By now you’ve probably heard about Showtime’s latest genre-bending series, Yellowjackets, which premiered in November 2021. Showtime recently renewed it for a second season, and the debut season finale is on Sunday, January 16, 2022. Filled with 90s flashbacks, Yellowjackets follows a high school girls’ soccer team’s plane crash “in the remote northern wilderness. Twenty-five years later, they discover that what began in the wild is far from over.” We’ve put together a list of 7 recent/current shows like Yellowjackets to check out after season one comes to an end.

The Wilds (2020 – )
One of the most obvious comparisons is Amazon Prime’s The Wilds which debuted in 2020, and season 2 is on the way. “A group of teen girls from different backgrounds must fight for survival after a plane crash strands them on a deserted island. The castaways both clash and bond as they learn more about each other, the secrets they keep, and the traumas they’ve all endured. There’s just one twist to this thrilling Drama – Coming of Age… these girls did not end up on this island by accident.”

Cruel Summer (2021 – )
Freeform’s Cruel Summer also contains flashbacks to the 90s and lots of mystery. “In a small Texas town, popular teen Kate, is abducted. Seemingly unrelated, a girl named Jeanette goes from being a sweet, awkward outsider to the most popular girl in town, but by 1995 she has become the most-despised person in America.”
