Yellowjackets episode 1

We’re coming up to the Yellowjackets season 2 release date, and Paramount has made the horror series easy to catch up on. As of now, you can watch the first episode of the incredible drama series on YouTube, completely free.

Created by Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson, the show follows an all-girl sports team that get stranded in Canadian wilderness after a plane crash. All is not what it seems in the forest they land in, and gradually they succumb to some terrifying circumstances. Meanwhile, we follow their adult counter-parts, who all still carry the trauma of what happened in their younger days.

The first season of the thriller series is truly edge of your seat stuff, carried by the Yellowjackets cast, which includes Christina Ricci, Melanie Lynskey, and Joan Jett. Stacked, right?
