THE TRAITORS AUSTRALIA 'AXED' AFTER TWO SERIES
The Australian version of hit reality format The Traitors has been axed after two series, due to poor viewing figures.
The series, which was acquired by BBC Three in the UK, was hosted by Rodger Corser. It's reported that channel bosses have not ruled out returning to the format in the future, but have no plans for a series next year.
Contestants in the game move into a majestic castle and work as a team to complete a series of dramatic and challenging missions to earn money for the prize pot. But three of the contestants are secretly traitors, who will attempt to deceive and manipulate their way to the prize by eliminating ‘loyal’ contestants.
In the UK, The Traitors was the biggest new series for young audiences across all BBC titles last year, and the highest rating new entertainment series on the BBC since at least 2017 for young audiences.
Hosted by Claudia Winkleman, The Traitors is a nail-biting psychological reality competition where 22 strangers play the ultimate game of detection, backstabbing and trust, in the hope of winning up to £120,000.
The Traitors Australia is available now on BBC iPlayer.
