Elijah Wood

Yellowjackets is where Elijah Wood is going. Showtime reportedly revealed on Friday that the actor will appear in the upcoming second season of the Emmy-nominated drama Yellowjackets in a season-long guest-starring position as a guy named Walter, whose arc will significantly intersect with Misty (Ricci). This news was first reported by Entertainment Weekly. Other than a brief network blurb that claims Elijah Wood is “a committed Citizen Detective who will test Misty in ways she may not see coming,” not much is known about his personality.

Elijah Wood Will Guest Star On Yellowjackets Season 2

The second season of the Showtime drama series that has been nominated for an Emmy has cast the Lord of the Rings alum in a season-long guest role. The actor joins the program in the current plot as the third new face and the first who is not portraying an adult version of a previously existing character. The adult version of Courtney Eaton’s Lottie Matthews will be played by Simone Kessell (Obi-Wan Kenobi), while the adult Van will be played by Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under) (Liv Hewson in the 1990s storyline).

Among Elijah Wood’s filmography are The Toxic Avenger, the upcoming L.A. Rush, and the Lord of the Rings series. His television credits include Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency and Wilfred. Brillstein and CAA are his agents. Tawney Cypress, Juliette Lewis, Melanie Lynskey, and Elijah Wood also appear in the cast. Hewson, Ella Purnell, Samantha Hanratty, Sophie Thatcher, Jasmin Savoy Brown, and Sophie Nelisse are among the stars of the drama set in the 1990s. The sitcom was created by the husband-and-wife team of Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson, who also act as showrunners with Jonathan Lisco.

Production for season two is scheduled to start on August 30. There is no set time for returning.
