Yellowjackets Season 2: We’re still waiting impatiently for more of one of the most exciting dramas to emerge from 2021. We’re talking about Yellowjackets on Showtime, the program that hooked us last winter. As more information about the plot steadily leaks into the news, people are already anticipating Season 2.
The show, which follows a ladies’ soccer team as they scavenge in full survival mode after a plane crash deep in the Canadian wilderness in the mid-1990s, has received some new cast announcements for the sophomore season from Showtime, most significantly the debut date.
Showtime decided to spoil the viewers even more, given their high excitement for Season 2. Ahead of Season 2’s spring release, the network ordered a third season of Yellowjackets. On December 15, Variety received confirmation from Chris McCarthy, the president and CEO of Showtime and Paramount Media Networks.
We wanted to capitalize on the momentum by hastening the release of Season 3 right away, McCarthy said, given the overwhelming popularity of Yellowjackets in Season 1 and the pent-up excitement for Season 2.
This brings us to the following information: Yellowjackets Season 2 will soon have an official release date. The launch date was revealed in a video that the show’s Twitter account shared. It is on March 24, 2023. Only some icy images, some knife carving for self-harm, and sketches of the enigmatic hieroglyphic symbol are shown in the perplexing video.
The showrunner and co-creator Ashley Lyle tweeted this fall that they are still “deep in production” even though Season 2 filming began in August 2022. She predicted that filming would be finished in February earlier this year.
Yellowjackets Season 2: When Will It Return?
The second season of Yellowjackets will debut on Showtime on March 24, 2023.
Yellowjackets Season 2 cast
There will be more survivors of airline crashes this season. Along with Obi-Wan Kenobi actor Simone Kessell playing an adult Lottie, Lauren Ambrose (Servant) will join the cast as an adult Van.
Elijah Wood has been tapped to appear as a series guest star. In the present-day plot, the former Lord of the Rings actor will play Walter, a nosy citizen detective aware of Misty’s evil deeds. According to Showtime, Walter will “push Misty in ways she won’t see coming.”
A recurrent guest star, Nuha Jes Izman, has also been added. She will play Crystal, a theater enthusiast who befriends Misty (we can already smell trouble there). Her role in the story will be necessary.
Since Jackie, played by Ella Purnell, unquestionably passed away after Season 1, it is unknown if she will make any appearances in Season 2.
Yellowjackets main cast:
- Melanie Lynskey – Adult Shauna
- Sophie Nelisse – Teen Shauna
- Christina Ricci – Adult Misty
- Samantha Hanratty – Teen Misty
- Juliette Lewis – Adult Natalie
- Sophie Thatcher – Teen Natalie
- Tawny Cypress – Adult Taissa

Yellowjackets Season 1 Recap
The shocking and unsettling finale of the first season left us with more questions than answers in classic cliffhanger style. After being shunned by her teammates, Jackie (Ella Purnell) died shockingly alone in the snow, and Travis’s brother Javi went missing following the girls’ hallucinatory night in the woods.
In the present, we learn that Natalie (Juliette Lewis) was taken from her motel room and put into a vehicle and that Lottie is still very much alive and may even be the founder of a cult. Season 2 should answer some of the who, what, when, and where mysteries, such as what became of Shauna’s (Sophie Nelisse) infant.
The Antler Queen: Who is she? Will episode 1’s opening scene reveal the identity of the girl fleeing for her life? We’re also interested to see if the supernatural themes in the series will stick around. We’re about to cover our eyes since it appears that cannibalism is about to occur.
