Hit BBC series “The Traitors” gained legions of fans when it was released in Nov. 2022, and we have been eagerly awaiting season two of the psychological game ever since. The internet went wild when a teaser trailer aired in the ad break of “Strictly Come Dancing” on 28 Oct., but it doesn’t look like the compulsive viewing will be returning this side of Christmas. Despite the Claudia Winkleman-fronted TV show becoming a huge hit over the Christmas limbo period last year, Studio Lambert, who make the series, tweeted on X (formerly Twitter) on 24 Nov.: “You think you know how to play the game… you don’t #TheTraitors, coming to @BBCOne and @BBCiPlayer early 2024”.

However, we do know that the BBC confirmed “The Traitors” has already been commissioned for a third season, even before the second series has aired. So at least we have a double fix to look forward to in the future.

Kalpna Patel-Knight, head of entertainment at the BBC, said on 3 Nov.: “The massive unscripted hit The Traitors will be back for a third series. Expect to see more psychological gameplay, exciting challenges and of course Claudia at the helm. It will be a thrilling ride for both avid fans and newcomers to the series for sure. The BBC will always remain faithful to The Traitors.”

The series was such a success that celebrities have been just as obsessed as us. Taking to the BBC’s Twitter on 3 April, host Claudia Winkleman confirmed that the second series was going ahead, as well as inviting viewers to apply, while standing next to someone dressed in that iconic traitors cape. Suddenly, the hood is removed to reveal Courteney Cox!

The “Friends” actor appears to be a huge fan of the show too, asking, “Claudia, can I please do it?”, to which Winkleman responded: “I’ve said to you before, no. You cannot apply if you’re a celebrity or as famous as this one. Now, off you go.” What we would give to see Cox take on the round table. . . .

Read on for everything we know so far about “The Traitors” season two.

What Is “The Traitors” About?

If you’re not familiar with the show, the time to get on board is now. Premiering in Nov. 2022, “The Traitors” is a game which follows 22 contestants — 19 of them are called “faithfuls” while three of them have been given the role of “traitor” in secret — who compete to get to the final to win the prize fund. Each night, the traitors choose a fellow contestant to “murder”, removing them from the game. All contestants then participate in the round table at the end of each episode to eliminate a person whom they all believe to be a traitor. The aim is for only faithfuls to be left at the end of the game to split the money, but if one of them happens to be a traitor, then they take the lot. There are so many twist and turns along the way, too. Trust us, it’s compulsive viewing.

Who Will Host “The Traitors” Season 2?

“Strictly Come Dancing” host Claudia Winkleman was the ultimate host for season one, and it’s been confirmed she is back for season two and three. Not only was she just as invested as the rest of us in the game, but her wardrobe was second to none. Set in Ardross Castle in the Scottish Highlands, Winkleman’s “The Traitors” wardrobe was aptly made up of tweed, boots, and tailoring to perfectly complement the location, and we cannot wait to see more.

Who Is in “The Traitors” Season 2 Cast?

It could be you! Applications are now open to apply to be one of the 22 taking part in the game show. Head to the BBC Take Part page to enter for the chance to be on “The Traitors” season three and be a part of “a game of trust and treachery”.

What Is “The Traitors” Season 2 Release Date?

We don’t have a confirmed release date just year. The first 12-part series was released on 29 Nov. and was filmed over late spring / early summer. We were hoping for a similar release date in November 2023, but it’s looking likely to be aired in early 2024. At least we have something to look forward to to curb our January Blues.
