Yellowjackets promises even more plot twists and modern mysteries in its second season, which premieres Friday on Showtime.
Already renewed for a third season, the series travels between the past and present of a ’90s high school soccer team whose plane crashes in the Canadian wilderness. Twenty-five years after the tragedy, the adult survivors are still followed by the darkness they discovered in the wild and in themselves. The second season sees the teen survivors facing a harsh winter as the once-thriving team breaks out into savage clans.
Tawny Cypress, Juliette Lewis, Melanie Lynskey and Christina Ricci are the starring returning foursome, while their teen versions are played by Jasmin Savoy Brown, Sophie Thatcher, Sophie Nélisse and Samantha Hanratty, respectively. Lauren Ambrose, Elijah Wood and Simone Kessell join the cast as season two regulars.
The show’s first season was nominated for seven Emmys, including best drama series, best lead actress for Lynskey and best supporting actress for Ricci. Below, find out when and how to watch Yellowjackets with or without cable online, including for free.
