Kate will return to the game of deceit and deception on January 25, and Dr. Will is joining later this season as a special guest. New episodes will debut weekly on Thursday at 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET moving forward.

The Traitors is a nail-biting psychological adventure in which treachery and deceit are the name of the game. Entertainment’s most competitive reality stars and famous faces play the ultimate murder mystery game.

Peacock Reveals Two Surprise The Traitors Season 2 Additions

Hosted by award-winning actor Alan Cumming at an ancient castle set deep in the Scottish Highlands, contestants work together on a series of exhilarating missions to build a prize fund worth up to $250,000. Hidden amongst the Faithful are the Traitors, whose goal is to eliminate the Faithful and claim the prize for themselves.

Under the cover of darkness, the Traitors murder the Faithful one by one in a treacherous spree while the Faithful try to uncover the Traitors and banish them from the game. If the Faithful contestants banish all the Traitors, they will share the prize fund, but if a Traitor (or Traitors) makes it to the end, they will steal all the money.

The Traitors Season 2 also features an official per-episode after-show, The Traitors Postmortem, featuring additional footage and interviews with eliminated contestants.

Sponsored by State Farm, the after-show will stream on Peacock following new episodes and on Peacock’s YouTube the following day.

From Studio Lambert, the second season of the Peacock series will consist of eleven 60-minute episodes. The executive producers include Stephen Lambert, Mike Cotton, Toni Ireland, Sam Rees-Jones, Tim Harcourt, and Jack Burgess.

The show was created by IDTV, an All3Media company, and further developed with the RTL Creative Unit.
