Everything We Know About Season 2 of <i>Yellowjackets</i>

#Season #ltigtYellowjacketsltigt

Showtime’s Yellowjackets has been a huge hit this winter, and fans are already desperate for more. The good news is that the show has already been renewed for season 2; the bad news is that they still have to film it, so it might be a while before we get to see what else happened out in the woods.

In the meantime, this is all the info we’ve gathered about season 2 of Yellowjackets so far.

Will there be a season 2 of Yellowjackets?

Yes, Yellowjackets renewed for season 2 in December, and the show’s Instagram account posted a fun announcement with one of the mysterious postcards reading, “Season 2.”

They captioned it, “Those girls were special. They were champions. The #Yellowjackets will return for Season 2!”

Yellowjackets has been an unadulterated sensation for Showtime,” Showtime entertainment president Gary Levine told The Hollywood Reporter. “We are overwhelmed by both the acclaim and the audience response to our series, including several ‘Best of 2021’ lists, a 100 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes and snowballing viewership. Clearly there is a hunger for originality and audacity, and our incredible showrunners Ashley, Bart and Jonathan, along with their pitch-perfect cast, have delivered that and so much more. I can’t wait to see the surprises they have in store for us in season two.”

Will there be more seasons after?

Yellowjackets creators Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickersonn also told THR in an interview for their TV Podcast that they have big plans for the series.

“We pitched it as a five-season idea,” Nickerson said. Then at the Vulture Festival panel for the series, star Melanie Lynskey mentioned that Nickerson and Lyle have already talked to her about a longer run, all the way to the end of five seasons. Long live Shauna!

In an interview with ELLE, Lyle said that the pair have been planning things out for the long-term.

“We absolutely have a plan and we have, I think, maybe most importantly, an endpoint,” said Lyle. “We know what we want to be building toward. As writers, we have to be flexible, especially now that we have this incredible writing staff and you have all these beautiful brains coming together to think about the paces that we can put these characters through. But we do have an endpoint, and we have tent poles along the way of things we know we want to happen. To some extent, the question is just, if we have an idea of how we get there, can we find a better idea?”

When will season 2 of Yellowjackets come out?

Production on the first season was delayed by COVID-19, but with fans hungry for more of Showtime’s big hit, it seems likely they’ll push through to release season 2 soon, but an exact premiere date hasn’t been confirmed yet.

Good news though: Filming on season 2 will commence in Vancouver in “mid-August,” stars Melanie Lynskey and Tawney Cypress told Entertainment Tonight.

What will season 2 of Yellowjackets be about?

Right now, the show is exploring the repercussions of the team’s 19 months stuck in the wilderness, the possible supernatural forces holding them there, and the interpersonal relationships that are keeping people hooked. That timeline starts in 1996, but it looks like we’ll be seeing more of the Yellowjackets survivors in modern times.

Especially our favs played by Juliette Lewis, Tawny Cypress, Melanie Lynskey, and Christina Ricci.

Fans are still trying to figure out the big mysteries, though they have some theories about them. But one of the biggest theories—that it’s Jackie who ends up falling to her death in the pit— has proven to be incorrect. Jackie died in the season 1 finale, freezing to death just a few feet from the warm cabin after a fight with her supposed BFF Shauna. Another reveal was that someone named “Lottie Matthews” is alive in the older women’s present reality, though whether it’s actually Lottie has yet to be revealed.

The finale also saw Taissa win her senate run on the same night her wife discovers a very disturbing altar featuring the family’s dog…or its head, anyway. Is Taissa aware of her dark magic or is she really sleep-walking, and is the supernatural element of the show being confirmed? Nothing like a sacrifice to forward your political career.

And finally, Nat’s been thrown into a van by a bunch of cult henchman bearing the creepy symbol found all around the cabin in the woods. That’s a lot of new threads to untangle.

But it might be a while until we get to the cannibalism.

“I know that there’s a certain amount of anticipation about the cannibalism amongst viewers,” said Lyle. “And we, first and foremost, want to make sure that—if we’re going to go there, and we’re going to go to such an extreme place—that we really earn it, and we earn our characters getting to that point and making that choice.”

Who is in the Yellowjackets season 2 cast?

We can expect to see most of the cast, both the younger and older counterparts, again. In addition to Lewis, Cypress, Lynskey, and Ricci, the gals playing them in the woods will have to stick around, which means Samantha Hanratty, Sophie Thatcher, Sophie Nelisse, and Jasmin Savoy Brown. It looks like Courtney Eaton will be furthering her reign as the Antler Queen, and Liv Hewson is becoming one of her followers, so we should see them, too. Though Ella Purnell’s character is frozen, she has appeared to Shauna in the future, so it’s possible we’ll see her again—perhaps in the strange purgatory we see in Jackie’s final moments?

As for new cast members, Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under) is joining the cast as grown Van—which means Van lives!

Obi-Wan Kenobi star Simone Kessell has also been cast as grown-up Lottie, which confirms that our antler queen also survives into adulthood. (Though the finale also hinted at that.)

Have any Yellowjackets fan theories been confirmed?

Viewers have had a lot of fun conjecturing about what exactly would be happening from episode to episode, and there were plenty of unanswered questions after the season 1 finale. The show is allegedly going to be five seasons long, so we probably still won’t have all our answers in season 2, but actress Christina Ricci officially denied one of the most persistent fan theories: that the team ate Shauna’s baby out in the woods.

In an interview with Jimmy Fallon, Ricci says that she asked the writers, “‘We don’t eat Shauna’s baby, do we?’ They said no.”

Phew!

Unfortunately for fans of actress Ella Purnell, she denied that Jackie is actually alive despite viewers seeing she froze to death in the last episode. She also insisted that young Misty had nothing to do with the plane crash, even if she was largely responsible for how long it took the team to be found.

So, what is a girl to do? To wear? To manage through it all? She updates her plus size wear to work essentials.

Currently, Mother Nature cares nothing about what the weatherman said and will promptly change things up in a heartbeat. Seriously, the mornings can require a full coat and scarf and by lunch, you wish you had a decent pedicure, because you soooo badly want to throw on some sandals, to feel a slight breeze.

Now here is what we know, it doesn’t have to be this way. So, instead of reaching in the back of your closet and settling for last week’s same-old looks, why not reach for that new? That updated version of a power suit. That bold hued top?

Listen, we’ve gathered up 10 plus size wear to work essentials that you need to add to your closet that will have you dressed for success… and listen, a few are even under $100!

10 Must-Have Plus Size Wear to Work Essentials

Now, before we begin, there are a few things to know and remember… We have chosen a few of these looks for how fashion forward they are. If your office or your personal style does not fit our picks, no worries! These key items are still relevant and core to building up your plus size wear to work essentials.

1. The Power Suit

It was like all of the brands who do plus size fashion realized (at the same time) that they have been forgetting the plus size professional.

But thanks to the demand and this realization, we now have a few more plus size suiting options to play in, with varied ways to make this look all yours. One thing that is key about having a go to suit is the option to wear it together or break it apart to mix and match with the rest of your closet.

It is all about the versatility here, right?

2. The Updated Pencil Skirt

Pencil skirts have made their way into the fall season with a purpose. With and without coordinating jackets, presented in various textures, and lengths (hello midi), the pencil skirt is here for the fall to makes it’s own statement… trust us on this one!

You can match a plus size pencil skirt back to your blazer or layer a matching cardigan like the look above. Depending on your level of comfort, you can choose to have a longer length or fabrication.

One thing great about this silhouette is the ability for pencil skirts can be worn so many ways, all depending on your mood and feelings. Paired back with a plus size bodysuit, you can take this skirt from day to night, seamlessly.

3. The Not So Classic Button Down Shirt

If your job allows for more of a creative expression, or you run your own business and set your own rules, then have a little fun with your classic button down. If cold shoulder is not your style, then why not play with texture, sheer options, silhouettes and prints!

Basically, you have more options than the white classic button down. Thanks to the technological advances, we have more brands who are tackling the irritating gap that happens whenever we have a button down sitting on top of our chest area.

4. The Classic Moto Jacket

Sometimes, work calls for something with a little more attitude and a leather moto jacket gives us a few ways to make it our own. Layered over a sheath dress, paired with wide leg trousers, or a midi pencil skirt, you have a brand new uniform.

Oh, and we are no longer relegated to just black leather jacket options! If your style and work permits, grab your plus size leather jacket in a new color, that is NOT black. Add a pop of color with your jacket!

Live life on the wild side… just a little bit!

5. The Wide Leg Pant

Whether cropped or to the floor, high waisted wide leg trousers are going to be a silhouette that will be everywhere. Expect to see defined waistlines, cropped and full-length options, in varying fabrications… even in denim!

Find your polished trousers and have a little fun with this style that will seamlessly take you from work to play. You could pair these with a button up or your favorite plus size blazer, or even a leather moto jacket, it all depends on your style and needs.

This is a timeless wardrobe essential that will definitely get it money’s worth in wear!

6. The Perfect Badass Tote

We all need a great tote or carryall… but who said it has to be boring? Add a few metallic details, one that can transform from shoulder bag to a capacious tote, and you are ready to take on the day…

7. The Cozy All in One Cardigan

The tried and true cardigan is one that you will need to add to your plus size wear to work essentials. You know, one that you always keep in your car or at your desk? The cardigan that is a catch all for any and everything?

If you are going to have fun with your cardigan, get one that is inspired by the fun, graphic motifs that dominated the runways. The fun thing about cardigans? You can get one that doubles as a dress. A longer cardigan also pairs well with other items that work outside of work, too.

8. The Chic Little Work Dress

There are more than a few ways to update your classic black sheath. Why not opt for a few fun shades of navy? Who says that your chic work dress HAS to be Black? Sure, black is a great go-to, but what about other options?

This one, by Loud Bodies, goes up through a size 10X.

9. The Classic Flat

Yes, we all have a classic black pair of pumps (or we should… if not, a great work wear flat!) but what about a pair that add just a bit of interest, can be worn with a variety of options, and that are nice on our feet?

A block heel pump is where you will find a few more options to add a little style to your wear to work essentials! If you cannot do heels, then find you a great pair of fancy flats to add to your plus size wear to work essentials!

10. The Revamped Trench Coat

When it comes to pulling your plus size wear to work look all together, you definitely need to polish it all off with a great trench coat. Think fit, function, and fashion. Why not opt for a trench that makes a statement by itself.

Yes, you have your classic tans that make it all work, but why not a leather trench? Like this one in baby pink? You can also score this one in a bold yellow, if you are feeling a bit bold!


I guess you can say goodbye to the same old office pieces and kick your workwear up a notch! Put these key items on your gotta-have-it agenda. No more boring skirts and trousers for you! Thanks to how plus size designers and retailers have been innovating and listening… we have options!

Here’s a few places to shop for plus size wear to work essentials: Eloquii, Universal Standard, Ashley Stewart, Henning, and Pari Passu to get you started!

Which wear to work essential is your favorite?

I love the baby pink Cher Trench, it’s the perfect modern twist on an old classic. Serving up a conservative cut in a sweet hue.

How perfect would it be for those those desk-to-dinner dates?

But wait! My office is a bit more conservative….

Now, while you may not be comfortable with a few of these picks or they may not work in your work environment. What you do have is a reference point of where to look!

If you take a look at the websites of where we picked our faves from, you will see that there are quite a few more picks that you could add to your wardrobe and hope is not lost!

The Boring Item That Is Suddenly Selling Out Everywhere

#Boring #Item #Suddenly #Selling

Over the past few years, there has been a growing appreciation for classic items that are resistant to fickle trend cycles. There are a number of factors that have contributed to this shift, including the collective drive to create a more timeless, hard-wearing wardrobe in order to slow down our consumption combined with the pandemic, which means we are all wearing more practical and simpler outfits. Many of the cult buys for 2022 are actually items that have been hero purchases for decades and so will have a permanent place in your wardrobe. 

One item, in particular, that is selling out rapidly this month is striped sweaters. This is an item that will always be popular, and in particular, we love knits that combine cream and black and have an oversized fit. Celine is partly responsible for making us all fall in love with striped knits again thanks to its now cult sweater, which has wide sleeves, a collar, and a fine stripe. Unsurprisingly, this sweater, which has been adored by fashion circles, has created a huge demand for striped knits with collars. High-street brands such as Mango, H&M, and Zara all have their own version of a collared or zip-front striped sweater, making this one of the most popular buys this season. 

Keep scrolling for ideas for how to wear a striped sweater and shop our edit of the best for all budgets.
