Showtime has revealed yet another new image from the upcoming second season of Yellowjackets. The coming-of-age horror drama is slated to return on March 24.
That Yellowjackets Season 2 image gives us our first look at Citizen Detective Walter, who is portrayed by Lord of the Rings vet Elijah Wood. He’s joined by former ’90s child star Christina Ricci, who returns as grown-up Misty.
Yellowjackets currently starring Christina Ricci, Juliette Lewis, Melanie Lynskey, Tawny Cypress, Samantha Hanratty, Sophie Thatcher, Sophie Nélisse, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Steven Krueger and Warren Kole. Season 2 will introduce Emmy-nominated actress Lauren Ambrose (Six feet underground, Serving) as adult Van Palmer, Simone Kessell (Obi-Wan Kenobi) as adult Lottie, and Elijah Wood as citizen detective Walter.
“Equal parts survival epic, psychological horror story, and coming-of-age drama, it tells the saga of a team of wildly talented high school girls soccer players who become the (un)lucky survivors of a plane crash deep in the remote northern wilderness,” reads the series synopsis. “The series traces their descent from a complicated but thriving team to wild clans, while also tracing the lives they’ve tried to piece back together nearly 25 years later, proving that the past is never really over and what that began in the wilderness is far from over.”
Yellowjackets is created and executive produced by Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson. Executive producers are Drew Comins, Karyn Kusama and Jonathan Lisco, who also serves as showrunner. It is produced by Entertainment One.
