The Traitors Australia on BBC

June 23, 2023

The BBC has announced that The Traitors will be back on UK screens this summer, and this time the action takes place in Australia.

The Traitors Australia has been acquired by the BBC and is another series of the reality game show that will this time see a group of contestants arrive at a historic luxury hotel in the Southern Highlands as Faithful contestants – hoping to share a prize fund worth up to A$250,000. Amongst them are the Traitors – a group of four contestants selected by host Rodger Corser on the first day, whose goal is to eliminate the Faithfuls and claim the prize for themselves.

The show is centred around tactics, betrayal, suspicion and manipulation. Should the Faithful contestants eliminate all the Traitors, they will share the prize fund. If a Traitor makes it to the end, they steal the money.

Nasfim Haque, Head of Content at BBC Three, commented: “The Traitors is an addictively fiendish format and I am so pleased that viewers can get their summer fix of treachery and suspicion as we head Down Under for the Australian version of the show on BBC Three and iPlayer.”

The Traitors Australia will start on BBC Three on July 9th and all 12 episodes will be available as a boxset on BBC iPlayer on the same day.

The Traitors Australia is the third version of the series available to BBC viewers, following the first UK series produced by Studio Lambert and hosted by Claudia Winkleman and The Traitors US, both of which are available to watch now on BBC iPlayer.

The shows were licensed through All3Media International.
