“Yellow jackets,” a Showtime original series, has gotten a lot of excitement and high acclaim from people with serious credentials, including horror legend Stephen King, who informed his Twitter followers on January 6 that he liked the show because of its “sharp characterization and mordant sense of humor.
” The program is about a high school soccer team from New Jersey whose plane crashed in a mystery Canadian wilderness in 1996 while travelling to a competition in Seattle, Washington.
The survivors of the catastrophe, who were alone in the forest for 19 months without touch with the outside world, are surrounded by dark whispers and derogatory insinuation. Cannibalism is committed, and moments of mysticism and supernatural phenomena are alluded at.
In the present, survivors Shauna (Melanie Lynskey), Taissa (Tawny Cypress), Natalie (Juliette Lewis), and Misty (Christina Ricci) struggle with their flawed adult lives as their 25th high school reunion approaches and memories of the past return.
When a blackmailer threatens the women, they are pulled back together. The show is a coming-of-age story with elements of survival drama, mystery, and horror. It’s a potent mix, but it works well.
According to a December 16 Deadline interview with Showtime President of Entertainment Gary Levine, the series has racked up over 4 million views across several streaming platforms and has a pristine 100% Rotten Tomatoes critics rating.
In reaction to the show’s success, “Yellow jackets” has been renewed for a second season, according to Deadline. So, what can fans look forward to in Season 2 of “Yellow jackets?” So far, we’ve learned the following.
When Does Season 2 of Yellowjackets Air?
The premiere date for Season 2 of “Yellowjackets” is currently unknown. According to Levine’s interview with Deadline, the show’s writers room will meet again in January 2022, and no plans for the season’s main narrative components have been released, let alone a production start date.
He remarked, “We haven’t heard the pitch for Season 2.” “I’m sure Ashley [Lyle, series creator, co-executive producer, and co-showrunner], Bart [Nickerson, co-executive producer, and co-showrunner], and Jonathan [Lisco, co-executive producer and co-showrunner] have some loose ideas, but they hadn’t fleshed them out.
They certainly hadn’t communicated them to us.” To get a close estimate, we may look at the filming schedule from the first season. The series took six months to shoot and ended in mid-October 2021, according to a WBBM-TV interview with Ella Purnell, who plays Jackie on the show.
According to IMDb, the first season premiered on November 14 of the same year, a very short time frame. As a result, assuming pre-production goes smoothly and the series shoots in the summer or early autumn of 2022, fans may see Season 2 of “Yellowjackets” by late fall 2022 — although early 2023 appears to be a lot more plausible at this time.
In the Second Season of Yellowjackets, Who Will Play the Main Characters?
Taissa, Natalie, Shauna, and Misty — as well as the actors who play them as adults — are almost certainly going to survive to see another day. Naturally, the young actresses who play the women’s adolescent equivalents will return to reprise their roles in the months leading up to their rescue.
That means we’ll see more of Sophie Nélisse, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Sammi Hanratty, and Sophie Thatcher as young Shauna, Taissa, Misty, and Natalie. Warren Kole and Jack Depew will very certainly reprise their roles as Jeff Sadecki, Shauna’s future spouse, as adults and teenagers, respectively.
Jackie, played by Ella Purnell, is still alive and well as we approach the Season 1 conclusion. Is she out of the woods, and if so, who is she now as an adult? Sarah Desjardins, who plays Shauna’s adolescent daughter Callie.
Aiden Stoxx, who plays Taissa’s son Sammy, are all expected to return. Simone, Taissa’s wife, will most likely be played by Rukiya Bernard.
