Because yellow jackets is not streaming on netflix

As a result, the show is available exclusively on Showtime directly or through channels available on Prime Video or The Roku Channel.

Shows and movies on Netflix like yellow jackets
Do you want to see something similar on Netflix with the same hallmarks as yellow jackets? Here are some of our top suggestions:
- The reduction (2020) – This Canadian feature film has a remarkably similar plot to Yellowjackets in that it is about a remote training camp where an accident occurs, leaving a group of survivors bitterly divided and in a brutal fight. It is the most suggested title when you write yellow jackets, so it definitely fits the bill.
- Keep breathing (Limited Series) – Again, another with a similar plot. About a small plane crash in the Canadian wilderness and follows a lone survivor battling the elements.
- Pieces of Her (Season 1) – For more mystery, nothing worse than this series starring Toni Collette.
- Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (several seasons) – If you love the teen horror mystery elements of Yellow Jackets, there is perhaps no better show to fit the bill than this Archie Comics adaptation on Netflix.
- Narcos / Narcos: Mexico (various seasons) – Finally, we recommend these two programs given by Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson
(the two co-creators of yellow jackets) worked as a co-producer, writer, and consulting producer on this Netflix original series.
