At some point, nearly every member of an ardent fanbase dreams that they’ll get more of their favorite show sooner than expected. The idea that there may be a secret episode or an extra bit of footage just waiting to be released is a tempting one. But, in most cases, a movie is a movie, and a season of TV is a season of TV. But Yellowjackets, Showtime’s latest hit about a team of teens surviving in a desolate wilderness (and also magic, cannibalism, and trauma), has broken that mold. Yes, the rumors, this time, are true. Yellowjackets season two does have an episode 10. An extra, secret, bonus episode of Yellowjackets will air sometime soon, but probably closer to season three than season two.
Noooo. Go to bed! Get some rest! There will be a bonus episode between seasons, but I love you guys and I don’t want y’all to lose sleep thinking it’s tonight.

Co-creator of Yellowjackets, Ashley Lyle, took to Twitter to reveal the bonus episode of season two was coming. Lyle did not want fans staying up all night waiting for the release of a secret episode that wouldn’t air. But it turns out episode 10 of Yellowjackets season two simply wouldn’t be airing right now. Lyle noted, “There will be a bonus episode between seasons, but I love you guys and I don’t want y’all to lose sleep thinking it’s tonight.” And when asked for more details, Lyle added the secret season two episode was coming, “Closer to S3. I’m not being coy, there’s a strike and things are complicated!”
Now we must all wait and see when we will get more of the show. Fans are already speculating wildly about what the bonus episode of Yellowjackets could include. Some wonder if Yellowjackets episode 10 will just be a full musical dream sequence. And we would not feel mad at that. In the meanwhile, season one and season two of Yellowjackets stream on Showtime or Paramount+ with Showtime.
