YELLOWJACKETS Producer is Excited To Tell The Post-Rescue Story in Future Seasons


Showtime’s Yellowjackets series has run through two great seasons so far, with Season 2 ending in a surprisingly shocking way. I’ve enjoyed the story that this genre-bending series is telling and I’m excited to see how the story continues to play out for the characters that fill it.

In future seasons of the series, the story is going to get really interesting as it will lead to what happens to the survivors of the plane crash after they are rescued and return to civilization. This is something that the show briefly touched on in Season 2.

This is part of the story that Yellowjackets director and producer Karyn Kusama is really excited about telling. During an interview with Crumpa, Kusama shared:

« I’ve been so excited by this. The concept of that immediate aftermath of re-entry into the world, to me, there’s a whole season worth of material there. And the fact that this is such a long game that each of these characters is facing, in terms of reorienting themselves to whatever normalcy is supposed to be. I’m sure we’re going to learn that their normal is a lot different than our normal… There’s a lot that needs to be figured out between Season 2 and Season 3. »

Yellowjackets was renewed for a third season well before Season 2 even premiered. The series has been a huge hit for Showtime and most people that have watched it love it. After Season 2 of Yellowjackets wrapped, co-creator Ashley Lyle revealed that a bonus episode will be released at some point between Season 2 and Season 3, but no release date for that has been set.

Lyle previously revealed that they have a five-season plan and they are on track to deliver the full story they wanted to tell. When talking about the full plan that they initially pitched, they explained why they feel five seasons is the right stopping point. Lyle shared:

« The original plan was about five seasons, and we feel like we’re still on track for that. There’s always room for things. We don’t really see this as being more than a five-season show. I think that there are shows that can go forever, but I think that when you’re telling such a deeply serialized story and it’s about these characters’ lives, you want to reach a satisfying conclusion and not just drag things out forever. This isn’t really one of those setup shows where it can go anywhere. So far, we’ve been really on track. Season 2 is largely what we always planned, but you do make a lot of discoveries along the way and so it’s always a little bit surprising. »

Co-creator Bart Nickerson also talked about how the process works in coming up with the story and journey of these characters and how nothing is set in stone:

« In terms of some of the major places that we wanted to land or move the story to, that is happening, but a lot of the dynamics and what it means to the characters are different than I necessarily thought they would be. Some of the major sign posts are still happening, they’re just happening in different ways, which I kind of feel like is perfect for keeping the experience alive and vital on our side. We take a lot of excitement from the discovery portion. It’s a big part of our process and the thing that we enjoy the most about doing this. We feel like the architecture that we started with is still holding up, but all the rooms are turning out pretty different in this exciting way. »

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.”

Have you watched the first two seasons of Yellowjackets? Are you excited for the story to continue?
