Yellowjackets Season 2 Episode 6 Preview: Release Date, Time & Where To Watch

Yellowjackets Episode 6

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.

The truth links the two timelines and its preservation becomes the compulsive objective of a few of the survivors in the present day. Melanie Lynskey, Juliette Lewis, Tawny Cypress, and Christina Ricci star in the headline roles.

If you loved the first season and the cliffhanger it ends with the shocking revelation about Loretta’s cult, you are in the right place.

Here’s everything we know about episode 6 of Yellowjackets season 2, including its release date, time and where you can watch this.

Where Can I Watch Yellowjackets?

Yellowjackets is available to watch on Showtime and Paramount+ services. Although the broadcast will not be simultaneous on the cable networks, it will be available to watch on Sundays on Showtime in the prime time slot.

This is an exclusive original series and new episodes are released weekly on Fridays on the Showtime app. They are also additionally available to watch on Roku, Hulu, and Amazon Prime, considering the region.

Yellowjackets Episode 6 Release Date

Yellowjackets Episode 6 will release on Sunday 7th May at 9pm (ET) for those in the US watching cable network. However, for those in the UK and those watching digitally on Showtime or Paramount +, the show will drop weekly episodes on Fridays, which means that it should come out on the 5th of May.

Yellowjackets should drop with subtitles available whilst watching on catch-up. Episode 6 is expected to be roughly 58 minutes long, which is consistent with the rest of the series. The reason for a week’s gapping for the next episode is yet not explained.

How Many Episodes Will Yellowjackets Season 2 Have?

Showtime has confirmed that season 2 of Yellowjackets will have a total of 9 episodes, dropping weekly as mentioned earlier. The previous season had a total of 10 episodes, although it is not clear why this season has less. Perhaps the runtime for the later episodes will be a few minutes longer to make up for the gap in episodes! So after episode 6, there are 3 more episodes to go.

What Happened in Episode 5?

Episode 5 felt like a filler episode with no real development of the story. In the present timeline, Tai and Van rekindled their acquaintances after a long time. The interaction was love-hate, as we expected. But there is definitely something ominous brewing beneath the surface as we saw Tai sleepwalking again. Shauna and Jeff’s master plan to distract Matt and Kevyn failed miserably and they are not out of the woods at all.

Natalie and Lottie’s weird coming together continued to surprise. The “darkness” that helped the girls survive the wilderness threatens to derail their present. Shauna’s pregnancy is coming to an end. But will we see the birth of a new life in the wilderness? Tune in for episode 6 to find out!

We’ve covered the whole show with a detailed and lengthy recap, which you can find below:
