The series follows their current life in 2021, as well as their attempts to survive.
Yellowjackets Season 3 Release Date
Ahead of the Season 2 launch in late March, Showtime has formally ordered a third season of the breakthrough hit Yellowjackets.
According to Chris McCarthy, President/CEO of Showtime and Paramount Media Networks, “With Yellowjackets’ spectacular success in Season 1 and the pent-up expectation for Season 2, we decided to maximise the momentum by fast tracking season three now.” The show’s ambition is only surpassed by its execution, so I’d want to thank the fantastic creative team behind it, which includes Ashley, Bart, Jonathan, eOne, and the SHOWTIME crew.
The television show, which Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson created, centers on a group of women who are coping with the emotional trauma caused by the horrible things they did to survive when their plane crashed in a lonely area of the north 25 years before.
