Two seasons of intrigue, betrayal, and murder just aren't enough: The Traitors, Peacock's Emmy Award-winning reality competition series hosted and produced by Alan Cumming, has been renewed for Season 3. The renewal comes just in time for the competition to really get messy in Season 2, which is currently airing new episodes every Thursday.

The Traitors is a nail-biting psychological adventure in which treachery and deceit are the name of the game. Television's most competitive reality stars and famous faces play the ultimate murder-mystery game. Hosted by award-winning actor Alan Cumming at an ancient castle set deep in the Scottish Highlands, contestants work together on a series of exhilarating missions to build a prize fund worth up to $250,000.

The catch? Hidden amongst the "Faithful" are the "Traitors," whose goal is to eliminate the Faithful and claim the prize for themselves. Under the cover of darkness, the Traitors murder the Faithful one by one in a treacherous spree, while the Faithful try to uncover the Traitors and banish them from the game. If the Faithful contestants banish all the Traitors, they will share the prize fund, but if one or more Traitors make it to the end, they will steal all the money and keep it for their own dastardly purposes ...
