For US audiences, the first three episodes of The Traitors US season 2 will be released simultaneously on Peacock on January 12, while the remaining episodes will be downloaded on the platform every Thursday.
This means that, as with Season 1 of The Traitors US, viewers in the UK can expect to watch Season 2 of The Traitors US in full once it's released as a collection on iPlayer. This is because the BBC acquired The Traitors US from Peacock in the UK.
So, UK viewers will still be able to watch more of Believers and Traitors as they try to win the $250,000 (£206,000) jackpot. It may take a little longer.

However, the roundtables will continue where contestants will get the chance to vote to eliminate each other.
As before, if the faithful can successfully expel all traitors from the show during the roundtables, they will share the prize fund – but if at least one traitor survives in the final round, they will go home with the full amount. Prize pot.

What are traitors about?
Based on the Dutch series De Verraders, the show sees the contestants live in a castle in the Scottish Highlands in the hope of sharing the £120,000 prize fund for the UK series.
However, there is a twist – among them are the “Traitors”, a group of contestants chosen by the host on the first day.
The contestants will have to work hard to convince others that they are “loyal.” Meanwhile, traitors will be able to kill (eliminate) one believer every night.
Round tables will be held every day, and all contestants will be able to vote for who they believe is the traitor. The person with the most votes will be kicked out of the game and it will be revealed whether he is actually loyal or traitorous.
If the Believers can successfully eliminate all the traitors at the Round Table, they will share the prize fund. However, if any traitors remain in the game in the final round, they will receive all the winnings.
