The Showtime TV series Yellow Jackets has doubled its audience in its Season 2 debut week, attracting almost 4 million viewers on digital platforms.
After receiving acclaim for its first season on Showtime, Yellow Jackets returned to our screens recently for Season 2. They achieved a better debut than Season 1, breaking all records on Showtime.
A Story of Women’s Survival
"Yellowjackets" is a show about a group of high school girls whose plane crashed in an unknown place. All the characters are from the 1990s Yellowjackets, an all-female high school soccer squad.
One day, the team takes the route to join a significant, yet their aircraft crashes in a distant woodland. From this event on, the girls will try to survive and overcome their fear while dealing with harsh circumstances and scarce supplies.
This new masterpiece created by Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson alternates between the past. It depicts the girls’ battles to survive and retain their sanity and the present, when the former teammates, now adults, live with the dirty secrets of their past.
Karyn Kusama, who received the script of Yellow Jacket three years ago, declared to Vanity Fair that she; “ romanticizes this idea that we just are left to fend for ourselves as women, but what this show is positing is something about, well, what would that look like? And it may look as thorny and problematic as any clan fighting for survival.”
A Series of All Records
While the season 1 finale of the series gathered barely 1.3 million viewers, Yellow Jackets has had a fantastic first week of diffusion.
The series, created by Ashley Lyle, has had the best premiere week for the channel since the return of the serial killer TV series entitled Dexter: New Blood, which was released on all platforms in November 2021. And it doesn't stop there; the show is very famous on social media, with thousands of tweets per hour when an episode is released, gathering all fans and promoting it on social media.
