Yellowjackets returned in 2023 for its hotly anticipated second season on Showtime. While the show has recently been unavailable entirely on Netflix, we’ve learned the streamer has acquired the license to the show in select Latin American countries.
One of the biggest Showtime series in years, the show comes from Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson and is about a high school soccer team that is now living in the remote Canadian wilderness following a plane crash.
Yellowjackets boasts a huge including Melanie Lynskey, Christina Ricci, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Sarah Desjardins, Ella Purnell, Juliette Lewis, and Sophie Nélisse to name but a few.
The show has a long life ahead of it since it’s recently been renewed for a third season.

Why Yellowjackets isn’t streaming on Netflix Elsewhere
As you may have guessed, the show isn’t produced by Netflix; for the most part, it is locked to Showtime and Paramount+.
Its addition to Paramount+ came as the Showtime lineup was merged with the streamer, and most separate Showtime apps were discontinued.
So unless you’re in the countries outlined above, the show is currently locked to Paramount+.
However, there is two quick exception,s with those being the United Kingdom and Canada. In the UK, the show was sold to Sky Atlantic and is streaming on Sky’s Now service while in Canada, the show was sold to Crave.
Shows and Movies on Netflix like Yellowjackets
Do you want to watch something similar on Netflix with the same hallmarks as Yellowjackets? Here are some of our top suggestions:
- The Decline (2020) – This Canadian feature film has a remarkably similar plot to Yellowjackets in that it’s about a remote training camp that sees an accident occur and leaves a group of survivalists bitterly divided and in a brutal fight. It’s the top suggested title when you type in Yellowjackets, so it definitely fits the bill.
- Keep Breathing (Limited Series) – Again, another one with a similar plot. About a small plane crash in the Canadian wilderness and follows a lone survivor battling the elements.
- Pieces of Her (Season 1) – For more mystery, you can’t do much worse than this series starring Toni Collette.
- The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (Multiple Seasons) – If you love the teen-horror mystery elements of Yellowjackets, there’s perhaps no better show that fits the requirements than this Archie Comics adaptation at Netflix.
- Narcos / Narcos: Mexico (Multiple Seasons) – Finally, we recommend these two shows given Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson
(the two co-creators of Yellowjackets) worked as a co-producer, writer, and consulting producers on this Netflix Original series.
