Yellowjackets Season 2: Everything We Know

The hit Showtime thriller follows a group of teen girls stranded in the wilderness.

Let the fan theories commence: Yellowjackets is getting a second season.

The newest hit thriller follows members of a high school women's soccer team in two timelines: the immediate aftermath of a 1996 plane crash that left them stranded in the wilderness for 19 months, and 25 years later as the women still living try to keep what they did to survive secret. The brutal premise is part survival horror, part psychological drama, showing how the teenage friendships initially devolve and later get warped by trauma and secrets over the years–and that's before you add in its excellent '90s punk soundtrack.

Showtime announced the series' season 2 renewal earlier this month, halfway through its first season, which currently has a 100 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes and a Critic's Choice nomination for best drama series. The network’s entertainment presidents Gary Levine and Jana Winograde saying they are "overwhelmed by both the acclaim and the audience response," per The Hollywood Reporter.

"Clearly there is a hunger for originality and audacity, and our incredible showrunners Ashley [Lyle], Bart [Nickerson] and Jonathan [Lisco], along with their pitch-perfect cast, have delivered that and so much more. I can’t wait to see the surprises they have in store for us in Season 2," Levine said in a statement.

With three episodes left in season 1, and the finale airing January 16, fans are clamoring for as much info as possible to solve their theories on how certain characters died and where the survivors ended up–minus leads Shauna (Melanie Lynskey), Taissa (Tawny Cypress), Natalie (Juliette Lewis), Misty (Christina Ricci). As for season 2, Levine told Deadline that the writers will start working on new episodes next month.

"I do know that there will be some surprises in terms of the characters," he told the outlet. "There are still lots of questions about who survived, what happened out there. There will be some real surprises in terms of that and I think some characters you may not even have met yet."
