Showtime’s mystery-box drama Yellowjackets ended with a cliffhanger that left viewers with even more questions than before. We’re not sure whether they’ll accomplish their initial target for Yellowjackets season 2, even if the majority of the primary cast members — both the adults and their adolescent selves from 1996 — are returning.
Yellowjackets, which debuted on Showtime in the middle of November, has steadily grown into a major success. Two distinct eras are shown in the show: 1996 and now. On their way to a competition in 1996, a high school girls’ soccer team’s private jet crashes into the Canadian wilderness. It took them 19 months to get out of the place. Adult survivors are still trying to piece together what occurred in the woods and what they had to do to remain alive in the here and now.
Yellowjackets has become one of the most talked-about concerts in the last month or two. The programme has received rave reviews from critics (it has a perfect rating on Rotten Tomatoes), fans are discussing hypotheses at breakneck speed on Reddit and Twitter, and academics are hailing it as a shining illustration of why weekly releases are preferable to bingeing.
Season 2 of Yellowjackets can’t arrive fast enough. To date, this is all we’ve learned on the subject.
Release date rumours for Yellowjackets season 2
Season 2 of Yellowjackets has yet to be announced, but we may expect it soon. The show’s creators, Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson, confirmed to Variety that production would begin in “late summer” of 2022.
During the middle of the first season, Showtime decided to extend the show’s run. Instagram was used to announce the announcement by the premium network. While you’re waiting for the second season of Yellowjackets, here are seven series to watch while you wait.
Yellowjackets has been an undiluted phenomenon for Showtime,” says Showtime entertainment executive Gary Levine in a statement. In addition to numerous “Best of 2021” lists, a 100 percent Rotten Tomatoes rating, and soaring viewership, our series has received a tremendous amount of critical acclaim.
For those who want novelty and daring, our brilliant showrunners Ashley (Lyle), Bart (Nickerson), and Jonathan (Lisco), together with their flawless ensemble, have delivered in spades with their new series. Season two promises to be even more exciting, and I for one am eagerly anticipating what is ahead.
For a premium cable series, it’s possible that Yellowjackets season 2 may come sooner than planned – perhaps later this year!
According to Levine, “We are aiming towards a debut at the end of 2022.” A yearly cycle would be ideal for us.” In my opinion, our audience deserves it, and I also believe that when you have a programme that has this sort of a momentum, you don’t want to let it disintegrate.
It’s still feasible, but shooting in the late summer of 2022 makes it more more difficult.
Actors in the second season of Yellowjackets
In season 2, most of the Yellowjackets cast will return. Actors in the current chronology are included in this.
- Melanie Lynskey as adult Shauna
- Tawny Cypress as adult Taissa
- Juliette Lewis as adult Natalie
- Christina Ricci as adult Misty
- Warren Kole as adult Jeff
- Sarah Desjardins as Callie, Jeff and Shauna’s daughter
- Rukiya Bernard as Simone, Taissa’s wife
- Aiden Stoxx as Sammy, Taissa’s son
- Rekha Sharma as Jessica Roberts, a fixer posing as a journalist
- Alex Wyndham as Kevyn, Natalie’s former best friend and a police officer
- Tonya Cornelisse as adult Allie
- Jeff Holman as adult Randy
Plus, the cast members in the 1996 timeline:
- Sophie Nélisse as teen Shauna
- Jasmin Savoy Brown as teen Taissa
- Sophie Thatcher as teen Natalie
- Sammi Hanratty as teen Misty
- Steven Krueger as Ben Scott, the team’s assistant coach
- Kevin Alves as Travis
- Courtney Eaton as Lottie
- Liv Hewson as Van
- Keeya King as Akilah
- Alexa Barajas as Mari
- Luciano Leroux as Javi
This season’s squad leader may be Ella Purnell, despite Jackie’s death. In the current day, she has emerged in Shauna’s visions and hallucinations as an adult.
Peter Gadiot’s Adam, the artist with whom Shauna had an affair, is far less likely to return in season 2. His body was dismembered after he was slain by her. On the other hand, she could make him see things.
Who will play adult Lottie in Yellowjackets season 2? That is, of course, the burning question for the ensemble. According to the conclusion, Lottie is still alive today and took money out of Travis’ bank account after he passed away.
Fairuza Balk has been mentioned by Reddit users, along with Tia Carrere and Olivia Munn. Jordana Brewster and Shannyn Sossamon have also been mentioned. Vulture opted for the latter.
According to admirers, Lauren Ambrose, Mireille Enos and Julia Stiles might portray the adult Van if she makes it.
Theories about season 2 of Yellowjackets
Even better than watching the programme is discussing Yellowjacket hypotheses! Using Reddit as a rabbit hole is an excellent way to get into the character.
Going into season 2, we’ve seen some of the most ridiculous hypotheses.
A young woman dies in a pit in the opening scene of the pilot, and the character who died in the pit is named Allie. The Antler Queen leads a gang of people who seem to be chopping her up into a supper. It’s been speculated that the scenario may not take place in 1996, but rather in the current day, and that the girl may be Allie’s kid, Shauna’s, or Jeff’s child.
It looks that Lottie’s Antler Queen cult is active: (or at least she was for a time in the past). She has at least six members in her cult, as shown by the pit girl incident. However, it seems that the cult has relocated beyond the woods. At this point in time, Natalie’s sponsor learns that Lottie took money out of Travis’ bank account after he had passed away. It’s possible that she’s using the money to fund her religious cult. They seem to have taken Natalie as she was preparing to take her own life in her hotel room, according to eyewitness accounts.
In the cult: Taissa, an adult The series finale also reveals that Taissa’s home has a sacrifice altar. Slashed canine head and what looks to be human heart (possibly Adam’s?) are discovered by Simone, her husband’s wife. This revelation is intertwined with the news that Taisa has won the state senate contest that Simone has discovered. How long has Tai been a part of the cult? Did she make the sacrifice in the hope that it would aid her victory?
Numerous hypotheses have been advanced in relation to the show’s enigmatic emblem. In the minds of some fans, it portrays a lady who is hanging upside down from the hook, like the pit girl. Some say it has anything to do with alchemy. One Redditor thinks it’s a trigonometry issue that leads to an exit.
A terrible creature known as the “Man Without Eyes” has come to Taissa several times throughout the years as a kid, adolescent, and adult. It’s possible he’s simply a phantom death that’s haunting her. Some fans believe he’s the spectre of the hunter whose cabin the youngsters are now occupying. Others believe Lottie and the cult members are turning to cannibalism under the influence of a demon or monster.
