Yellowjackets: Season 1

A group of women are forced to confront the horrific survival they endured together decades ago in this trauma reunion drama series starring Melanie Lynskey (Togetherness), Tawny Cypress (The Blacklist), Christina Ricci and Oscar-nominee Juliette Lewis.

This equal parts survival epic, psychological horror story and coming-of-age drama tells the saga of a team of wildly talented high school girls soccer players who become the (un)lucky survivors of a plane crash deep in the remote northern wilderness. The series chronicles their descent from a complicated but thriving team to savage clans, while also tracking the lives they’ve attempted to piece back together nearly 25 years later.

Though its pace is somewhat... glacial than its trailers... indicated, there are moments where the tension is nigh unbearable.
