During a recent interview with Digital Spy, Yellowjackets’ costume designer Amy Parris stated the season two finale finally sees the surviving teammates become “depraved,” “desperate,” “smelly” and “gross.”
When I first watched season one, I thought, well they definitely wanted to give season two somewhere to go you know, and to get even dirtier. Up until I think seven and eight, the characters are still looking relatively clean-ish. I mean they’re dirty, but you’ll really see in nine, they just get like roughed up and they really are depraved and sad and desperate.
So it really starts kind of mellow and minor and goes a little crazy by the end, just so you could see the progression of how dirty and messy and gross and smelly they’d be at this point.
