Take a look at the tense and wild-looking teaser trailer that Showtime has unveiled for Yellowjackets, an upcoming series starring Melanie Lynskey, Juliette Lewis, Christina Ricci and Tawny Cypress, among others.
The show, described as equal parts survival epic, psychological horror story and coming-of-age drama, tells the saga of a team of wildly talented high school girls soccer players who become the (un)lucky survivors of a plane crash deep in the remote northern wilderness. We follow their descent from a complicated but thriving team, to savage clans, while also tracking the lives they’ve attempted to piece back together nearly 25 years later, proving that the past is never really past and what began out in the wilderness is far from over.
The one-hour series hails from creators and executive producers by Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson (Narcos), with a large cast also includes Ella Purnell (Sweetbitter), Sammi Hanratty (Shameless), Sophie Thatcher (Prospect), Sophie Nélisse (The Book Thief), Steven Krueger (The Originals), Jasmin Savoy Brown (The Leftovers), Warren Kole (Shades of Blue), Peter Gadiot (Queen of the South), Keeya King (Van Helsing) and Alex Wyndham (Rome).
Yellowjackets will premiere on Showtime later in the year.
