What is 'The Traitors' about?

"The Traitors" is a reality show unlike any other. Designed like a murder mystery game, the series follows a group of players, known as the "Faithful," who must work together on physical challenges and cerebral escape-room-style missions to build up a cash prize pot. 

However, lurking among this group are cunning "Traitors" who are out to sabotage the group and sow discord in an effort to eliminate the true faithful one by one and steal the entire prize for themselves. Each night, under the cloak of darkness, the traitors perform a symbolic "murder," secretly choosing a Faithful to banish from the game.

However, the traitors risk exposure during each night's tense "banishment ritual," when the cast votes to eliminate a player they suspect of being a traitor. The accused make their case, and after someone is chosen, their identity as either a true faithful or traitor is revealed, allowing the remaining cast to see whether their powers of deduction were right on the money... or dead wrong. 

Hosted by Alan Cumming, this series has become a mega-hit for streaming service Peacock thanks to its blend of strategy, social deduction, and of course manipulation, and this new season looks to up the ante with several well-known reality heroes and villains, which should make for an exhilarating watch. 

Peacock has not announced a release date for the new season yet, but with the cast now announced we'd imagine that filming will be underway soon, meaning we could see a third season premiere potentially before the end of the year.
