What are the Speculations about Yellowjackets Season 2?
As of now, no news for the new season of Yellowjackets has been announced by the trades yet. For the viewers of the critically acclaimed survival drama, the series seems to have a limited run. That means the series might only have one season.
However, the network channel of the series, Showtime, has not billed it as a limited series. The story of the protagonists can go on to the next season. So, the hopes of the fans are still up! The series takes inspiration from two real-life incidents, the Donner Party and the 1972 Andes flight incident. Both of the incidents are an example of survival by resorting to cannibalism.
