Last year’s best new reality TV format, The Traitors, is finally back here in the U.S.
Season two arrives just over a week after the UK’s second season began airing (and hopefully Peacock will gift us with that—and other international seasons—after season two airs).
Alan Cumming is back as host, of course, presiding over faithfuls and traitors who are mostly already reality TV stars, a stark difference from season one’s half-celebrity, half-civilian cast.
Peacock made a last-minute change and is now releasing the first three episodes tonight at 9 p.m. ET.
After that, it’s weekly on Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.
That’s a schedule I’m absolutely thrilled about. All-at-once shows overwhelm me, and I love that we can all watch together, rather than some of us knowing the winner(s) while others haven’t even started watching.
With that weekly release schedule, I’m going to treat this season like Survivor, recapping episodes individually. New recaps will appear here as they’re published, starting today with the first three. I can’t wait to discuss them with you!
