The hit Showtime series Yellowjackets hit our tiny screens by storm in the fall of 2021. I can’t remember the last time a nonfantasy show had my friends and coworkers in such a tizzy. So, it came as no surprise when the series was renewed for a season 2. Now on the heels of the Yellowjackets season 2 premiere, Showtime has announced they have renewed the series for season 3!

“With ‘Yellowjackets’ runaway success in Season 1 and the pent-up anticipation for Season 2, we wanted to maximize the momentum by fast-tracking Season 3 now.” Showtime President Chris McCarthy said in a statement. “The show’s ambition is only exceeded by its execution. I thank the incredible creative team behind it, including Ashley, Bart, Jonathan, eOne and the Showtime team, for turning this into such a success.”

Yellowjackets is like an adult version of Prime Videos The Wilds. The series follows a high school soccer team whose plane crashes into the woods. Now, they are forced to survive. The series takes place across two timelines. One, while stranded on the island documented their attempt to stay alive for 19 months. Then, 25 years later, explore who they are now. How their lives have been affected, as well as hold onto the dark secrets that they keep. However, things aren’t always what they seem. What you think is truth barely scratches the surface.

Melanie Lynskey, Tawny Cypress, Christina Ricci, and Juliette Lewis star as the adult versions of Shauna, Taissa, Misty, and Natalie, while Sophie Nélisse, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Sammi Hanratty, and Sophie Thatcher play their teen counterparts.
