High Schools dramas are just something. They just got something so addictive to them that once you start looking, you just can’t stop in between. And if the show has got some sports in it, we just grip the seats tightly with eyes not leaving the screen. Add a bit of supernatural and disasters, and we have Showtime’s upcoming TV show “Yellowjackets”. The upcoming show is a psychological horror story, and the characters need to survive. And the survival never stops. It was there in the past, it is going to be in the present, and they will have to survive the future as well.
The girls’ soccer team from the high school has got some talent. And it all goes down as the team gets into a plane crash. Luckily some of the passengers do survive the crash, but now they are stuck in the remote northern wilderness. Getting out of a traumatic situation, the team has been thriving. And it isn’t the same anymore. And people can’t wait to know the release date of Yellowjackets!
What Is Yellowjackets About?
From what we know, the show will be focusing on the past, present, and future of the soccer team girls. Even after 25 years of the crash, the girls are not really getting over the things that happened. The past keeps coming back to the present, making it harder for them to look at the future. Taking a look at the trailer, there have been some hints given, but not so much. We get a glimpse of three teenagers wearing huge, furry masks, animal skins, and animal horns.
There are many questions. How did they survive the crash? How did the crash even happen? What happened in the deep forest? Why is it catching up to the girls now? What are they doing after school and the crash? Most of them are going to be answered in season 1. While a lot of them are going to leave us on the cliffhanger, creating more questions.
When Is The The Release Date For “Yellowjackets”?
As of now, the show is still in the middle of production. So the release date for Yellowjackets is still not announced yet. But as confirmed by the team, the show will be coming out later in 2021. But as told by the trailer, the show is coming out in “Fall of 2021,” to be precise. Season 1 of the show is going to have ten episodes, with each episode being around 60 minutes. It is going to be on air for two-and-a-half months. Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson are going to be the executive producers of the show. Ashley and Bart have worked on the shows like Narcos: Mexico, Dispatches from Elsewhere, and The Originals as a writer.
