They Brought the Darkness Back: Teaser Arrives for Season 2 of ‘Yellowjackets’

Showtime has released the first official teaser for the second season of the Emmy-nominated series “Yellowjackets.” As the sun rose this Friday the 13th, the official “Yellowjackets” social channels went live with a flickering candle. As fans engaged, the candle melted in real time for an hour until dawn broke and finally revealed the first official teaser for season two.

Season two will return starting Friday, March 24 on streaming and on-demand for all Showtime subscribers, before making its on-air debut on Sunday, March 26, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Created by Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson (“Narcos”), “Yellowjackets” stars Emmy nominee and Critics Choice Award winner Melanie Lynskey (“Castle Rock”), Oscar® and Emmy nominee Juliette Lewis (“Camping”), Emmy nominee Christina Ricci (“Z: The Beginning of Everything”), and Tawny Cypress (“Unforgettable”). Lauren Ambrose (“Six Feet Under”) and Simone Kessell (“Obi-Wan Kenobi”) have also joined the second season as series regulars, along with Elijah Wood (“The Lord of the Rings” trilogy) in a season-long guest arc. 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 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.

Produced for Showtime by studio Entertainment One (eOne), the series is currently in production in Vancouver. The series is executive produced by Lyle, Nickerson, and fellow showrunner Jonathan Lisco. Drew Comins of Creative Engine also serves as executive producer.
