In a chilling teaser trailer, Showtime has announced the premiere date for season 2 of Yellowjackets.
The sophomore season will be available to stream on March 24 and debut on-air Sunday, March 26 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
The synopsis is as follows:
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 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.
Season 2 will see the return of the show’s stars Melanie Lynskey (Castle Rock), Juliette Lewis (Camping), Christina Ricci (Z: The Beginning of Everything), and Tawny Cypress (Unforgettable).
The new season also features new and returning stars such as Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under, Servant) and Simone Kessell (Obi-Wan Kenobi), in addition to Elijah Wood (The Lord of the Rings trilogy), 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.
Created by Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson, Yellowjackets is executive produced by Lyle, Nickerson, showrunner Jonathan Lisco, and Drew Comins.
