The plane may have come down, but season 1 of Yellowjackets left fans up in the air. As the episodes spanned the past and the future, we got to know the adult players. However, not every girl on the team made it. Some we know, and others we don’t, but the good news is that sweet Van did survive the experience and we will finally get to meet her in season 2.

Warning: there are spoilers ahead for the first season of the popular Showtime series.

Yellowjackets went on to become one of the biggest hits in recent TV history. In fact, the show went on to receive numerous Emmy nominations. Meanwhile, as fans already know, the series follows two different timelines.  Back in 1996, a girls’ soccer team crashes in the wilderness on the way to a tournament. They, their coach, and some of the boys’ team have to learn about to survive in the wild.

Flash forward to the present day, and the survivors of the Yellowjackets team are struggling to move on in their lives. This is especially so when they realize someone knows the terrible truth about what they did to survive.

Meanwhile, the series also gave us two sets of cast members, brilliantly matching the girls in the past and present. For instance, Sophie Thatcher (Natalie), Jasmin Savoy Brown (Taissa), Sophie Nélisse (Shauna) and Samantha Hanratty (Misty) played the youngsters.

Meanwhile, several Hollywood stars played their adult counterparts. These include Juliette Lewis (Natalie), Tawny Cypress (Taissa), Melanie Lynsky (Shauna) and Christina Ricci (Misty). However, as each episode unfolded, some older versions of the Yellowjackets team have not been seen.

However, the good news is the fan-favorite character, Van (Liv Hewson) did survive in the future. In fact, her adult self has finally been cast, ready for season 2. The sweet-hearted character will be played in the second season by actor Lauren Ambrose. In fact, yesterday, Showtime had the best way to introduce the new cast member on Twitter.

Meanwhile, Ambrose has been seen on TV before, including a role as Claire Fisher in Six Feet Under and Jilly Kitzinger in Torchwood: Miracle Day. Movie credits include Can’t Hardly Wait, Psycho Beach Party, Sleepwalk With Me and Where the Wild Things Are.

So, what has Van been up to since the 1990s?

The announcement of Van’s adult self leads to some serious questions. What has she been doing since the events of season 1 of Yellowjackets? How will her reappearance shape the story in the second season?

The exciting finale of the first season saw a firm split between the survivors of the 1996 crash. However, as the episode came to an end, Van was seen to side with Misty and Lottie, while implying the latter was the Antler Queen. Meanwhile, we have seen that the cult may have continued into the current time. While it is known that Lottie’s adult character has been cast, as yet the actor’s name hasn’t been revealed. Possibly, the adult Van is a major part of keeping the cult alive.

Alternatively, maybe Van, like Shauna, is living the white picket fence life in the suburbs, while pretending the events of the 1990s never happened. At this stage, we can only guess.

Readers, what do you think Van will be doing in season 2 of Yellowjackets? Is she still the same sweet girl we know from season 1? Let us know your thoughts by dropping a comment below!
