“The Traitors” is a bold new game show coming to Peacock filled with lies, backstabbing, and a handful of familiar faces. With the premiere of the new show looming, many may be wondering how to watch.
The answer to that is pretty simple. “The Traitors” is a Peacock original series, meaning the only place to watch is with a subscription to Peacock. On Thursday, Jan. 12, all 10 episodes of the Alan Cumming-hosted game show will drop on the streaming service for people to binge-watch at their leisure.
The show itself sees Cumming invite a slew of competitors to his gorgeous and remote castle in the Scottish Highlands to play a high-stakes game where people will complete a series of physical and mental challenges to wrack up a prize pool of up to $250,000. However, not everyone will make it to the end. Mixed in with the players, known as the “Faithful,” are three “Traitors” whose identities remain a secret. In each episode, the Traitors will choose one person to “murder” in the night, removing them from the competition. Then, the players will gather and vote for someone to "banish," hoping they’ve gathered enough clues to suss out the Traitors.
There’s a lot here for fans of both game shows and reality TV. The cast includes newcomers hungry to prove they’ve got what it takes to get to the end as well as a handful of celebrities such as former “Bachelor” Arie Luyendyk Jr., and Bravo-lebrities such as Brandi Glanville of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" and Kate Chastain from "Below Deck.” Meanwhile, fans of USA Network’s “Snake In The Grass” may recognize former contestants Cirie Fields and Rachel Reilly, who came to the show by way of “Survivor” and “Big Brother” respectively.
Will their time on those shows give them an advantage in this new game? Will the newcomers create enough of a stir to throw off their otherwise seasoned skills? Those curious will just have to tune into “The Traitors” on Peacock on Jan. 12 to find out.
