The Yellowjackets is a comedy-drama that follows two sisters who are polar opposites. One sister, Kristen, is a high school teacher and the other sister, Nicole, has just been released from prison after being wrongfully convicted of kidnapping. They struggle to find their footing in one another’s lives and we watch as they learn how to trust each other again.

The trailer of Yellowjackets:
Showtime is yet to release the official trailer for ‘Yellowjackets.
The plot of Yellowjackets:
what that plot fails to mention is just how quickly the surviving group of Yellowjackets teammates devolves into what appears to be a semi-feral, near-tribal society as means of surviving.
This particular element, which seems reminiscent of “Lord of the Flies” (a reference point for the show), is teased in the trailer for “Yellowjackets.” At one point, we see a shot of at least three teenagers wearing huge, furry masks, animal skins, and animal horns.
It’s unclear what’s going on, but it teases just how far the survival portion of the “Yellowjackets” story will tip into madness. We also have no idea how each of the adult characters relates to one another more than two decades after the crash, nor do we have information about how they choose to live their lives after the crash.
