Where To Watch ‘Yellowjackets’, The Show Everyone’s Talking About, In Australia

Part survival epic, part horror, full on thrills.

While for many of us, the thought of watching a Lord Of The Flies meets Now And Then psychological horror is enough to send shivers down our spines, the pop-culture enthusiasts amongst us will know we’re referring to the cult survival drama Yellowjackets.

It’s the show taking the world by storm, with its nuanced exploration of teenage cliques (that become literal clans) and exceptional casting, you’ll be putting this show straight to the top of your ‘much watch’ list quicker than you can grab your popcorn.

Because we know you’re curious, like us, we’ve rounded up below everything you need to know about Yellowjackets including where to watch the series in Australia.

What Is Yellowjackets About?

Yellowjackets follows a group of five friends and soccer teammates over two time periods—the late 90s and now—exploring how their actions as a teen impact their lives now. While this premise may seem overdone at first, it’s anything but.

In 1996, Shauna, Taissa, Jackie, Natalie and Misty were stranded in the Canadian wilderness after their plane crashed on the way to a national tournament. The girls are left to survive on their own for nineteen months.

The series chronicles the extreme lengths the girls went to to stay alive and the consequences of their actions as adults.

The show is dark, gripping and will have you hooked from the first episode. This isn’t light watching and we love every second of it.

Who Stars In Yellowjackets?

If the plot of Yellowjackets doesn’t have you convinced, then the iconic all star ensemble will.

The series stars some of our favourite 90s leading ladies, including Christina Ricci, Juliette Lewis, Melanie Lynskey and Tawny Cypress.

Newcomers including Sophie Nélisse (who you’ll recognise from The Book Thief), Ella Purnell, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Sophie Thatcher and Samantha Hanratty round out the show as the younger versions of the cast.

Where To Watch Yellowjackets In Australia?

Season one of Yellowjackets is available to stream in Australia on Paramount+.

If, like us, you’re planning on binge watching all ten episodes in one sitting then be sure to check out our round up of everything you can expect in Season 2.
