Everyone's talking about The Traitors US, which comes following quickly on the heels of the UK version of The Traitors. The US edition was released on streaming services on January 12 but it's also been shown weekly on certain networks.

If you want to watch The Traitors US, this article will help you do so in the US, UK or anywhere else in the world. If you're traveling from your home country, you can use a VPN like ExpressVPN to stream from your home region.

The premise of The Traitors US is that 20 strangers meet in a castle in Scotland, and work together to earn money for a prize pot — then they vote for a contestant to leave the competition. A select number of traitors try to kick out the main contestants, without getting rumbled themselves, with the prize pot going to the survivors if they disqualify all the traitors or the surviving traitors if they reach the end.

The Traitors US, hosted by Alan Cummings, has 10 episodes in its first season, each of which lasts an hour long. If you're interested in watching The Traitors US, you'll be glad to know that it's pretty easy to watch wherever you are in the world. How? Well, read on.
