent, job or achievement. One is sworn to tell the truth while the other two use every trick they can to deceive the panel. The panel of celebrities has a chance to grill each participant before taking turns deciding who they think is telling the truth.

Additional celebrity panelists this season include Ashanti, Brad Garrett, Michael Strahan, Mark Duplass, Mike Tyson, Patti LaBelle, Rita Moreno, Yara Shahidi, and many more. To Tell the Truth is produced by Fremantle. Alycia Rossiter is showrunner and executive producer, and Jennifer Mullin, Jeff Gaspin, George Moll and Anthony Anderson are also executive producers.
