10 TV shows to watch right now if you like Yellowjackets
Who would’ve guessed that a deeply funny, deeply disturbing show about a cannibalistic soccer team would surpass cult status to become one of prestige television’s most talked-about shows? And that's just part of what makes Yellowjackets’ cross-genre success such a blast to experience.
In the Showtime series, a high school girls’ soccer team whose plane crashes on the way to nationals in the late ‘90s are left stranded in the Canadian wilderness for 19 months. Based on the pilot alone, it's clear that they eventually resort to some sort of ritualistic cannibalism. (God forbid women have hobbies!) The series cuts back and forth between the ‘90s and present day, as the surviving adult Yellowjackets find themselves drawn back together by a series of mysterious threats.
But what if you’re looking for even more Yellowjackets-esque shows to sink your teeth into (pun very much intended) in the meantime? We’ve pulled together 10 great shows that evoke elements of the show, from plane crash mysteries to wellness cults and everything in between. Here’s what’s worth watching.
