Lauren Ambrose was cast to play the adult version of Van in the second season of Yellow jackets.
The first season of the hit psychological drama series followed a group of women who survived a plane crash during their high school football days in the 1990s. After being stranded in the remote Canadian wilderness for 19 months, they turn into warring clans.
On Thursday (August 11), Showtime announced that Ambrose was the former Six feet underStar, intended to portray Van through her adult years.
The teenage Van is portrayed by Liv Hewson, who has been promoted to a series regular in the upcoming season.
Using time jumps after the 1996 plane crash and 25 years later, the show reveals what really happened between the group of survivors after they started their own cannibalistic society.
The news confirms fan theories that Van made it out alive.
Production for the second season is slated to begin later this month in Vancouver.
The series received seven nominations at this year’s Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Drama Series, two acting nominations for Melanie Lynskey (Shauna) and Christina Ricci (Misty), two nominations for screenplay, and nominations for direction and casting.
