It didn't take the BBC long to commission a further two series of the popular show and season 2 of "The Traitors" saw the British public glued to their TVs once again throughout January. 

The reality series mines the deepest seams of the human condition, with a scenario that rewards scheming and treachery. A select few contestants (though we won't spoil who here) were attributed the title of Traitor and teamed together to one-by-one eliminate the other players — the so-called Faithfuls — from the game. Regardless of the side they're on, the players had just one aim: taking home a share of that £120,000 maximum jackpot.

Set in the surrounds of Ardross Castle in the majestic Scottish Highlands, the testing cerebral and physical challenges helped the participants to build up the ultimate prize fund. After which there were daily 'banishments' where the contestants got to vote off the person they believed to be a Traitor, and 'murders' where players were booted from the castle on the Traitors' command, narrowing down the pool of potential winners. It was highly addictive stuff, with alliances forged; conclusions jumped to and confidences betrayed.

Ready to be caught in Claudia's dastardly game once more? Here's everything you need to watch "The Traitors" U.K. season 2, in full, online. Stream it all no matter where in the world you are.

Streaming service Peacock is the home of all things "The Traitors" in the U.S., with the second season of the country's own version airing now.

For that reason, perhaps, it isn't streaming the second run of the U.K. iteration quite yet. We'd imagine that it will follow the climax of "The Traitors" U.S. season 2. So maybe March.

Until then, if you're a Brit in the U.S., you can watch "The Traitors" U.K. season 2 online on the BBC iPlayer by using a VPN such as ExpressVPN.
