The Traitors NZ to Return July 1

Season two of The Traitors NZ will stream on ThreeNow and screen on Three twice-weekly from July 1.

Here’s the media release:


Sunday 16 June 2024 – Warner Bros. Discovery ANZ has unveiled the 22 contestants who daringly signed up for the second season of The Traitors NZ, premiering Monday 1 July on ThreeNow and Three.

Season two brings together a unique and diverse cast of unknown Kiwis, who have dared to put their heads on the chopping block to play the ultimate game of betrayal and deceit.  The winner will take home a prize pool worth up to $100,000.

These death-defying players will join returning host Paul Henry in a brand-new South Island location at Claremont Manor at the foot of Mt Horrible – located on the aptly named Mt Horrible Road!

Paul Henry says: “I love that they’re all everyday New Zealanders and we say everyday New Zealanders like they’re somehow inferior to celebrities – of course they’re not.

“Your range of everyday New Zealanders are just as interesting, just as exciting, just as varied, just as dynamic as anyone else but there aren’t preconceptions about them, and they don’t have preconceptions about each other, so the audience will live this game with them in a much more realistic way.”

Hidden amongst the cast are the ‘Traitors’, whose goal is to eliminate the ‘Faithful’ contestants by ‘murdering’ them one by one.

The players must uncover the Traitors and banish them from the game. If the Faithful contestants banish all the Traitors, they will share the prize fund but if a Traitor makes it to the end, they will steal all the money.

From Invercargill to Auckland, our cast ranges in age from 22 to 70 years.  Among the cast are a clairvoyant, a council manager, a teacher and an MMA fighter – to name a few.

Warner Bros. Discovery ANZ Senior Director Commissioning Vicki Keogh says: “Building on the success of the first series we’ve upped the ante for season two and really leaned into what makes this brilliant format compelling.

“The Players think they know how to play the game but this time around we have a few surprises in store, thanks to the team at South Pacific Pictures who have brought their own dramatic flair to this epic series.”

Stream The Traitors NZ first on ThreeNow from Monday 1 July, and at 7:00pm on Three each Monday and Tuesday evening.

The Traitors was created by All3Media’s IDTV and The Traitors NZ was produced by South Pacific Pictures for ThreeNow and Three.
