Some great news today for fans of the new Showtime series ‘Yellowjackets’ as the premium network has officially renewed the series for a second season.
The renewal for second season of ‘Yellowjackets’ arrives after just five episodes of the debut season have aired and pulled in impressive numbers for Showtime along with critical praise; the series currently holds a 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes as of this writing (although it is not yet certified fresh).
You can read some more details about the series itself from Showtime below!
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. Created and executive produced by Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson (Narcos), the one-hour drama series stars Melanie Lynskey (Castle Rock), Oscar®, Emmy® and Golden Globe® nominee Juliette Lewis (Camping), Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Christina Ricci (Z: The Beginning of Everything) and Tawny Cypress (Unforgettable). Jonathan Lisco (Animal Kingdom, Halt and Catch Fire) joins Lyle and Nickerson to serve as executive producer and show running partner.
