The Traitors, a series based on a Dutch format called De Verraders, was a smash hit on Peacock. Conspiracies, puzzles and fierce rivalries involving a group of celebrities and everyday people attracted dedicated fans across the globe.
After the success of The Traitors US season 1, it was only a matter of time for another instalment. In February 2023, Peacock renewed the show for season 2 – here is everything we know so far.

When could The Traitors US season 2 release?
The cast of season 2 of The Traitors was revealed in September 2023. However, an exact air date has not yet been revealed.
They will most likely appear in early 2024, as season 1 premiered in January 2023 – stay tuned for more information.
What will season 2 of The Traitors US be about?
The show’s formula will remain the same. An old castle in the Scottish Highlands will bring together 21 contestants to compete for a maximum $250,000 cash prize. Before they get it, however, they have to face various physical and intellectual challenges to build up the pot.
Adding to the difficulty is that several ‘Traitors’ are hiding in the team and plotting against ‘the Faithful’ to take their money. Each night, the villains will choose a person to ‘murder’ and be removed from the programme. The group must deduce who the potential traitor might be and decide to ‘banish’ that participant.
The only major difference from the previous season is that that this edition will feature celebrities exclusively. Of course, we’re expecting to see some brand new challenges.
The second season of The Traitors US will consist of 11 60-minute episodes, and one reunion special.
Who are the contestants on The Traitors US season 2?

How to watch The Traitors US in the UK and abroad
You can, of course, watch the American version of The Traitors outside the US. However, you will need a VPN service (a virtual private network) to change your IP and sign in to Peacock’s US library. For this, you can use NordVPN, one of the most popular options of this kind.
Last year’s season was also syndicated on BBC iPlayer not long after it debuted on Peacock, so there is a chance that this will happen again.
