LOVERS of BBC’s The Traitors are in for a treat. If you’ve been desperate for your next fix of episodes, you no longer need to wait for news of a season two as BBC iPlayer has acquired The Traitors US.

The show hosted by Claudia Winkleman shocked the nation with its dramatic twists and tense discussions, with some describing it as one of the best pieces of British television in a long time, having been streamed over 28 million times on BBC iPlayer to date.

The Traitors is based on the Dutch show De Verraders which began in 2021 and has since been adapted into a UK, Australian and USA version. 

Hosted by Scottish actor Alan Cumming and set in a Highland estate, The Traitors US will feature 20 of America’s most cunning contestants - a mix of famous faces and everyday Americans.
