Showtime has released the first teaser trailer for the highly-anticipated second season of Yellowjackets, which finally unveiled its return date. New episodes of the Emmy-nominated coming-of-age horror drama will be debuting next year, starting on March 24, 2023.
In the 15-second Yellowjackets Season 2 teaser trailer, we get to see a glimpse of a cryptic symbol which might be connected to the surviving girls’ horrifying time in the wild. In a recent interview with Variety, lead star Sophie Nélisse warned fans that the next installment will be more graphic and gruesome, as the girls face a harsh winter.
Check out the Yellowjackets Season 2 teaser trailer below:
Yellowjackets currently stars Christina Ricci, Juliette Lewis, Melanie Lynskey, Tawny Cypress, Samantha Hanratty, Sophie Thatcher, Sophie Nélisse, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Steven Krueger, and Warren Kole. Season 2 will introduce Emmy nominated actress Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under, Servant) as adult Van Palmer, Simone Kessell (Obi-Wan Kenobi) as adult Lottie, and Elijah Wood as citizen detective Walter.
“Equal parts survival epic, psychological horror story, and coming-of-age drama, it tells 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,” reads the series synopsis. “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.”
Yellowjackets is created and executive produced by Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson. Executive producers are Drew Comins, Karyn Kusama, and Jonathan Lisco, who is also serving as the showrunner. It is produced by Entertainment One.
