This season of Yellow Jackets has been an undiluted success for Showtime, according to Showtime entertainment chief executive officer Gary Levine. Several ‘Best of 2021’ lists, a perfect rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and an ever-increasing public response have left us speechless.
These outstanding showrunners Ashley, Bart, and Jonathan together with their ideal ensemble have clearly satisfied the audience’s desire for novelty and daring. They have delivered on both counts. The second season of the show is going to be a lot of fun.”
Yellowjacket Season 2: Release Date
According to Gary Levine, Showtime Networks’ head of entertainment, a “yearly cycle” for the show is in the works. Our audiences deserve it, and I also believe that a show with this much momentum shouldn’t be allowed to fizzle out.”
The start of filming could be delayed if the Covid-19 Omicron variant surge this winter causes production to be delayed. In other words, if all goes according to plan, we could see the return of Yellowjackets season 2 in November or December of 2022.

Has Jackie really died?
There is a belief among certain fans that Jackie may return in the future, despite her death in the season’s first episode. Fans’ theories about the January 2022 finale were tossed aside by Lynskey afterward.
“As far as I know [she’s dead],” the actress told The New York Times. “I don’t see how she comes back from [freezing to death]. And I think Ella’s contract was always just a year.”
Purnell, for her part, hinted at a potential return to the spotlight in March 2022, telling Entertainment Tonight, “I can’t tell you! I know things. I know things. But I can’t tell you. I’m not saying whether I’m dead or alive, I’m just saying you might see me.”
What will be the storyline of Yellowjackets Season 2?
When Yellowjackets returns for a second season, there will be a slew of new puzzles to be unlocked. Which one of the other members of the soccer squad did the rest of the first episode eat? Who was behind the construction of that eerie outpost? What the earth is going on with Tai these days?
As a cult leader in the past and present, Lottie is likely to be at the heart of the conflict in this story. Misty and Shauna’s team will have their work cut out for them if she doesn’t rescue Nat, who was kidnapped at the end of season one.
The only problem is that Shauna will have to deal with the consequences of murdering Adam, especially since her daughter Callie knows; Tai is possessed by some type of mystical force that makes her behead dogs; and Misty just poisoned Jessica!
