I can’t really get too much into detail, but I will say the first couple scripts had the entire cast gasping. So it’s even wilder.
Elijah Wood joins the cast for the second season
In other news about Yellowjackets, Lord of the Rings star Elijah Wood joins in the second season and will reportedly spend quite some time with Ricci’s character, Misty. Variety reported that the Frodo Baggins actor will feature as Citizen Detective Walter, who will challenge Misty in unexpected ways.

When will season 2 of Yellowjackets premiere?
Currently, the premiere date for season 2 has yet to be announced. In fact, filming isn’t expected to wrap until February 2023. Speaking to The Wrap, Bart Nickerson said:
One thing about the show doing really well, that maybe I hadn’t anticipated, was how much responsibility Ashley [Lyle] and I and Jonathan and the whole team feel to earn the level of affection the audience is showing.
Nickerson added that the idea of delivering something that wasn’t as good as the first season was just too much to bear, adding:
So I said: ‘I think that we should take a little more time with this and just make sure it’s really good.’
