Season 2 of the Netflix Hit ’13 Reasons Why’ Is Definitely Happening

By  | 

Over the past few weeks, you may have heard a lot of talk about a show called ’13 Reasons Why.’  It’s about a teenage girl named Hannah Baker who commits suicide, but leaves a suicide note in the form of 13 cassette tapes—each of which hold the name of a person responsible for pushing her to the edge. You might have even binge-watched it like I did (because it’s so good, it’s hard to stop). And if you did see it, you were surely left with numerous questions. But don’t worry, because according to Netflix, season 2 of ’13 Reasons Why’ is definitely happening.

This past weekend, Selena Gomez (who actually helped produce the series, and also contributed music to its soundtrack) posted a teaser trailer to the second season of the Netflix original to her Instagram page. The video doesn’t exactly give us too much to go on. It’s basically a few shots of various locations that were vital to Hannah’s story: her high school, the movie theater she and Clay worked at,  Bryce’s pool, Hannah’s parent’s drug store. At the end, we see the numbers 13 and 2, and the little red play icon that’s indicative of the Netflix brand. Selena also commented with, “Their story isn’t over. Season 2 of #13ReasonsWhy is coming.”

According to Rolling Stone, season 2 is set to premiere in 2018. That’s quite a long time to wait for all us fans waiting to find out what happened to Alex, and what will happen to Bryce, and did Jessica finally come to terms with what happened, and every other question we’ve got running through our minds after that intense finale.

Rolling Stone also said that Netflix released a statement saying that the new season will pick up in the “aftermath of Hannah Baker’s death and the start of the characters’ complicated journeys toward healing and recovery.”

The series has certainly garnered its fair share of controversy. Some feel that the show glorified suicide, while others felt it portrayed problems of misogyny and rape culture in a perfectly accurate fashion.

Regardless, teens and plenty of adults have lots of opinions, and we’ll all be glad to discuss season 2 when it finally hits our devices.
