The Traitors is a new Peacock Original reality series in which twenty competitors meet in a dark castle to compete for a large financial reward. It has 20 contestants, some of them well-known reality personalities, who will participate in a variety of challenges in an effort to win cash prizes. But three of the competitors, known as “the traitors,” will try to steal the reward covertly from the other competitors, known as “the faithful.” Alan Cumming, a five-time Emmy nominee and a brilliantly hilarious emcee, will be presenting The Traitors.
There will be sparks among the cast of The Traitors, which includes both famous people and regular folks trying to win a financial prize by figuring out who among them is a traitor. All the celebrities have made appearances on reality shows before, but viewers will have to watch to find out if it helps or hurts them in The Traitors.
