Has Yellowjackets been renewed for Season 3? Here’s what we know:

Renewed Or Cancelled?

Season 1 of Yellowjackets gained immense popularity and momentum right after its release. It became the buzz of the internet and caught everyone’s attention. The first season is a gripping and suspenseful series, following a group of young women who survived a plane crash in the wilderness and are forced to rely on their survival skills to stay alive.

The show is structured around two timelines – one in which the women are stranded in the wilderness, and another in which they are adults living with the aftermath of their traumatic experience. Season 2 picks up in a similar vein, although the focus is more equally divided.

If you’ve finished watching this one, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know so far:

Shauna, Tai, Misty, and Nat are embroiled in controversy as they deal with Adam Martin’s death and the subsequent coverup by the ladies. The police become involved as Callie is dragged into the mess as well. Lottie is once again seeing visions of the God of the wilderness, which she hadn’t for quite some time.

Others are also suffering from trauma and violence, indicating that “It” has returned to get something back. In the past timeline, Lottie’s influence over the group grows. Their devotion to the wilderness is more brazen and also has positive gains for the girls. Shauna has a tragic miscarriage; Javi is found lacking scratches from the wilderness; and there is a growing rebellion inside the Yellowjackets to give into their primal instincts.

However, it must be noted that season 3 of Yellowjackets has run into production troubles. Ashley Lyle, the creator of the show, put her pen down with the other writers to support the ongoing WGA strike. The show of solidarity came on the very first day of the beginning of writing season 3, so all things considered, the release for the same will be indefinitely delayed.
