The BBC has revealed a first look for season 2 of show “The Traitors.” Season 1 was a huge success and won two BAFTAs, including for host Claudia Winkleman. Set in a Scottish castle, the format sees 22 strangers compete in a series of missions for a chance to win £120,000 ($151,000). However, amongst the players lie the ‘Traitors,’ who meet in secret and decide who to eliminate from their fellow players known as ‘Faithfuls.’
“The Traitors” will return on Jan. 3, 2024 on BBC One and BBC iPlayer and episodes two and three will be available on iPlayer immediately after. The show will air on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights.
The BBC is also launching a podcast “The Traitors: Uncloaked,” hosted by stand up comedian and presenter Ed Gamble, that will take fans of the show deeper into the castle with dissection of the episodes and exclusive access to the banished and murdered players.
