The Traitors has taken the world by storm over the past few years. Since the Dutch original, De Verraders, first premiered in 2021, English-language versions have spread across global television, most notably with The Traitors (US) and The Traitors (UK). Below, we'll show you all of your watch options for both versions, including where to watch The Traitors online for free.

The reality series puts 20+ contestants, from well-known figures like The Bachelor's Pilot Pete to everyday folk, in a castle together. The contestants complete activities to add to the prize money that the winners will split between themselves. Among the contestants are a handful of "Traitors," whose entire purpose is to deceive the others (known as "The Faithfuls") by getting rid of a Faithful at night and tricking everyone else into banishing someone innocent, instead of the true culprit. If this sounds familiar, it's because it's a lot like the party game Mafia.

Both seasons of The Traitors (US) and the first season of The Traitors (UK) have been available to stream on Peacock for some time. But now, the entire second season of The Traitors (UK) is also on the service, so American fans can get caught up on this year's new episodes. There, you can also find The Traitors (Australia) and The Traitors (NZ), so it's a bonafide Traitors feast for reality TV fans.

Keep reading to learn where to stream The Traitors US and The Traitors UK. We'll teach you how to watch both versions and suggest a VPN for international viewing.
