The wait for the highly anticipated second season of The Traitors is almost over! Today, Peacock released the official trailer and announced the psychological adventure will be returning on January 12th.
“Welcome to an all new season of strategy, betrayal, sabotage, and murder.”
The Traitors, television’s most mysterious reality series is hosted by LGBTQ icon Alan Cumming. The show is set in a remote castle deep in the Scottish Highlands, where 21 reality stars and other notable figures come together to compete in a series of challenges with the objective of earning a cash prize of up to $250,000.
The star studded cast includes reality stars from all your favorite series like Survivor, Love Island, Big Brother, Bling Empire, The Bachelor, The Real Housewives, and more.
This season also includes Ru Paul’s Drag Race alum and GLAAD Board Member Peppermint! Peppermint is not only a drag performer, but an actress, singer, and DJ who has dedicated much of her career to advocating for the LGBTQ community. She was also the first trans woman to originate a principal role on Broadway in the hit musical Head Over Heels.
Other stars this season include Survivor’s Parvati Shallow and Sandra Diaz-Twine, The Challenge’s Chris ‘C.T.’ Tamburello and Johnny “Bananas” Devenanzio, The Real Housewives of Miami’s Larsa Pippen, The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Shereé Whitfield, The Real Housewives of Orange County’s Tamra Judge, The Bachelor’s Peter Weber, Basketball star Marcus Jordan, and Dancing with the Stars’ Maksim Chmerkovskiy just to name a few!
No one should be trusted in this season filled with “diabolical twists.”
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 season’s first three episodes will be available to stream Friday, January 12th and then weekly on Thursdays at 6pm PT/9pm ET. This season also features an official per-episode after show, The Traitors Postmortem, featuring additional footage and interviews with eliminated contestants. Available only on Peacock.
