To celebrate the release of the second season of Yellowjackets, which is currently streaming on Paramount+, we had the pleasure of chatting to one of its stars, the incredible Melanie Lynskey to find out more.

For Season Two, two months have passed since Shauna gave Jackie the cold shoulder— to disastrous results. In the face of their deepening hunger and fear, the tension among our Yellowjackets has only grown worse. The harsh conditions of winter are intensifying by the day, and the psyches of our survivors are deteriorating just as fast. Threatened by the darkness of the wilderness— and the haunting memories of it in the present— our former state champs will be forced to make impossible decisions. As they confront the horrible truth of what survival entails, the real nightmare for each of them will be to figure out who they are— and what they are willing to sacrifice in order to stay alive.

Chatting with Lynskey, we talk about the show’s success and get a sense of its impact across the world, her initial draw to the character she plays and why it was different to anything else she had been part of, the incredible ensemble surrounding her, fan impact and social media impact, how she sees the series going from here and much, much more.
