Yellowjackets fan raise your hands because the series is returning to offer more thrill! Yes, Showtime has revealed an official (and ominous) teaser trailer for “Yellowjackets” Season 2, stating that the series is slated to return in March 2023. Read to know about the release date, plot and cast of the much-awaited Season.
You Won’t Be Hungry Much Longer!
Yellowjackets fans won’t be hungry much longer! The thriller series is slated to return with Season 2 in March. Showtime has finally revealed an official (and ominous) teaser trailer for Yellowjackets Season 2, which confirms that the thriller series will return on Friday, March 24, 2023. “You won’t be hungry much longer,” the video description reads. “Stream new episodes of Yellowjackets starting March 24 2023 on SHOWTIME.”
Yellowjackets quickly became one of the buzziest shows of the year following its November 2021 premiere. The Showtime series revolves around characters like Misty (Christina Ricci), Natalie (Juliette Lewis), Shauna (Melanie Lynskey) and Taissa (Tawny Cypress).
In Season One, this team was stranded in the wilderness as teens (Sammi Hanratty, Sophie Thatcher, Sophie Nélisse and Jasmin Savoy Brown, respectively) after surviving a plane crash. Their traumatic experience leads the women down a dangerous path, and guess what, they aren’t scared to get their hands dirty.
“Showtime does like their gore. But luckily, this is just a natural agreement on all of our parts,” showrunner Ashley Lyle told Slate in January 2022 of the show’s dramatic visuals and dark storylines. “We knew going in that we wanted to have a visceral quality to the show. Our intention is never to be shocking or provocative for the sake of it but to pick our moments where the frailty of the human body is on full display, and we’re not turning away from it.”
What’s The Plot For Season 2?
if you’re a fan of this series, you may be aware that ‘Yellowjackets’ was officially picked for Season 2 before the Jan. 2022 finale aired. This left fans wondering about what’s next in store for the survivors. Whether they be seeing more characters or not? was one of the important questions.
While no details have been released regarding Season 2, one thing seems clear. Though Jackie (Ella Purnell) froze to death at the end of season 1, some viewers aren’t ruling out a potential return. What we can tell is that Season 2 will have a new queen bee hierarchy afoot with some surprises.
For instance, which of the 1996 Yellowjackets teen soccer champs survive to present-day? What happened to Shauna’s baby? Is Jeff in on the cannibal secret? And what the hell is going on with Lottie’s present-day cult? and a lot more. Season 2 will surely unravel many of those fan theories out there.
