What is the release date of Yellowjackets Season 3?

The series was renewed for its third season even before the second season was released. The co-creator of the series Ashley Lyle said in an interview that the show, as many others, has been impacted by the ongoing writers’ strike. Due to this current situation, we would have to wait a little longer for the third season. We can expect the third season to release later in 2024 or in early 2025 but not sooner than that.
