From The Mole to Outlast: 10 TV Series to Watch If You Loved The Traitors

It’s safe to say season two of The Traitors has left a Claudia Winkleman-shaped hole in all of our lives. After the dramatic finale, which brought to a close a stellar season of the UK smash-hit reality series, here’s a list of 10 TV series to stream now that are similar to The Traitors.

In the BBC series, 22 contestants are whisked away to a remote castle in the Scottish Highlands where they’re split into two groups - the Faithfuls and the Traitors. As the murder mystery game begins, the faithfuls have to try and discover who the traitors are, before they’re killed off, to make sure the traitors don’t finish with the prize money. The competitors have to work together to complete challenges, all while raising their suspicions about who they can really trust.

Since its debut, The Traitors has been streamed over 34 million times on BBC iPlayer, becoming one of the most streamed programmes on the platform. Season one also won the BAFTA for Best Reality and Constructed Factual series, while presenter Claudia Winkleman was awarded Best Entertainment Performance.

After the success of the UK series, there have been several spin offs too including The Traitors Australia, The Traitors US and The Traitors Canada. Now that the second season has come to a dramatic end - no spoilers here though! - the question on every fan’s mind is what shall I watch next?

Thankfully on Netflix, there’s several excellent reality series stuffed with twists and turns at every corner, but the one most similar to The Traitors is The Mole. In this game, a mole is chosen out of the 12 players who sets out to sabotage the other competitors from winning the hefty prize money.

Equally, no one can forget Netflix’s smash-hit South Korean drama, Squid Game, which debuted back in 2020 and gripped millions of subscribers across the world. Now this cult show, which became the most streamed non-English language title on the platform, has released its own reality series titled Squid Game: The Challenge.

In one of the most epic endeavors in TV history, 454 contestants from around the world compete for the largest cash prize ever on a reality programme of $4.56 million. It’s another nail biting challenge-led game that will keep you at the edge of your seat.

Netflix is also home to several binge-worthy reality series similar to The Traitors such as The Circle, Outlast and Siren: Survive the Island.

Over on Amazon Prime is the adrenaline-fuelled series 007: Road to a Million, created by the minds behind the James Bond franchise. Nine duos jet set around the world to compete in daring challenges to win that life-changing prize of £1 million.

With so many nail biting reality series to choose from, here are the top ten TV series to stream now like The Traitors.
