What can we expect in season 2?

Yellowjackets ended season one with winter coming and the ostracized Jackie (Ella Purnell) freezing to death outside. Plus in a foreshadowing of the pilot’s Antler Queen and her cult’s ritualistic cannibal scene, we watched young Lottie (Courtney Eaton) place a bear’s heart at a forest altar, flanked by young Misty and Van (Liv Hewson)

Lottie the Antler Queen.

Showrunners have dubbed season 2 as The Winter of Their Discontent and plan to get creative with their winter storyline and make it as winter-heavy as they can which shouldn’t be hard in a BC Fall.

Showrunners also promise we will find out who is blackmailing the Yellowjackets in present day.
