Fans need to know where to watch Yellowjackets now that the WHS girls' soccer team is making its return.

Shauna, Natalie, Misty and the rest of the Yellowjackets cast hop between the past—when they were mere teens left stranded in the Ontario woods following a plane crash—and the present day, wondering if the "darkness" they encountered in the wilderness will return for them as adults. And in Yellowjackets season 2, the situation has become even direr than before, if you can possibly imagine. One thing is for sure: viewers are in for a wild ride. 

"We have conversations about what could be too far, but it’s less about likability for the characters and more about the type of story," the show's co-creator Ashley Lyle told The Hollywood Reporter. "We never want to be shocking and salacious for the sheer joy of it."

The sophomore season, considered even more savage than Lord of the Flies, has been highly anticipated since the first ended back in January 2022. You're obviously not going to want to miss whatever it entails, so let's get down to the nitty-gritty how-to-watch details. 

Where to watch 'Yellowjackets' anywhere in the world:

Yellowjackets season 2 is not for the faint of heart, but needless to say, everyone's dying to tune in for the Emmy-nominated series. 

"There are still lots of questions about who survived, what happened out there. There will be some real surprises in terms of that and I think some characters you may not even have met yet," Showtime’s President of Entertainment Gary Levine told Deadline.

We're patiently waiting for the story to all come together in its next chapter. Here's how to tune in no matter where in the world you're set. 

How to watch 'Yellowjackets' in the US

The soccer stars will return to streaming services in all their grisly glory on Friday, March 24. Those with cable will be able to tune in for the Showtime premiere on Sunday, March 26 at 9pm ET.

Although we caught the debut Yellowjackets episodes on Hulu, those who intend to stream the new season need to switch over to Paramount+, as Paramount is merging its streaming service with Showtime. 

Paramount+ with the Showtime Bundle is $11.99 per month or $119.99 per year, and free trials are currently available. Use the code PICARD for a 30-day free trial (offer ends Sunday, April 30). 

Is Yellowjackets free on Amazon Prime?

Alas, even if you are an Amazon Prime member, you cannot watch the show for free on the service; you'll need to add Showtime for $10.99/month in order to get access.
