The Traitors is a huge success all over the world and believe me: the road to this point has been an incredible journey. Achieving this success and winning this award is a great compliment for all the people who worked so hard and passionately on the show. We could only dream of such success. Now it is reality. 

A special thank you to All3Media International for getting our format out in so many territories, the people of Studio Lambert for their great execution of the US and the UK versions, and to RTL Netherlands for their trust, entrepreneurship, and support to start and build this success!”

The Traitors first aired in 2021 under the original name ‘De Verraders’. Immediately after the launch there was international interest for the format.

“It has been an amazing journey to dive into the world of The Traitors with the many, brilliant producers around the world creating their own version of the format. Together with All3Media International we’ve worked hard on making The Traitors a global success. In 2023 The Traitors was the fastest selling format worldwide for the 2nd year in a row. Currently the format is sold in more than 25 territories, with more to be added later this year” says Kevin Soares, EVP international formats at IDTV.
