A new reality competition television series is coming to your screens in January 2023, and it features a few familiar faces. Based on the Dutch show of the same name, The Traitors is drawing fans in with its cast, and we have everything you need to know about the competition before it premieres.
When will ‘The Traitors’ premiere?

The contestants will gather in a remote castle in the Scottish Highlands and compete in a series of challenges to win up to $250,000. However, as always with reality competition shows, there’s a catch, similar to The Mole onNetflix. There are three unknown “traitors” who are pre-selected by the producers, and their mission is to steal money from the other players, who are called “the faithful.”
