Showtime’s YELLOWJACKETS Renewed For Season 2 of Filming in Vancouver

Lord of the Flies meets Big Little Lies.

Showtime’s breakout Yellowjackets series is renewed for season 2 of filming in greater Vancouver.

Yellowjackets is about a group of survivors from a girls’ high-school soccer team who 25 years ago were stranded deep in the wilderness after a plane crash and forced to go feral to survive.

Yellowjackets has been an unadulterated sensation for Showtime. We are overwhelmed by both the acclaim and the audience response to our series, including several ‘Best of 2021’ lists, a 100 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes and snowballing viewership. Clearly there is a hunger for originality and audacity, and our incredible showrunners Ashley, Bart and Jonathan, along with their pitch-perfect cast, have delivered that and so much more. I can’t wait to see the surprises they have in store for us in season two. — Showtime entertainment president Gary Levine.
