It’s Yellowjackets’ world, and we are just living in it.

The Internet is obsessed with two TV shows this year so far, Euphoria and Yellowjackets. We’d always known about Euphoria, but Showtime’s Yellowjackets came out of the blue and became our latest obsession! After a somewhat successful premiere at the end of 2021, the spooky show became a cultural obsession over the course of its 10-episode first season, with every episode and frame analyzed on Twitter, Instagram, and Reddit forums. 

Created by Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson, Yellowjackets’ Season 1 finale left us with some major burning mysteries. Thankfully, Yellowjackets Season 2 is on the way! 

Yellowjackets Season 2 Release Date

Here’s everything you need to know about Yellowjackets Season 2:

Is there a Yellowjackets Season 2?

Big YES. The Yellowjackets was renewed for Season 2 in mid-December 2021 before even finishing airing Season 1. The even bigger news is that the show creators have said that they have a five-season plan for Yellowjackets!

When will Yellowjackets Season 2 release?

There is no production start date as of yet. The predictions say we could get Yellowjackets Season 2 around the same time as last year when we saw Season 1, which is late 2022.

Who’s the cast for Yellowjacket Season 2? Will Jackie return?

One of the many reasons why we are so obsessed with Yellowjackets is the show’s unpredictability. This also means it’s hard to predict which of the characters will return for season 2. Since Jackie dies in the finale, it’s highly unlikely to expect her to return to the show. But hey, this is the Yellowjackets we’re talking about! A few flashbacks featuring Jackie don’t hurt, right?

As of now, we can expect the return of series regulars, Melanie Lynskey as Shauna, Tawny Cypress as Taissa, Juliette Lewis as Natalie, Christina Ricci as Misty, and Warren Kole as Jeff.

The teenage cast features Sophie Nélisse as Shauna, Jasmin Savoy Brown as Taissa, Sophie Thatcher as Natalie, Samantha Hanratty as Samantha, Liv Hewson as Van, Courtney Eaton as Lottie, Steven Krueger as Ben, Kevin Alves as Travis, Keeya King as Akilah, and Alexa Barajas as Mari.

Yellowjackets Season 2 plot: What is it about?

Yellowjackets feeds on its secrets and mysteries, keeping the audience wondering throughout the show. This is especially true of the season one finale, which only gave us a few answers to the many burning questions that had arisen. The biggest question is regarding the identity of the Antler Queen.

A lot of weird things happened in the wilderness of Season 1. When will it all come to light? What is the meaning of the Yellowjackets’ symbol? Who on earth is Lottie Matthews and is she evil? The other two-face is Taissa! This final episode signals a turning point in how the two Taissas co-exist. There are a lot of plot threads left behind in Season 1 for the plot of Season 2. We’ll just have to wait patiently. Meanwhile, you can carry on with your pagan sacrifices for a faster return of the Yellowjackets.

Where can you watch Yellowjackets Season 2?

We’ll be the first ones to let you know when and where Yellowjackets Season 2 will air. For now, Yellowjackets Season 1 is available on Sky and NOW in the UK and Showtime in the US. For the Indian audience, the show is currently streaming on VOOT.
