Fans of the tense psychological adventure show Traitors will be delighted to know that a new season of Australian Traitors has dropped as we look at how to watch, who's host and how many episodes are there?

The UK version of Traitors - the BBC One show, hosted by Claudia Winkleman - has been such a hit with viewers that the BBC has snapped up rights to air the Australian version of the show.

While the UK show was filmed in the Scottish Highlands, this time, it will see a group of contestants arrive at a historic luxury hotel in the Southern Highlands in New South Wales, as Faithful contestants – hoping to share a prize fund worth up to A$250,000.  

Amongst them are the Traitors – a group of four contestants selected by the show's host on the first day, whose goal is to eliminate the Faithful’s and claim the prize for themselves.

For those who are new to The Traitors, it is a psychological reality game show centred around tactics, betrayal, suspicion and manipulation. Should the Faithful contestants eliminate all the Traitors, they will share the prize fund. If a Traitor makes it to the end, they steal the money.
