The series, which follows a women’s soccer team after surviving a plane crash in the Canadian wilderness, initially drew many comparisons to ABC. Lost but has carved out a unique place for itself in the crowded television landscape, racking up seven Emmy nominations. The grown-up cast of Juliette Lewis, Tawny Cypress, Christina Ricci, and Melanie Lynskey bring a meta layer of ’90s heft to the show. The series earned its own Emmy nomination, with Lynskey and Ricci’s performances adding to yellow jackets‘ total number of applications.
Casting news for Season 2 had already started rolling in before this recent production announcement. Lauren Ambrose and Simone Kessell were added to the cast as adult Van Palmer and adult Lottie Matthews, respectively. Elijah Wood also recently joined the cast as a citizen detective named Walter. Not much has been revealed about Wood’s character, though her storyline mostly intersects with Ricci’s as an adult Misty. Wood starred alongside Ricci in the 1997 drama Ang Lee The ice storm and also teamed up with Lynskey for the beloved Cartoon Network miniseries in 2014 Over the garden wall.
While season 1 of yellow jackets delivered some twists to its audience, there is still plenty of storylines that will continue in the show’s second season. Between the kidnapping of Natalie, which teased the re-emerging threat of Lottie, and the ever-present questions about cannibalism, there are plenty of treats for fans to focus on in Season 2. As with many series fueled by the mystery, yellow jackets has kept many aspects of the upcoming season under wraps, teasing little bits and pieces on social media – a trend that will likely continue throughout Season 2’s official production window.
