Yellowjackets premiered earlier this year to critical acclaim and instantly became a huge trending topic and “watercooler“ type of show. It was event viewing as it aired weekly on Showtime. Plus, the cast is almost entirely women, and women in their late 40s and 50s, which is awesome. Several of the actresses, like Juliette Lewis, Melanie Lynskey, and Christina Ricci, were also known for being iconic '90s stars. It generated tons of fan theories and a second season is on the way!

What emotion defined this fandom this year?

Stress! But in a good way. There are so many crazy mysteries still to unfold in Yellowjackets, and the season finale posed more exciting questions and jaw-dropping moments. The show's subreddit is buzzing with the kind of theories and conversation that good television drives.
