Peacock had a hit with their debut season of The Traitors, a reality show that pits celebrities against each other to compete in challenges with the hopes of winning up to $250,000 cash. The catch is that several of the 21 celebrities are really "traitors" looking to steal the prize from the others.

The second season is hitting NBC's streaming app Peacock soon and combat sports fans will notice a familiar face in boxer Deontay Wilder.

This season is set in the Scottish Highlands and is hosted by Alan Cumming. The difference this season is the cast is 100 percent celebrities, whereas last season had a mix of "normal people."

Here's everything you need to know about season 2.

How to watch The Traitors Season 2

The show airs on the Peacock app on Jan. 12. The first three episodes will premiere at the same time with the rest of the season dropping weekly on Thursdays at 6pm PT/9pm ET. Each episode is an hour long and there will be 11 episodes total.

Wilder is coming off a devastating loss to Joseph Parker on Dec. 23 but is hoping to keep his dreams alive for a fight with Anthony Joshua or Francis Ngannou.

We hope his The Traitors appearance fares better than his recent boxing fight.
