Where can I stream Yellowjackets seasons 1 and 2 in the UK?

We love our ’90s nostalgia around these parts, especially if it’s spiced up with a little cannibal cult content. That being the case, we’re pleased as punch that anthropophagic survival drama/mystery Yellowjackets has proven such a hit with audiences and critics alike, ensuring a long life beyond the third season currently in production. And if you’re not yet on board the Yellowjackets team bus, there’s still time to get caught up, seeing as season three has been pushed to 2025.

Where can I watch Yellowjackets seasons 1 and 2 in the UK?

Yellowjackets is streaming in Australia on Paramount+, and available to buy or rent from Google Play and the Apple TV Store. Season one is also streaming on NOW and Sky Go, and available to rent from Amazon Prime.

What is Yellowjackets about?

Created by Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson, Yellowjackets follows the members of a girls’ soccer team—the titular Yellowjackets—who survived a plane crash deep in the Canadian wilderness back in 1996, despite being left to their own devices, Lord of the Flies style, for 19 months.

But in the modern day, the now-grown Yellowjackets are faced with the very real possibility that someone is out to expose the awful things they did to survive in the wilderness (we mentioned cannibalism, yeah?). Mystery and murder ensue.

The cast of Yellowjackets

The adult former team members are played by Juliette Lewis, Melanie Lynskey, Tawny Cypress, Lauren Ambrose, and a show-stealing Christina Ricci, while their younger counterparts include Sophie Nélisse, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Sammi Hanratty, Sophie Thatcher, and Live Hewson. That’s a lot of ‘90s icons in one show, and they’re joined by another in season two, with Elijah Wood sliding into the ensemble as a “citizen detective” looking into the situation.

What are the critics saying about Yellowjackets?

Oh, they are loving it—the first season has an impressive 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, and season 2 only slipped six points. The series’ mix of the macabre and mystical, punctuated by some very black humour, has certainly struck a chord. Still, the squeamish should be wary—they don’t mess around when it comes to that whole people-eatin’ thing.
