p.s. Officially: Season 2 of the TV series “Yellowjackets” premieres on March 26, 2023!
Shauna and Jackie are best friends. And even though they differ in their attitude to life, they are brought together by the game in the school soccer team “Yellowjackets”, which includes other girls. Devout Allie, the lover of the dubious high Natalie, the newcomer Misty, the self-confident Taissa, the friendly Van, as well as their coach Ben Scott – all of them are going to go on an exciting journey to another city for the tournament.
Before the trip, a conflict arose between Shauna and Taissa. The new set included a first-year girl who was more interested in the prom than the upcoming match. Wanting to win at any cost, Taissa seriously wounded the girl, forcing her to no longer appear on the field. Shauna was angry and got into a fight with Taissa. Jackie, being the captain, was able to influence their relationship.
The father of one of the soccer players orders a private jet so that the teenagers and their escorts fly in comfort. At some point, they start dispensing drinks and many lose consciousness. Shauna woke up shortly before hitting the ground and tried with all her might to wake up Jackie sleeping next to her. The plane crashed, while still giving some passengers the opportunity to get out of it alive.
Frame from the TV showIn parallel with these events, the series shows the lives of survivors many years later. Shauna is a housewife who lacks thrills. Taissa works for the government, lives with her partner and has a child. Misty works in a hospice caring for the sick. Natalie attends anonymous meetings in which she speaks in blurry, incomprehensible speeches.
But circumstances appear that force the girls to meet again and even discuss what happened outside the reach of civilization. Then, finding themselves in an uninhabited place, they had to survive by all available means. They agreed never to mention those events, but the current circumstances are different…

- Each episode of Season 1 was watched by over 4 million people. The main audience consisted of adolescents from 14 to 18 years old, and mostly girls.
- The first viewers of the series were film critics, who watched 6 episodes. Their ratings were very high, despite the fact that at first the storyline seems complex and even monotonous due to the large number of confused memories. However, everything changes in subsequent episodes. Also, critics noted the mixing of various genres, although the declared genre of the picture is a thriller. This fact only makes the TV show different from other projects.
