Yellowjackets Renewed by Showtime


Showtime has given a season-three order to Yellowjackets ahead of its second-season premiere.

Season two of the thriller debuts March 24 on streaming and on-demand for all Showtime subscribers before making its on-air debut on March 26 at 9 p.m. The first season received seven Emmy nominations, averaged over 5 million weekly viewers across platforms and was the second-most streamed series in Showtime history.

Produced for Showtime by studio Entertainment One (eOne), the series is currently in production in Vancouver. It was created by Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson (Narcos) and is executive produced by Lyle, Nickerson and fellow showrunner Jonathan Lisco.

“With Yellowjackets’ runaway success in season one and the pent-up anticipation for season two, we wanted to maximize the momentum by fast-tracking season three now,” said Chris McCarthy, president and CEO of Showtime and Paramount Media Networks. “The show’s ambition is only exceeded by its execution, and I thank the incredible creative team behind it, including Ashley, Bart, Jonathan, eOne and the Showtime team, for turning this into such a success.”
