Yellowjackets is also planned as a five-season series and is ‘on the track’ to achieve that goal. In an interview with EW, Ashley Lyle said, “The original plan was about five seasons, and we feel like we’re still on track for that. We don’t really see this as being more than a five-season show.”
So, we have so much more of Yellowjackets left to see (hurray!) and let’s keep our fingers crossed for that!
