“Two months into winter the survivors cope with falling rations, low morale and their latest disastrous attempt to freeze a teammate out of the game.”
See what’s critics are saying below:
“Season 2, and especially its first and second episodes, masterfully prepare you for what appears to be the hungrier, gorier, and most shocking season of Yellowjackets yet.” – Daily Dead
“There’s a darkness lurking under the surface in episode 1. It’s a tense, frenetic energy that’s not bubbling up anytime soon. But when it does? It’s going to be spectacular.” – Total Film
“Yellowjackets unfurls the grotesque mysteries it taunted in Season 1, making Season 2 even better than its buzzy predecessor.” – Inverse
“In both timelines, the Yellowjackets continue to barrel forward in search of escape, and the journey remains compelling — though there are a few worrisome signs that the writers aren’t quite sure where their true destination lies.” – EW
“There’s a hesitancy that simply wasn’t there before, and one has to wonder if that’s necessary to build out future seasons, or if it’s simply the result of a successful series biding its time.” – IndieWire
“A lesser show would crumble under the weight of so many characters and myriad not-necessarily-entwined-plotlines. But even the most head-scratching stories are elevated by the hypnotic performances of the superlative cast.” – TheWrap
Created by Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson (Narcos), 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 what began out in the wilderness is far from over. In season two, two months have passed since Shauna gave Jackie the cold shoulder – to disastrous results. In the face of their deepening hunger and fear, the tension among our Yellowjackets has only grown worse. The harsh conditions of winter are intensifying by the day, and the psyches of our survivors are deteriorating just as fast. Threatened by the darkness of the wilderness – and the haunting memories of it in the present – our former state champs will be forced to make impossible decisions. As they confront the horrible truth of what survival entails, the real nightmare for each of them will be to figure out who they are – and what they are willing to sacrifice in order to stay alive.
Equal parts survival epic, psychological horror story and coming-of-age drama, YELLOWJACKETS stars Emmy nominee and Critics Choice Award winner Melanie Lynskey (Castle Rock), Oscar(R) and Emmy nominee Juliette Lewis (Camping), Emmy nominee Christina Ricci (Z: The Beginning of Everything) and Tawny Cypress (Unforgettable). Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under, Servant) 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. 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 serves as executive producer along with Ameni Rozsa, Sarah L. Thompson and Karyn Kusama who directed the pilot.
