We tell you everything we know about season 2 of the “Yellowjackets” series (available in France on Canal+). Warning! This article contains spoilers for season 1 and is therefore only for those who have already watched the first 10 episodes!
Yellowjackets: the buzzing series!
Arriving at the end of 2021 in the United States on Showtime, the series Yellowjackets is available in France via Canal+ since March 3. Created by Bart Nickerson and Ashley Lyle, she is a clever mix of psychological thriller and teen movies with a touch of horror, lulled by music from the 90s.
The action takes place both in the past (in 1996) and in our present. We discover how the members of a women’s football team had to survive during nineteen months in the Canadian forest after his plane crashed. The mystery around what happened during this period thickens over the episodes.
The ten episodes end on a cliffhanger which begins a season 2.
What do we know about season 2?
Released on Showtime in the United States in November, Yellowjackets experienced real success across the Atlantic. Indeed, as reported variety, it was the second most-viewed series to stream in the history of the platform. The latest episode has been watched by over a million accounts.
While the mystery around the survival of the group seemed to be solved, an event reshuffled all the cards. Indeed, we discovered at the end of the last episode that Lottie, the young girl who had premonitory visions, was still alive in 2021. And that’s not all. She seemed to be behind Travis’ death and Nat’s kidnapping in the final seconds of the episode. For his part, Van, who had just won the municipal elections, was hiding a dark secret, discovered with horror by his wife, Simone.
Great promises for a season 2, which was announced last December by Showtime.
According to the first information revealed by Gary Levine, the president of Showtimeseason 2 of Yellowjackets should be released by the end of the year.
We would like to stay on a cycle of one season per year. The fans deserve it, and you have to strike while the iron is hot.
The writing team began writing these new episodes last January. And expect surprises! Indeed, this time for Deadline Gary Levine said:
I already know that there will be surprises at the level of the characters. There are still many questions about who survived, and what really happened there. There will be characters we don’t know yet.
We think first of all the adult version of Lottiewhich should have a central role in this season 2. There is also the mystery around Javi, the younger brother of Travis, who was not found at the end of season 1.
Since the young girls have spent nineteen months in the forestand that the first season of Yellowjackets covers (approximately) only the first three, several seasons are expected. Bart Nickerson, the series’ co-creator, told The Hollywood Reporter that it had been thought out in five seasons.
So there are still a lot of questions to be clarified, especially on what seemed to be a manhunt in the first episode.
