We have the cast roundup for Yellowjackets an upcoming show from Showtime.
Yellowjackets follows a girls’ high school soccer team. In 1975, the Dearborn High Yellowjackets became the first team in state history to qualify for the Girls’ U.S. Soccer Championship Series in Manchester, NH. They never got the chance to compete.
Equal parts survival epic, horror story and pitch black coming of age, Yellowjackets tells the story of the (un)lucky survivors of a plane crash deep in the wilderness, chronicling their descent from a friendly, cooperative team to warring, cannibalistic clans. At the same time, it follows the lives they’ve attempted to piece back together nearly twenty-five years later, proving that the past is never really past and what began out in the wilderness is far from over.
The cast includes Melanie Lynskey, Juliette Lewis, Christina Ricci, Tawny Cypress, Ella Purnell, Sammi Hanratty, Sophie Thatcher, Sophie Nélisse, Steven Krueger and Jasmin Savoy Brown.
Yellowjackets is set to start filming early next month with production set to run through September. Ashley Lyle, Bart Nickerson and Jonathan Lisco have been set as showrunners for the project. Drew Comins and Jonathan Lisco are producing.
