Showtime stoked fans’ excitement for season two of its Emmy-winning thriller Yellowjackets with a spooky SXSW activation held at Fair Market over the weekend.

Season one explored a plane crash in 1996 that stranded a high school girls soccer team in the wilderness for nearly two (pretty gnarly) years. The Camp Yellowjackets experience nodded at show plot points with a mushroom tea, 90s playlist, friendship bracelets, and a “Definitely not people” meat carving station with steak and mushroom bites subbing in for the show's more cannibilistic tendencies.

Season two of Yellowjackets premieres March 26 on Showtime.
