Yellowjackets, Showtime’s Emmy-nominated survival drama, has revealed another teenage cast member who survives to the present day.

Lauren Ambrose, an alum of Six Feet Under, has joined the cast of the breakout series from creators Bart Nickerson and Ashley Lyle. Lauren will play Van’s adult version, the 1990s-set teenage character by Liv Hewson. The premium cable network also revealed that Hewson had been promoted to series regular in Thursday’s announcement.

After the January freshman season finale opened the door for additional surviving members of the Yellowjackets team in the show’s present-day storyline, the casting arrived. In an interview with TV’s Top 5, Lyle and Nickerson said the adult version of Lottie would be among the new characters introduced in season two.

Adult Ali, the Yellowjacket whose leg Taissa broke in the pilot, will also be among those likely to return. “In terms of other survivors, we plant the flag that Lottie (Courtney Eaton) is lurking in the shadows and meeting her in the near future. Ideally, we will probably meet at least one other,” Lyle said.

Ambrose joins fellow Yellowjackets adult cast members, including Christina Ricci, Melanie Lynskey, Tawney Cypress, and Juliette Lewis. The 1990s-set soccer team counts stars including Ella Purnell, Hewson, Sophie Thatcher, Samantha Hanratty, Sophie Nelisse, and Brown. Lyle, Jonathan, and Nickerson Lisco serve as exec producers and showrunners.
