“The Yellow Vests” adds Elijah Wood as a citizen detective in season 2

It is Ice storm gathering in Yellow jackets Season 2!

Elijah Wood (Lord of the Rings, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency) is involved in a season-long guest arc on the Showtime drama, reuniting him with Christina Ricci — and it sounds like their characters will be sharing quite a bit of screen time. Wood will play Walter, a dedicated Citizen Detective who will challenge Misty in ways she won’t see.

Wood has also worked with Melanie Lynskey, including on I no longer feel at home in this world and Over the garden wall. “Honestly, it’s so crazy how every casting news brings more joy?? Now my dear friend @elijahwood is on the show?? The person I had the happiest time of my life with working on I Don’t Feel At Home In This World Anymore??!! My heart!!” she wrote in response to the casting Twitter. “I love you and I can’t wait to join the party!” he wrote in response.

This news comes after it was announced that Lauren Ambrose and Simone Kessel have joined the cast as series regulars as the grown-up versions of Van and Lottie. Meanwhile, Liv Hewson and Courtney Eaton, who play the teenage versions of these characters, have been upped from reruns in Season 1. Production on Season 2 begins later in August in Vancouver.

Created by Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson, Yellow jackets follows a high school football team after a plane crash as they survive in the desert and 25 years later. Today’s timeline also stars Juliette Lewis and Tony Cypress. Season 1 also starred Ella Purnell, Samantha Hanratty, Sophie Thatcher, Jasmine Savoy Brown, Sophie Nellis, Steven Kruger and Warren Cole.

Yellow jackets is executive produced by Lyle, Nickerson and fellow showrunner Jonathan Lisko. Karine Kusama also executive produced and directed the pilot. Creative Engine’s Drew Comins also serves as an executive producer.
