If you, too, felt that the second season of "The Yellowheads," which recently came to an end, was shorter than its predecessor, it's not just a feeling, it's a fact: While the premiere season of the much-talked-about American psychological drama-mystery-horror series (which includes hard-to-watch scenes of cannibalism) consisted of ten episodes, the sequel spanned only nine episodes – that is, one episode less.

The good news: the missing episode isn't as lost as, say, a group of teen soccer players whose plane crashes into the snowy Canadian prairies of the nineties, and who have no way of communicating with the world because no one there has yet had a smartphone – like the plot of the series.
The creators of the series are actually preparing a "bonus episode", which will bridge between the second and third seasons of "The Yellows" - but will not be included in the official episode count of the third season. The slightly less good news: Due to the Hollywood writers' strike delaying work on the new season, it's unknown when that bonus episode will air — but it won't happen anytime soon.

This encouraging information came after Ashley Lyle, the show's executive creator alongside Bart Nickerson, tweeted on Friday — the day the tenth episode of season two was supposed to air in the U.S. — if there was one — that "The Yellowjackets" would indeed have a bonus episode between seasons, "but I don't want you to lose hours of sleep thinking it will happen today," she stressed.
Noooo. Go to bed! Get some rest! There will be a bonus episode between seasons, but I love you guys and I don't want y'all to lose sleep thinking it's tonight.

The news did move fans, but Lyle quickly calmed things down with another tweet, in which she clarified that the bonus episode would be closer to the third season, noting that "there is a strike going on and things are complicated!" Oh, the tension, the tension. At this rate, we'll start eating each other. Oh, wait...
