The second series of The Traitors is expected to be released on the BBC in January. 

The Traitors arrived on UK screens for its first series in November 2022, providing us with dramatic moments and edge-of-your-seat television that gripped the nation.

The reality television game show focuses on a group of strangers living together in a Scottish castle, with some of them being secretly given the title of ‘Faithful’ and others being given ‘Traitor’.

The ‘Traitors’ must work together to eliminate ‘Faithfuls’, by ‘murdering’ them while avoiding being detected as a ‘Traitor’. 

The ‘Faithfuls’ must try to work out which of their fellow players are ‘Traitors’, and at the end of each episode, players must gather at the Round Table, to discuss who may be a ‘Traitor’, and ‘banish’ a contestant they suspect.

The aim of the show is to win the prize money which is up for grabs for both ‘Faithfuls’ and ‘Traitors’. The prize money is accumulated by the players participating in various challenges. 

The first series of The Traitors UK was an instant success with viewers at home, and many are looking forward to series two.
