Yellowjackets Season 2
Was Yellowjackets cancelled or renewed for season 2? When does it start on Showtime? Who will be returning for the new season? In this post, we have summarized everything we know so far about the next season.
What Is Yellowjackets About?
Part survival epic, part psychological horror and part coming-of-age drama, this is the story of a team of wildly talented high school girls' soccer players who survive a plane crash deep in the remote northern wilderness.
The series chronicles their descent from a complicated but thriving team to savage clans, while also tracking the lives they’ve attempted to piece back together nearly 25 years later, proving that the past is never really past and what began out in the wilderness is far from over. Season two also stars Sophie Nélisse (The Book Thief), Jasmin Savoy Brown (The Leftovers), Sophie Thatcher (Prospect), Samantha Hanratty (SHAMELESS), Courtney Eaton (Mad Max: Fury Road), Liv Hewson (Santa Clarita Diet), Steven Krueger (The Originals), Warren Kole (Shades of Blue) and Kevin Alves. YELLOWJACKETS is executive produced by Lyle, Nickerson and fellow showrunner Jonathan Lisco. Drew Comins of Creative Engine also serves as executive producer. Karyn Kusama directed the pilot.
SHOWTIME has announced they have signed the Emmy and WGA nominated executive producers and writers, Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson, to an overall deal, under which they will continue to serve as showrunners of the critically-acclaimed drama series YELLOWJACKETS, alongside fellow showrunner Jonathan Lisco, while also developing new projects exclusively for the network. Created by Lyle and Nickerson, YELLOWJACKETS is nominated for seven Emmy Awards with three nominations for Lyle and Nickerson including Outstanding Drama Series and two writing Emmys. The series, which has a rare 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes, was also nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress for Melanie Lynskey and Outstanding Supporting Actress for Christina Ricci and earned additional noms for Directing and Casting. Lyle and Nickerson also received WGA and HCA nominations for their work on YELLOWJACKETS, which averaged over 5 million weekly viewers across platforms in season one and was the second-most streamed series in SHOWTIME history. The announcement was made today by Gary Levine and Jana Winograde, Presidents of Entertainment, Showtime Networks Inc.
Season one of YELLOWJACKETS received a Critics’ Choice nomination for ‘Best Drama Series. Equal parts survival epic, psychological horror story, and coming-of-age drama, YELLOWJACKETS is the saga of a team of wildly talented high school girls’ soccer players who become the (un)lucky survivors of a plane crash deep in the remote northern wilderness. The series chronicles their descent from a complicated but thriving team to savage clans while also tracking the lives they’ve attempted to piece back together nearly 25 years later, proving that the past is never really past and that what began out in the wilderness is far from over.
Created and executive produced by Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson (Narcos), the 10-episode, one-hour drama series starring Melanie Lynskey (Castle Rock), Oscar(R) and Emmy(R) nominee Juliette Lewis (Camping), Emmy nominee Christina Ricci (Z: The Beginning of Everything) and Tawny Cypress (Unforgettable) is currently in production in Vancouver.
