In the upcoming Yellowjackets Season 2, Lauren Ambrose will portray adult Van, and she has talked about working alongside Liv Hewson, who will play her younger counterpart.

Yellowjackets Season 2: Lauren Ambrose Praises Liv Hewson

The actress acknowledged that the process is still in progress in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, but she gave Hewson credit for her portrayal in Season 1.

"I mean, it's all happening right now. It's a process that is happening as we speak,” she told ET. “And Liv created a beautiful character that wasn't even necessarily meant to stick around. And because of Liv's very cool, beautiful performance, I get to be part of it now, too."

The Showtime series Yellowjackets made its debut in 2021 and depicts the aftermath of an aircraft disaster in 1996 that left a group of young soccer players on their way to the national championships stranded in the wilderness for more than a year.

The show cuts back and forth between their numerous attempts to stay together and the lives of those who survived in the present to highlight lingering tensions and ostensibly paranormal events.

As the adult versions of their individual roles, Ambrose is joined by returning actresses Melanie Lynskey, Tawny Cypress, Christina Ricci, and Juliette Lewis. Simone Kessell was officially announced as the choice to play modern-day Lottie, who is now the head of a cult, back in August.

Yellowjackets Season 2 has also added Elijah Wood, Nuha Jes Izman, and Jason Ritter.

While it is unknown what Van has been up to in the years since the plane crash, Ambrose will be a series regular, so when the program returns, viewers should find out where she stands and how she has been changed.

Yellowjackets Season 2 Update

Yellowjackets has already been renewed for Season 2, and given how well the show has done thus far (in terms of ratings and Emmy Award nominations), it will probably continue to succeed.

Van and Taissa's bond developed as viewers watched, and the Season 1 conclusion included her character taking part in Lottie's ritualistic activities. The primary survivors of the group also attended their high school reunion in the previous episode, during which Natalie was abducted, and Taissa's basement revealed unsettling clues about earlier occurrences.

Viewers have hoped for an adult Van, and Ambrose's comments on working with Hewson hint that the two versions will be similar. Those interested in learning more about Van and other Yellowjackets tale specifics should watch Season 2 when it premieres.
