The show about a girl's soccer team from New Jersey surviving a plane crash and resorting to savage means to survive, quickly captured global attention. The SHOWTIME show, 'Yellowjackets' takes place in two different time periods; the 90s and present day.

Both timelines follow some of the survivors as they navigate the trauma of the crash,  cult-like activities, and cannibals.

One timeline shows the girls navigating the terrors of this possibly supernatural situation in the 90s right after the crash, and the other follows a few of the survivors as adults.

It became an immediate hit with both viewers and critics. Securing seven Emmy nominations earlier last summer in its freshman season, the smash hit is set to get even better when it returns to television screens.

The full trailer for the second season has finally dropped. Fans were freaking out on social media trying to figure out what happens next on the show. One of the most exciting parts of the minute and eleven second trailer included a GLIMPSE at a new character.

News of Cedar Rapids native Elijah Wood joining 'Yellowjackets' came out last summer. He is set to play a new character named Citizen Detective Walter.

While we don't know much about his character yet, we do know that he won't be series regular. According to Variety, "Wood will appear in a season long guest starring role as Walter, a dedicated Citizen Detective who will challenge Misty (Christina Ricci) in ways she won’t see coming."

Do I sense a possible romance between this guy and Christina Ricci's psychotic character? Maybe...

He is seen interacting with her character Misty in the trailer and says,

"Kidnapping, cults, death...your friendships are a little more complicated than most."

A whole slew of new characters are set to be on the second season of the award winning television program. Even fan favorite Van is set to have an adult counterpart in the present-day storyline.

The second season of 'Yellowjackets' will premiere on SHOWTIME on March 24th. You can currently stream the first season on SHOWTIME.
