NEW SERIES: Showtime’s YELLOWJACKETS With Juliette Lewis, Christina Ricci & More Starts Filming In Vancouver


Big Little Lies meets Lord of the Flies. 

Showtime’s Yellowjackets series — about a girls’ high school soccer team who become the (un)lucky survivors of a plane crash deep in the wilderness — starts filming in Vancouver.

Production has been spotted setting up on the grounds of Panther Paintball in Surrey — perhaps for the plane crash.

Filming dates: May 3rd to September 28th.

Showrunners: Ashley Lyle, Bart Nickerson and Jonathan Lisco.

Cast: Juliette Lewis, Christina Ricci, Melanie Lynskey, Tawny Cypress, Sophie Thatcher, Sammi Hanratty, Sophie Nélisse, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Ella Purnell, Steven Krueger, Amy Okuda.

Yellowjackets follows a girls’ high school soccer team. In 1975, the Dearborn High Yellowjackets became the first team in state history to qualify for the Girls’ U.S. Soccer Championship Series in Manchester, NH. They never got the chance to compete. Equal parts survival epic, horror story and pitch black coming of age, Yellowjackets tells the story of the (un)lucky survivors of a plane crash deep in the wilderness, chronicling their descent from a friendly, cooperative team to warring, cannibalistic clans. At the same time, it follows the lives they’ve attempted to piece back together nearly twenty-five years later, proving that the past is never really past and what began out in the wilderness is far from over.

Juliette Lewis arrived in Vancouver in early April.

So…after the worst year and just beginning to find my feet again – I am FINALLY headed back to work! A new series called “Yellowjackets’ for Showtime. We shot the pilot in 2019…and got the golden “you’re going to series” ticket! This character is gonna be a fun one! Super Serious, Sultry, perpetual question mark, a con….I am so looking forward to putting my mind into what it knows how to do. Characters, scenes, human behaviour, cultivation, layers, emotional nuance ugh. The dance! And because of how good the writing is…it’s gonna be so fckn fun. — Juliette Lewis.

Lewis expects to spend five months in Vancouver.

Christina Ricci arrived in Vancouver on April 11th.
