Traitors Season 2 renewed or not?
Since the last episode of Traitors season, 1 was released on 24th March 2019, the fans of this miniseries have been curious to know about Traitors Season 2.
Unfortunately, the broadcasting channel, as well as Netflix, has not renewed Traitors season 2 yet. This means, as of now, the show remains canceled until any confirmation arrives.
It was witnessed that this show was costing them a large amount of money and the ratings were not doing it justice. They couldn’t take a risk and probably that is why decided to take a halt in this series.
