Showtime Orders Survival Drama ‘Yellowjackets’

Series to Debut in 2021

Showtime has given a series order to the survival drama “Yellowjackets,” which is described as the “saga of a team of wildly talented high school girls soccer players who become the (un)lucky survivors of a plane crash deep in the remote northern wilderness.” The logline: “Yellowjackets,” created by Ashley Nye and Bart Nickerson (“Narcos”), chronicles their descent from a complicated but thriving team to savage clans, while also tracking the lives they’ve attempted to piece back together nearly 25 years later, proving that the past is never really past and what began out in the wilderness is far from over.

The series stars Melanie Lynskey (“Castle Rock”), Juliette Lewis (“Camping”), Ella Purnell (“Sweetbitter”), Sammi Hanratty (“Shameless”), Sophie Thatcher (“Prospect”), Sophie Nélisse (“The Book Thief”), Steven Krueger (“The Originals”) and Jasmin Savoy Brown (“The Leftovers”
