Yellowjackets season 3 release date speculation

Mid to late 2024 seems more feasible at this point for Yellowjackets season 3 to release. We expected early 2024, though that would’ve been optimistic even before the 2023 Writers Strike. But we’ll keep you updated.

As of June 2023, no premiere window for Yellowjackets season 3 has been revealed. We do know it’s happening, since it was confirmed back in December 2022.

What will Yellowjackets season 3 be about?

The main thread of Yellowjackets season 3 will be the mystery surrounding the Antler Queen, and how the girls survive without their cabin. At the end of season 2, we saw Coach Ben burn down the shack they’ve all been calling home.

This was after he witnessed them resorting to cannibalism. He found where Javi had been surviving and decided to live there himself, leaving the Yellowjackets to their own cultist devices.

In the present day, the adult cast is still trying to figure out the Antler Queen’s desires. At the end of season 2, Natalie sacrifices herself as a tribute to the strange entity, to everyone’s heartbreak. We’ll have the ramifications of that, as well as what comes next.
