Young queer love bloomed in the final season of this Netflix series.


For five seasons, Netflix’s Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous has quietly been the best thing in the franchise since the first film.

The series follows group of teenagers who find themselves abandoned on Isla Nublar after its evacuated following the events of the first Jurassic World film.

The final season was released on the streamer today and it featured plenty of endings for the stranded campers and one especially happy ending for its two queer leads.

Spoilers for Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous season five below. 

Yaz and Sammy

Since the first episode of the series, Yaz and Sammy have been the odd couple on the show. Initially, Yaz (who’s voiced by out actor Kausar Mohammed) was the loner in the group. A professional runner, she had put up walls to shut everyone out so that she could focus on her training. Sammy (Raini Rodriguez), on the other hand, has been a loquacious Texas farm girl committed to opening Yaz up.

Throughout the show, the two forged a powerful friendship which began to evolve into something more. In the final episodes, the two finally opened up about their feelings for one another and it was all queer joy — well, queer joy plus a few impromptu dinosaur chases and near-death experiences. What else would you expect on Isla Nublar?

Yaz and Sammy

Late in the season, Yaz finally gets her nerve up to confess her feelings to Sammy — who eventually, after said dino attack, reciprocates her feelings. In the final episode, after the climactic ending, a time jump sees the friends reuniting on video chat. Yaz and Sammy are still together and spending time at Sammy’s family’s ranch in Texas while Yaz is looking into colleges.

It’s sweet and an unapologetically queer way to cap off the series and continues Netflix’s legacy of queer representation in its animated content, adding Camp Cretaceous to the growing list of LGBTQ+ inclusive offerings on the streamer including She-Ra and The Princesses of Power, Dead End: Paranormal Park, and Kipo and The Age of Wonderbeasts.

Season Five of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous is streaming now on Netflix.
