Yellowjackets Season 3 Release Date


After the release of the first season of the Yellowjacket series back in 2021 it just recently got renewed for a second season in August 2022 and now is set to release on the 23rd of March 2023. Since the series’s second season is yet to release, we cannot say for certain if there will be another season following it. And even if there were to be one it would at least take another year for the series to get renewed for it.

But we surely will get a rough idea of there being a third season once the last episode of the second season airs. We could conclude it after we watch it or could just wait for the official team to make an announcement for the same. Though the fans would love it if it were to continue on for a little longer as it already is a one-of-a-kind show with its unique storyline that makes sure to grab your attention and pique your interest.

All we can do for now is to wait for the second season to release. It would most probably have 10 episodes similar to the format the first season followed.

Yellowjackets Season 3 Story

If there were to be a third season for the said series it would most probably be following the same storyline as the one that preceded it.

Yellowjackets Season 1 Story:

The story of Yellowjackets revolves around a group of highly capable girls who are members of a high school soccer team. They were to travel to Seattle for a national tournament and while doing so their plane crashes deep in an unknown untouched wilderness with a lot of their members dead and the remaining left to survive in an unknown place. The situation was so unfortunate that you could not even comment if the ones alive were lucky or the ones who died were.

After the crash, there were only four survivors and they were rescued after a span of 19 months. The story portrays parallels between how they were before the crash and what they are now after the incident. Now as middle-aged women they are living in constant fear trying to hide something that happened back when they crashed. The story even hinted at possible cannibalism as they were left clueless with just the thought of surviving.

The story has more than just a survival game theme and possible cannibalism. It has a lot more going on. It tends to portray the perspectives of different people making the show all the more interesting. The series is well directed and displayed as it does not fall back on highlighting gore scenes or blood. One with a weak mind should think twice before indulging themselves in watching it.

Is Yellowjackets Based On A True Story?

The series having been tagged as one of the best series has more than just that. It in fact is a story inspired by true incidents. It is said to have been inspired by an incident that took place way back on the 13th of October 1972. The incident is now referred to as the Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571 disaster. The flight had 45 passengers in all, there were 19 members of a Rugby union team.

A total of 34 members survived the crash but their life was made hell because of the issues that came along after that. They were now supposed to survive in the mountains with frigid temperatures while there is a lack of essentials. A lot of them were even injured because of the crash. They were left stranded in such conditions for about 72 days and it is said that they took in any means to make sure they survived.

We cannot state that they literally just portrayed us the story of flight 571 in the series Yellowjackets but they sure did take inspiration from it. Like we have a sports team aboard the flight, unexpected plane crash, wild climatic situations, possible cannibalism, and similar such aspects.

Yellowjackets Season 3 Trailer

Since the third season of the said series is not officially announced or hinted at yet there is no official trailer for the same. But you can watch the trailers for the first and second seasons of Yellowjackets online on Youtube or Hulu.

Where To Watch Yellowjackets Season 3 Online?

 If there were to be a third season of the said series it would be released online on Showtime similar to the first two seasons of the series. It would later be made available on Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, and even maybe on Pluto TV app.

If you are somebody who indulges in watching gore and closer to reality sort of series or movies then this show is just for you and if you are somebody who cannot handle horrendous scenes it is suggested you do not watch this.

Yellowjackets Ratings

The show has an IMDB rating of 7.9 out of 10 and is an interesting series for thriller lovers.

Is Misty From Yellowjackets A Serial Killer?

Well this is a question that has been frequently asked and there has been no confirmation about it yet. But the reason this theory was even raised is because of how interested she is with dealing injuries. Even though all the girls had similar survival skills Misty’s skill did not seem rusty at all even after all these years. Lets just hope we get an answer for it soon enough.

Is Shauna From Yellowjackets A Murderer?

Well yes she is, she killed Adam her boyfriend based on some misunderstandings.

Why Is Taissa Haunted By Sleepwalking In Yellowjackets?

When she was stuck in the wilderness there were times when she did literally unexpected stuff in her sleep, she was caught eating mud and even literally woke up in a tree. Though the sleepwalking stopped once she was rescued the memories and blackmailing causes her to fear it all over again.

Are There Any Surprise Survivors In Yellowjackets?

As the story only focused on the main 5, that is, Natalie, Travis, Taissa, Shauna, and Misty we considered they were the only survivors though it was never confirmed and Lottie’s arrival in the story made it even more of a possibility for there to be other survivors.

Is Lottie involved In Travis’s Death In Yellowjackets?

Well it is not confirmed yet but it seems to be obvious as she was the one who sent the postcards and had a literal candlelit ritual at his death.

Does The Story Of Yellowjackets Include Anything Supernatural?

Well this is yet another question that has not been properly answered yet. There have been occurrences which state that there could be something supernatural but there are some which state that it could just be their imagination because of the condition they were in.
