The Fate of 'The Traitors' Season 3 Is No MysteryEuan Cherry/Peacock

Are you already mourning The Traitors? I'm going to start wearing capes à la Alan Cumming and/or cheering when my roommate emerges at breakfast just to keep the spirit of The Traitors alive after season 2, HBU? Thankfully, this isn't the end of the reality competition series. Here's what we know about The Traitors season 3.

The Peacock series–which is based on a Dutch series and has sibling counterparts in the U.K., Australia, France, Canada, Sweden, Spain, Russia, Germany, Hungary, New Zealand, Ireland, Greece and more–made some tweaks in season 2. And we won't have to hold our breath for new details about the addictive series too long after the second season wraps up.

So is The Traitors coming back for season 3?

Yes!! The American version of The Traitors has been renewed for a third season. Peacock confirmed the news this week, also noting that Alan will continue to host the series. (Thank goodness.)

We don't know much else about the next season, but at least we know it's coming.

Who will be in The Traitors season 3 cast?

That is the question, isn't it? The all-famous season 2 cast could easily be divided into Bravolebrities (from The Real Housewives, Below Deck, Shahs of Sunset, etc.), gamers (from Big Brother, Survivor, etc.) and a hodgepodge of other talent including some Real World alums, a former Bachelor, a Drag Race star, and a former MP. This decision has created cliques among the Faithful and the Traitors, as well as a lot of drama...so it's safe to assume Peacock may try to recreate that formula in season 3.

This is purely a guess, but I wouldn't be surprised if one of the Team Bravo members came from Vanderpump Rules, given the show's boost in popularity over the last year. (But The Traitor's casting directors won a friggin' Emmy in 2023, so I won't question their genius.)

When is The Traitors season 3 coming out?

Here's a fun fact: Both season 1 and season 2 of The Traitors premiered on January 12, in 2022 and 2023 respectively. If the series is renewed and season 3 doesn't premiere on January 12, 2024, let's just saw that it was a missed opportunity.
