'The Traitors' is getting a spin-off podcast.

The BBC's game of bluff and deception is returning for a second season early in 2024 with Claudia Winkleman at the helm, but fans will be treated to even more content for the upcoming run.

As reported by The Sun newspaper's TVBiz column, the BBC is planning a podcast delving into all the drama and treachery.

It's said each episode will feature celebrity superfans breaking down the events.

Meanwhile, the BBC Sounds podcast will also be filmed for television.

The main series sees 22 strangers pulled together in a Scottish castle, facing daily challenges to increase the cash prize.

However, among the Faithfuls are three Traitors, with the group tasked with eliminating one of their own in a bid to get rid of the Traitors.

News of the podcast comes as the broadcaster has already commissioned a third run, with applications open for people wanting to become one of the 22 strangers taking part.

Earlier this month Kalpna Patel-Knight, Head of Entertainment at the BBC, said: "The massive unscripted hit 'The Traitors' will be back for a third series.

"Expect to see more psychological gameplay, exciting challenges and of course Claudia at the helm.

"It will be a thrilling ride for both avid fans and newcomers to the series for sure. The BBC will always remain faithful to 'The Traitors.' "

Studio Almbert CEO, Stephen Lambert, added: "We’re delighted a third series of 'The Traitors' has been confirmed today ahead of the second series’ arrival on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.

"'The Traitors' has been so warmly received by viewers, critics and award juries alike.

"Claudia and the team look forward to keeping audiences on the edge of their seats again with ever more thrilling missions and exceptional players competing in this gripping game of bluff and skill."
