The drama stars Melanie Lynskey, Juliette Lewis, Christina Ricci, Tawny Cypress, Ella Purnell, Samantha Hanratty, Sophie Thatcher, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Sophie Nélisse, Steven Krueger 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 produce.

"Yellowjackets has been an unadulterated sensation for Showtime," said Gary Levine, President of Entertainment, Showtime. "We are overwhelmed by both the acclaim and the audience response to our series, including several 'Best of 2021' lists, a 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes and snowballing viewership. Clearly there is a hunger for originality and audacity, and our incredible showrunners Ashley, Bart and Jonathan, 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 two."

"We are beyond grateful for the incredible support we've received for this show - both from Gary Levine, Jana Winograde, David Nevins, Amy Israel, Dave Binegar, and the rest of the fantastic Showtime team, and from our growing team of 'Citizen Detectives' at home," added Lyle, Nickerson and Lisco. "We can't wait to continue telling this story with our amazing cast and crew. The saga continues!"
