Yellowjackets Season 2: Release date, plot and everything we know so far!

One of the top shows available to stream right now is Yellowjackets. The characters of Yellowjackets and the intriguing mystery of the story make it a must-watch. It’s a little weird, entertaining, dangerous, and addicting in the greatest manner possible. The minute Season 1 finished, we yearned for a new season. The start of Yellowjackets Season 2 will, however, take place after a little more time.

Last November, when Yellowjackets made its Showtime debut, it achieved the rarity of rarities in the streaming era: a slow-burn, word-of-mouth smash. The show quickly became one of the most talked-about surprises of the year thanks to its unique genre mash-up (part coming-of-age tale, part suburban thriller, and part survival horror) and stellar cast of teen idols giving career-best performances, including Christina Ricci, Melanie Lynskey, and Juliette Lewis.

Yellowjackets Season 2 Announcement

Showtime swiftly commissioned a second season after realising they had a hit on their hands. Fortunately, Lyle and Nickerson had a five-season character arc in mind when they initially presented the show, so you can anticipate that the second season will be just as well-developed and precisely organised as the first.

Yellowjackets Season 2 Production

Production for the Emmy-nominated “Yellowjackets” season 2 began on August 31.

Yellowjackets Season 2 Release date

The second season of Yellowjackets will follow a similar production timetable to the first, according to co-showrunner and co-creator Ashley Lyle, who previously told The Wrap that the show will launch in “the first quarter of 2023.”

She said that the objective is to wrap up filming by February 2023 and start the programme as soon as possible following. Episodes 2 through 10 of Yellowjackets Season 1 reportedly started production in May 2021 and finished in October 2021, according to IMDB. Additionally, it is noted that Yellowjackets was one of the several programmes whose production had to be stopped because of COVID-related shutdowns.

Yellowjackets Season 2 Cast

Variety revealed in August 2022 that Elijah Wood will play Walter in a season-long guest appearance on Yellowjackets. Walter is a devoted Citizen Detective who works in law enforcement. He reportedly “will challenge” Misty as well (Christina Ricci). Reading between the lines, I assume that Walter will be someone who is attempting to find out more about the ladies but who may also end up becoming Misty’s potential love interest.

Additionally, it appears that there will be a few new cast members, most notably Lauren Ambrose from Six Feet Under, who will portray an adult Van. The casting notice also successfully discloses that Van, who is portrayed by Liv Hewson as a teenager, has lived to the current day.

The majority of the main cast from the first season, including Samantha Hanratty, Sophie Nélisse, Sophie Thatcher, and Jasmin Savoy Brown as their younger counterparts, as well as Christina Ricci, Melanie Lynskey, Juliette Lewis, and Tawny Cypress as Misty, Shauna, Natalie, and Taissa, will all be back.

Yellowjackets Season 2 Plot

The show will probably begin where the first season ended. The questions we hope to have resolved by the start of the season include:  Will Shauna escape punishment for killing Adam? Travis actually killed himself, right? What’s up with Taissa’s bizarre out-of-body experiences and the unsettling shrine in the basement? Did they actually turn to cannibalism when they were in the woods? And will the genuine antler queen kindly take a seat? We can’t wait for season two to premiere.

In an E!  online interview, the showrunners talked about how Yellowjackets Season 2 will focus heavily on Lottie’s development into an adolescent. They also revealed that Lottie will pose a significant danger and presence in the following season. Lyle said: I would say a lot of, maybe barring Jeff [Shauna’s husband, played by Warren Kole] and his blackmail scheme, a lot of what we’ve seen from the women in Season 1 is sort of an interior threat, particularly with Shauna. And I think that moving forward in Season 2, we’ll see a little bit more exterior threat.”
