What is The Traitors on Peacock about?

Billed as a “psychological reality competition series” by the streamer, the show features 20 contestants in a remote castle in the Scottish Highlands who have to complete a number of challenges to win the cash prize of up to $250,000, per the synopsis. But there’s a twist, and this is where the title of the series comes in! Three of the competitors are actually “the traitors,” and come up with a plan to steal the prize from the others.

The trailer reveals some of the challenges the celeb contestants will have to go through, the drama when tensions run high, and Cummings’ great personality as host. Check out the video below:
