Shortly after releasing the teaser trailer for the second season of Yellowjackets, Showtime has announced that the hit series has been renewed for a third season.
In a brief tweet sent out on Thursday, Showtime confirmed the news with a cryptic image of the number three being drawn into a foggy window. Of course, nothing is known about the third season as of now, as Season 2 hasn’t premiered yet. 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.
You can check out the Yellowjackets Season 3 confirmation tweet 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.
