All the Celebrities and Civilians Taking Part

All the Celebrities and Civilians Taking Part

Peacock’s nail-biting new series The Traitors, based on the Dutch program of the same name, is set to premiere on the streaming platform on January 12.

The series, hosted by Alan Cumming, will see 20 contestants travel to a castle in the Scottish Highlands, where they will be tasked with a series of challenges they must complete to have a chance of winning a cash prize.

Three of the contestants are “the traitors,” who will come together to secretly devise a plan to steal the prize from the rest of the players, known as “the faithfuls.”

A British version of the show recently launched on the BBC, but the US version features a major twist as half of the contestants are reality television stars who will be familiar to viewers – and there are 10 civilian contestants playing alongside them.
