Less than a month into the new year, Yellowjackets has emerged as one of the best shows of 2022. Featuring Melanie Lynskey, Juliette Lewis and Christina Ricci, the series explores the dark depths of human life after a girls soccer team attempts to survive in the wilderness following a plane crash. With season one wrapped up, fans are now looking ahead to season two. While many things are up in the air, the show’s creators are looking to take things to a new level.
“When we first pitched the show, we said we wanted to make a show about the best and the worst that people are capable of. Ultimately, whenever you’re telling stories, you’re really trying to examine, and to some extent, interrogate yourself. I think that ideally this premise gives us a lot of room to really investigate that concept and to do it in a way that is hopefully really fun as opposed to kind of academic or overly intellectual,” Yellowjackets showrunner Ashley Lyle told Deadline.
“I think that we’re just so excited to keep playing in this world. There are a lot of opportunities where we’re going and where we’ve been planning to go get darker and get weirder. We’ll likely get a lot more of both of those things but hopefully we can keep it fun.”
Halfway through season one, Showtime renewed Yellowjackets for a second season. More details regarding the next run will come in the following weeks.
