Van is alive—and we've finally got the proof. 

On Dec. 22, Showtime released the first images of Lauren Ambrose as adult Van from the upcoming second season of Yellowjackets.

In the trio of photos, Ambrose sports some noticeable scarring on her face—no doubt the remnants from being mauled by a pack of wolves in season one. 

One image features a smiling Ambrose holding a couple of VHS cassettes, while another features her smiling directly into the camera while standing in back of a variety of toys and other keepsakes. 

In one image, however, she is seen looking worried while sitting on a couch and gazing at something in the distance. Come on, it's Yellowjackets—things aren't going to stay happy-go-lucky forever!

Ambrose plays the older version of Yellowjackets team member Vanessa Palmer (a.k.a.) Van, whose younger version was played by Liv Hewson in season one

In addition to Ambrose's casting, Hewson was also upgraded to a regular cast member for the highly-anticipated second season. Suffice to say, there's plenty more Van on the horizon.

Ambrose will be joined by a cast of fresh faces in season two, including co-star Melanie Lynskey's real-life husband Jason Ritter and Elijah Wood, who will be playing "Walter, a dedicated Citizen Detective," according to the network, "who will challenge Misty (Christina Ricci) in ways she won't see coming."

In addition, Simone Kessell will play the adult version of cult leader Lottie. Courtney Eaton, who played the younger version of Lottie in season one, has also been elevated to a regular cast member after appearing in a recurring role in the first installment.
