The concept and success of The Traitors

The Traitors is like the party game Mafia but on steroids.

The faithful have to figure out who the traitors are before it’s too late.

The show has been a massive hit for Peacock, bagging an Emmy for outstanding casting for a reality programme in season 1 and becoming the number one unscripted series in the US during season 2’s launch week. Each season is a wild ride of alliances, betrayals, and mind games, and season 3 is set to up the ante even more with its eclectic mix of contestants.

What to expect from The Traitors season 3?

Get ready for an explosive mix of strategy, deception, and drama this season. With such a diverse and dynamic cast, viewers can expect plenty of twists and turns. Imagine the countdown clock on a mission being more theatrical than practical, giving contestants more time than they realise.

Anticipate moments where someone, perhaps Sam Asghari, gets grilled about his past relationship with Britney Spears, only to artfully dodge the question. Expect Dylan Efron to bring up his famous brother Zac at some point, while Chrishell Stause, Gabby Windey, and Bob the Drag Queen might just form a powerful alliance, leaving others like Bob Harper feeling a bit left out.

Tom Sandoval will either be cast as a Traitor or be suspected of it regardless, adding layers of intrigue. Lord Ivar Mountbatten might face curious questions about royal family members, and Robyn Dixon could unexpectedly become a key player despite initial doubts. The men from Survivor are likely to form strong bonds, while Dorinda Medley could be an early casualty in the game. Finally, host Alan Cumming will continue to impress with his increasingly eccentric and fabulous outfits, maybe even donning a full suit of armour. This season promises to keep viewers on the edge of their seats, full of unexpected alliances, strategic moves, and dramatic reveals.

When does The Traitors season 3 release and where can you watch it?

Although the official release date has not yet been announced, viewers can expect the new season to drop around January 2025, keeping in line with the release schedules of the previous seasons. Similarly, the show will return to Peacock this time around as well.
