BBC reveals future of The Traitors after two series on screens and string of awards | The Sun

THE BBC has revealed the future of hit show The Traitors after the first two series received acclaim.

Fans have been obsessed with the new reality programme ever since it hit screens last year.

Viewers eagerly tuned in to the Beeb each week to watch earthshaking betrayals and tense challenges all taking place in a Scottish castle in the Highlands.

And now Brits can look forward to more of the same as a third season has been announced.

The NTA and BAFTA award winning show will air its second series in November, but that won't be the end of the drama as plans have been made for another comeback.

Applications have opened for anyone who wants to apply to be one of the 22 players who take part in challenges and missions together while being "murdered" off by the traitors in their midst.
