The debut season of Showtime’s tragic and disturbing yet, thrilling and highly addictive series, Yellowjackets returns this March (buzz-buzz).

What’s up with Lottie and her gang of heart worshippers? Is Taissa one of them? Is Lottie alive and is she responsible for the kidnapping of Natalie? What happened to Shauna’s baby? And who all survived? In a recent exclusive with EW one of the survivors was revealed. Yup, unfortunately they’ve spoiled the survival of Van who as an adult will be played by Lauren Ambrose. Now, we’re all spoiled. You’re welcome.
