History Lesson

Adapting Intrigue: The Traitors from Dutch Origins to American Screens

"The Traitors," a riveting American reality series, originated from the Dutch show "De Verraders," featuring a unique blend of psychological gameplay and strategic maneuvering. This concept of mingling loyalty and deception was brilliantly adapted for the UK audience before making its way to American screens. Hosted by the enigmatic Alan Cumming, the American version premiered on Peacock in January 2023 and quickly distinguished itself by preserving the core elements while injecting distinct cultural flavors.

In adapting the show, producers maintained the original's compelling format where contestants, split into "Faithfuls" and "Traitors," engage in a deceit-filled battle to secure a cash prize. Set in a Scottish castle, a nod to the grandeur of European settings, the American version capitalizes on elaborate missions and the suspense of nightly eliminations. The Traitors must covertly "murder" the Faithfuls, who in turn must identify and banish the Traitors to protect their numbers and their shot at the prize.

The transition from the Dutch version to the American adaptation involved subtle changes to cater to a broader, culturally diverse audience. While both the British and American versions are filmed at the same castle and share many props and challenges, the American adaptation differentiates itself with its hosting style and localized content that resonates with U.S. viewers. This careful blend of original elements with new twists has allowed "The Traitors" to captivate a global audience while honoring its Dutch roots.

What is The Traitors?

The Traitors is a reality television series that follows a group of contestants playing a game. Before the game begins, a handful of players are deemed traitors. The traitors know who the other traitors are, but the remaining contestants, called "faithful" do not. The traitors murder a faithful each night while the faithful try to weed out the traitors. If the faithful eliminate all traitors, they win and share the prize. If any of the traitors survive until the end of the game, they steal the prize money for themselves.

The show is based on a Dutch series titled De Verraders. While it got a UK adaptation a year after the Dutch success, in 2023, it came to the US, becoming one of the most popular reality shows on television. With actors from other reality shows like Survivor and The Real World, this show brought plenty of familiar faces back on the screen for an unforgettable show.
