Fans of Showtime’s gripping drama “Yellowjackets” can rejoice! While a premiere date remains under wraps, co-creator Ashley Lyle offered some exciting tidbits about the highly anticipated season 3.

A Thriving Return to the Wilderness

Lyle, speaking at the GLAAD Media Awards after the show’s win for “Outstanding Drama Series,” hinted at a shift in tone for the upcoming season. She suggests a return to the raw and intense atmosphere that captivated audiences in season 1. Lyle remained tight-lipped on specifics but revealed, “We see Season 3 as a little bit of a return to Season 1 in terms of the vibe, though. All I will say is that the girls have been out there for a while, and they’re thriving.” This cryptic message hints that the surviving teens may have adapted and established a sense of order in their harsh wilderness environment.

Picking Up After a Fiery Season 2 Finale

The season 2 finale left viewers on the edge of their seats. The cabin burned down, and the remaining survivors faced a harsh winter without shelter. While the characters’ ultimate fate is a mystery, glimpses of a harrowing future have been teased.

Cast Negotiations and Filming on the Horizon

Samantha Hanratty, who portrays the enigmatic teen Misty, revealed that the cast is currently renegotiating contracts. She also hinted at a “light start date” for production near Vancouver, British Columbia. The star is eager to return to filming, saying, “I want to get back there so bad. I want to start filming. I want to read these scripts. I want to know what the heck is going to happen.”

Beyond Awards: A Show with a Cause

Yellowjackets” has garnered critical acclaim and multiple Emmy nominations. However, Lyle highlights the significance of the show’s recent GLAAD Award win. She emphasizes recognizing its LGBTQ+ representation is more meaningful than any other award. Lyle states, “Especially in this moment where queer rights are under very direct attack. And to keep that as part of the conversation and reach as many people as possible with the message that that is not OK is at the core of our priorities.”
