Yellowjackets Season 2 Released Early 2023


When a new series becomes a hit with audiences, there’s usually a desire for more as soon as possible. However, for Showtime’s multiple Emmy-nominated series, more yellow jackets won’t come as soon as hoped. Fans may have to wait until next year before the show’s second season returns to the small screen.

Talk to The envelopeseries co-creators and showrunners Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson said the addictive series’ second season will begin production in late August, and the series will then have to aim for an early 2023 release to make a comeback. “We’re looking at the first quarter of 2023,” Lyle said when asked about the series’ return. “We are on a very similar production track in terms of time to last season, although of course we have to shoot an extra episode because we already shot the pilot last time. I think we will finish filming around February and we’ll be streaming shortly after.”


Admittedly, this would sting fans of the series who had hoped for the show to return in late 2022 as the president of Showtime Networks Entertainment suggests. Gary Levin at TV Insider. “We are working for a first end of 2022,” he said. “We would like to stay on an annual cycle.” Levine went on to add that given the momentum the show has had since its debut in November 2021, it would be best not to let this pass.

But we really went straight from the end of Season 1 to Season 2,” Lyle said. Let’s go on to explain the serialized nature of the show and why attention to detail is needed to get it right.

The show taking place in two separate timelines makes producing the show all the more complex and living up to the quality of the first season is not lost on creator and showrunner Nickerson:

“One thing about the show that’s been going really well, that maybe I didn’t anticipate, is the responsibility that Ashley and I and Jonathan and the whole team feel to get to the level of affection that the public shows,” Nickerson added. “The idea of ​​delivering something that wasn’t as good as the first season was just too much to bear. So I said, ‘I think we should take a little more time with this and make sure that’s really good.'”
