The highly anticipated second season of the TV show “Yellowjackets” is coming soon, and the release date has now been announced. Fans of the show have been eagerly anticipating this news ever since Season 1 ended. The first season was a smash hit, with viewers praising its unique plot and characters. It deserves its place as one of the most popular TV shows today.
Yellowjackets Season 2 Release Date
The highly anticipated second season of the hit drama Yellowjackets now has a release date. According to premieredates.com, Yellowjackets Season 2 will premiere on March 24, 2023. Using a cryptic video, the release date was revealed in December 2022.
Before airing on March 26, 2023, Showtime subscribers will have a two-day exclusive window for streaming and on-demand viewing. Gary Levine, president of Showtime’s entertainment division, stated when the series was renewed for a second season approximately one year ago, “Yellowjackets has been an unadulterated phenomenon for the network.”

The American television series Yellowjackets was created by Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson. It stars Sophie Nélisse, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Sophie Thatcher, Sammi Hanratty, Liv Hewson, and Courtney Eaton as a group of teenagers involved in a plane crash in 1996, with Melanie Lynskey, Tawny Cypress, Juliette Lewis, Christina Ricci, Lauren Ambrose, and Simone Kessell portraying their adult counterparts. Ella Purnell, Steven Krueger, Warren Kole, and Kevin Alves also star.
The debut of the series on Showtime occurred on November 14, 2021. Critics praised it for its plot and cast performances. It has been nominated for seven Primetime Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Drama Series, and nominations for Lynskey and Ricci in the acting categories. The series was renewed for a second season in December 2021, which will premiere on March 26, 2023. The series was renewed for a third season in December 2022.
Plot of Yellowjackets Season 2
When Yellowjackets returns for a second season, there will be so many mysteries to solve. In the first episode, who was the girl the rest of the soccer team ate? Who constructed that eerie cabin in the middle of nowhere? What the hell is up with Tai?
However, the central conflict will most likely involve Lottie’s rise as a cult leader in the past and her current resurgence. She kidnaps Nat at the end of the first season, and it will most likely be up to Shauna, Tai, and Misty (citizen detective that she is) to save their friend.
The only problem is that Shauna will have to deal with the fallout from murdering Adam, especially since her daughter Callie is unaware; Tai is possessed by a supernatural force that causes her to behead dogs, and Misty just poisoned Jessica! Things are getting much messier for New Jersey’s high school soccer champions.
Yellowjackets Season 2 cast
This season, additional survivors of plane crashes will continue to surface. Lauren Ambrose (Servant) will join the cast as adult Van, and Simone Kessell (Obi-Wan Kenobi) will play adult Lottie. Elijah Wood has been cast in the series as a guest star. In the present-day plot, the former Lord of the Rings actor will portray Walter, a nosy citizen detective who is apparently aware of Misty’s evil deeds. According to Showtime, Walter will “challenge Misty in ways she won’t see coming.”
Crystal, a theater-lover who forms a friendship with Misty, will be played by Nuha Jes Izman, who has been cast as a recurring guest star (we can already smell trouble there). Evidently, her role in the plot will be significant. Since Ella Purnell’s Jackie died definitively at the end of Season 1, it is unknown whether she will appear in Season 2.
