As the sun rose this Friday the 13th, the official Yellowjackets social channels went live with a flickering candle and as fans engaged, the candle melted in real time for an hour until dawn broke and finally revealed the first official teaser for season two. We’ve included the candle video below as well.
Season two will return starting Friday, March 24 on streaming and on demand for all Showtime subscribers, before making its on-air debut on Sunday, March 26 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Produced for Showtime by studio Entertainment One (eOne), the series is currently in production in Vancouver.
Season one, which has a rare 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes and received seven Emmy nominations, averaged over five million weekly viewers across platforms and was the second-most streamed series in Showtime history.

Created by Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson (Narcos), Yellowstone stars Emmy nominee and Critics Choice Award winner Melanie Lynskey (Castle Rock), Oscar and Emmy nominee Juliette Lewis (Camping), Emmy nominee Christina Ricci (Z: The Beginning of Everything), and Tawny Cypress (Unforgettable).
Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under, Servant) and Simone Kessell (Obi-Wan Kenobi) have also joined the second season as series regulars, along with Elijah Wood (The Lord of the Rings trilogy) in a season-long guest arc.
Equal parts survival epic, psychological horror story and coming-of-age drama, Yellowjackets is the saga of a team of wildly-talented high school girls soccer players who become the (un)lucky survivors of a plane crash deep in the remote northern wilderness.
The series chronicles their descent from a complicated but thriving team to savage clans, while also tracking the lives they’ve attempted to piece back together nearly 25 years later, proving that the past is never really past and what began out in the wilderness is far from over.
Season two also stars Sophie Nélisse (The Book Thief), Jasmin Savoy Brown (The Leftovers), Sophie Thatcher (Prospect), Samantha Hanratty (Shameless), and Courtney Eaton (Mad Max: Fury Road).
The cast is rounded out by Liv Hewson (Santa Clarita Diet), Steven Krueger (The Originals), Warren Kole (Shades of Blue) and Kevin Alves.
Yellowjackets Season 3 is executive produced by Lyle, Nickerson and fellow showrunner Jonathan Lisco. Drew Comins of Creative Engine also serves as executive producer. Karyn Kusama directed the pilot.
Showtime announced last month today that the network had already given the green light to a third season.
“With Yellowjackets’ runaway success in season one and the pent-up anticipation for season two, we wanted to maximize the momentum by fast tracking season three now,” said Chris McCarthy, President/CEO, Showtime and Paramount Media Networks.
“The show’s ambition is only exceeded by its execution, and I thank the incredible creative team behind it, including Ashley, Bart, Jonathan, eOne and the Showtime team, for turning this into such a success.”
