Showtime has announced that Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under, Servant) will join the cast of Yellowjackets Season 2 as a series regular, playing the adult version of Van. Liv Hewson, who plays teenage Van, has also been promoted to series regular.
Yellowjackets centers on a New Jersey high school girls' soccer team in the '90s whose plane crashes in the remote northern wilderness. The series follows the girls in the immediate aftermath of the crash and 25 years later, as adults hiding a dark secret about what happened out there.
Ambrose's casting confirms for fans that Van makes it out of the wilderness alive, a fact that was uncertain at the end of Season 1.
Yellowjackets Season 1 is available to stream on Showtime.
