Showtime Reveals Premiere Date for New Drama 'Yellowjackets' Starring Christina Ricci, Juliette Lewis and Melanie Lynskey

Showtime has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming original drama series Yellowjackets starring Christina Ricci, Juliette Lewis, Melanie Lynskey and Tawny Cypress.

The first season will launch on Sunday, November 14 at 10/9c.

A team of wildly talented high school girls soccer players become the (un)lucky survivors of a plane crash deep in the remote northern wilderness. The series will chronicle 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.

The drama also stars Ella Purnell, Samantha Hanratty, Sophie Thatcher, Sophie NĂ©lisse, Steven Krueger, Jasmin Savoy Brown and Warren Kole.

Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson created the drama. They executive produce with Jonathan Lisco, Drew Comins and director Karyn Kusama. Entertainment One and Creative Engine Entertainment produce.
