Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson produced the American television drama series Yellowjackets. Sophie Nelisse, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Sophie Thatcher, and Sammi Hanratty lead an ensemble cast as four teens engaged in a plane catastrophe in 1996, while Melanie Lynskey, Tawny Cypress, Juliette Lewis, and Christina Ricci play their adult counterparts.
As exciting as it is when networks and streaming sites reveal premieres early, it has the unintended consequence of prolonging the wait for the next episode. It’s especially noticeable in the case of Yellowjackets, Showtime’s new psychological-horror series, which had a riveting first episode. It’s a little torturous to have to wait an extra week between the premiere and the 12th episode.
But it’ll be here soon, and in the meanwhile, we’ve got a sneak peek at what to expect from Yellowjackets episode 12, as well as all the details on the exact release date and time.
Yellowjackets Episode 10 Cast
- Shauna’s adult and adolescent forms are played by Melanie Lynskey and Sophie Nélisse, respectively. Shauna and Jackie were great friends in high school. She was accepted to Brown University because she was intelligent. She is concerned about others. Shauna is a frustrated stay-at-home parent with an adolescent daughter and an uncaring spouse as an adult. Because she tries to fit in, Lynskey’s character is unable to be herself.
- The adult and adolescent incarnations of Taissa are played by Tawny Cypress and Jasmin Savoy Brown, respectively. Taissa was obsessed with winning throughout high school. She broke her leg after she slide-tackled a teammate she thought wasn’t good enough for nationals. As an adult, she is campaigning for state senate in New Jersey while keeping her same-sex marriage and raising a socially challenged young son.
- Jackie, the squad captain of the Yellowjackets soccer team, is played by Ella Purnell. Jackie and Shauna were great friends in high school. Shauna had a relationship with Jackie’s boyfriend. Jackie strives to live her perfect life, which frequently puts others on the short end of the stick. Purnell claims that her heroine has trouble adjusting to her new surroundings in the forest because she is used to “social conventions and the hierarchy that exists in high school.”
- Natalie’s adult and adolescent forms are played by Juliette Lewis and Sophie Thatcher, respectively. Natalie was called a “burnout” in high school, used drugs, and was anti-social. She leaves rehab as an adult and promptly falls off the waggon.
- Misty’s adult and adolescent forms are played by Christina Ricci and Sammi Hanratty, respectively. Misty is the team’s student manager in high school. She gets bullied because she is thought to be sad and strange.
- Ben Scott, the assistant coach of the Yellowjackets soccer team, is played by Steven Krueger.
- Warren Kole and Jack Depew play adult and adolescent Jeff Sadecki, respectively.
Yellowjackets Episode 10 Release Date
The first episode is out early, but it hasn’t officially appeared on the cable channel yet, so we won’t get another “new” episode until November 21.
The following schedule is courtesy of Futon Critic; however, it is not guaranteed to be 100% accurate, and the airing schedule is subject to change. Even though it’s out now, I’m including the official premiere because it hasn’t “officially” premiered yet.
Because Showtime uploaded the first episode more than a week ahead of schedule, it’s possible that the cabler will opt to post future episodes ahead of their linear premiere, but it’s too early to tell. I wouldn’t be shocked if episodes for the holiday periods were added ahead of time so that folks who have plans could see them.
