Filmed primarily at Ardross Castle in the Scottish Highlands, the second season’s official release date was announced by Peacock through a teaser that promises an enthralling new game.

The plot for Season 2 delves into a nail-biting psychological adventure where deception reigns supreme. Contestants, including notable reality show personalities and public figures, gather at an ancient castle in the Scottish Highlands, participating in exhilarating missions to build a prize fund potentially worth up to $250,000.

Amidst the Faithful participants are the Traitors, whose mission is to eliminate their fellow contestants stealthily, aiming to claim the prize for themselves. The gripping storyline involves the Traitors plotting murders under the cover of darkness while the Faithful work to uncover the Traitors’ identities and banish them from the game. The ultimate outcome rests on whether the Faithful can oust all Traitors to share the prize fund or if a Traitor manages to seize all the money.

Season 2 features an entirely new cast of 21 contestants, including notable figures like John Bercow, Johnny “Bananas” Devenanzio, Sandra Diaz-Twine, and more.

The series’ availability for streaming includes Peacock, BBC iPlayer, Network 10 in Australia, and Crave in Canada. Moreover, a new web program called The Traitors Postmortem will accompany the season, showcasing additional footage and interviews with eliminated contestants on Peacock and Peacock’s YouTube channel.

The official trailer teases exciting additions to the set and gameplay dynamics, introducing new areas like the scullery and the folly while altering challenge dynamics by replacing contestants’ visits to the armory with shield-winning challenges.

With its compelling premise and a cast of renowned personalities, The Traitors Season 2 promises an intense, gripping, and engaging viewing experience for audiences worldwide.
