Yellowjackets, the Showtime series about a girls’ high school soccer team whose plane crashes in the wilderness, is a cross between Lord of the Flies and Lost when it comes to supernatural stories of survival. Are members of the team going mad in the woods? And will we actually see some cannibalism in season two? That’s certainly where it seemed like the show was headed when we last saw them. Oh, and what’s with the deer antler ritual?
We won’t have to wait much longer for the answers to all of these questions,Yellowjackets returns to Showtime on Sunday, March 26, 2023. With new episodes airing weekly, season two will hopefully help us understand all the things that have kept us hanging us since 2021.

What is Yellowjackets about?
There’s no doubt that Yellowjackets was one of the biggest hits of 2021, the show offers a hit of ‘90s nostalgia with its throwback pop culture references and a pitch-perfect soundtrack (which is thankfully available as a Spotify playlist), as well as the involvement of several cast members whose careers blew up during that decade, like Christina Ricci and Juliette Lewis.
With the use of flashbacks, the show depicts a mysterious plane crash that stranded a team of high school soccer players in the wilderness. This group, consisting of Shauna (played by Melanie Lynskey as the adult and Sophie Nelisse and her teenaged counterpart), Taissa (Tawny Cypress and Jasmin Savoy Brown), Misty (Christina Ricci and Sammi Hanratty), and Natalie (Juliette Lewis and Sophie Thatcher) spent the last 25 years apart, but when they’re brought back together in the present day, bad things start happening all around them, including the recent, mysterious death of one of their fellow survivors, Travis (Kevin Alves).
In season two we’ll meet the adult versions of Van and Lottie, who appeared in flashbacks as teens, but their adult selves will be played by Lauren Ambrose and Simone Kessel, respectively, and Lord of the Rings actor Elijah Wood will also be joining the cast. And brace yourselves, because even though the second season hasn’t premiered yet, season three has already been greenlit, which means the saga of our hungry, haunted teen athletes is far from over.
