It might be challenging to produce a successful television series in the cutthroat environment of the television industry. It is possible for a television series to nonetheless fade into obscurity despite receiving positive reviews from both viewers and media outlets because of the highly competitive nature of the television market.
In recent years, with the advent of multiple production businesses that dominate the global market, such as Netflix and Amazon, it has become more complicated than it has ever been to establish the ideal formula for a show.
When a new show comes along that is critically acclaimed and widely viewed, production companies have no choice but to seize the opportunity to develop additional seasons of the show.
Yellowjackets are one example of this type of show. It tells the story of a high school girls’ soccer team involved in a plane crash in the middle of the Canadian wilderness and must learn to survive.
The show was an instant smash with both critics and viewers, and the first season’s ten episodes proved to be such a success that, only a few weeks after the premiere of the first season, the creative team behind the show got together again to begin working on a script for the upcoming second season.
In point of fact, the show was so well received that the second season was already scheduled to air before the conclusion of the first season was even broadcast. Showtime, the network behind the hit series, has been basking in the success of the show, with entertainment president Gary Levine quoted as saying:
“Yellowjackets has been an unadulterated sensation for Showtime.”
In light of all this and the fact that hundreds of fans immediately take in any information on Season 2, the following is an exhaustive look at everything we know about Yellowjackets Season 2… so far.
