Why You Should Be Excited For The Traitors

We're just dying for The Traitors to start... and so are the Faithful.

The Traitors returns on August 13 at 7.30 on Network 10 and 10 Play on demand, and will once again see a handful of Aussies coming together to seek out the Traitors in their midst. But one wrong decision could be deadly...

The Faithful will work together in the hopes of winning a share of $250,000, but all is not what it seems as a handful of Traitors are hiding among the Faithful and are doing everything that they can to remain undetected. If a Traitor is able to make it all the way to the end without being detected they take all the cash for themselves.

Fans of games like Mafia or Ultimate Werewolf will be right at home in the tense evenings as the players attempt to interpret every glare, every comment, and every smirk to track down those among them that could spell their own bloody end.

Here's what you have to look forward to when The Traitors returns on Sunday, August 13 at 7.30 on 10 and 10 Play!

The host with the most:

Every good mystery needs a host, and there’s no one better than Rodger Corser to guide our players through this twisted psychological adventure of deception and manipulation.

The dashing host not only guides the participants through their life-or-death game but is quite literally hands-on in his role, selecting the Traitors by hand. But who, and how many will he pick?

A classic whodunnit with a mega twist:

We already mentioned the party games you may be familiar with, but the gorgeously lush setting and the styling of the surroundings invokes memories of the best murder mysteries. From Agatha Christie’s best to the cult-classic film Clue, The Traitors looks to join the ranks of a gorgeously grim affair.

Everyone has something to hide:

This season, familiar faces will go head-to-head with everyday Aussies, each with their own particular set of skills that could come in very handy when they need to sniff out the Traitors among them… and just as quickly turned against the group, sewing the seeds of distrust, and creating chaos in a desperate attempt to cover their own tracks and remain undetected.

We're along for the ride:

Whether you’re team Traitors or a friend to the Faithful, we’ll be safe and sound watching on at home as our favourites fight it out for our glorious entertainment... And we can’t wait!
