13 Reasons Why Season 2: Premiere Date and Time, Spoilers, and More!
13 Reasons Why will return to Netflix for a second season in 2018. Read about the spoilers and speculation surrounding 13 Reasons Why season 2 on Netflix.
Yes, There Will Be A 13 Reasons Why Season 2
13 Reasons Why on Netflix worked very well as a self-contained, one-season series, but, like many thought-provoking dramas, it left plenty of questions lingering in viewers' minds. Even after hearing all 13 parts of Hannah's (Katherine Langford) recorded suicide note, fans are just getting to know Hannah and her world. Although there has been some discussion to the effect that 13 Reasons Why season 2 would have a completely different cast and set of characters, it now appears that 13 Reasons Why season 2 will continue the story of the same characters who were introduced in season 1 and give more insights into their relationships with the late Hannah.
Why Fans Can't Wait For 13 Reasons Why Season 2
13 Reasons Why season 1 was a dramatic powerhouse, playing on audience's fears about bullying, rape, and suicide. It attracted some controversy about whether it was representing those subjects just for shock value or simply encouraging real-life dialogue about very real problems. The show's format, in which every episode centered around one part of Hannah's taped suicide note, certainly kept viewers in suspense. Meanwhile, the audience got to know and care about the other characters, such as Clay (Dylan Minnette) and Tony (Christian Navarro) and left them wondering about how these characters' lives would continue to play out long after they received Hannah's final message to them. The promotional trailer shows that 13 Reasons Why season 2 will be as suspenseful as the first season.
What We Know So Far About 13 Reasons Why Season 2
We know that 13 Reasons Why season 2 has finished filming and that it will become available for viewing on Netflix sometime in 2018. Netflix has not specified a debut date for the new season. Since the first season of 13 Reasons Why debuted on March 13, 2017, there has been some speculation that the second season will become available exactly on year later, on the same date in 2018. Of course, it could become available much sooner than that. Whenever Netflix adds new shows to its lineup, it adds an entire season of episodes. 13 Reasons Why season 2 promises to lend itself to binge watching as easily as other Netflix original series do. Therefore, if 13 Reasons Why season 2 does premiere on March 13, 2018, there is a very good chance that someone you know will have watched every episode by March 13, 2018.
What We Don't Know About 13 Reasons Why Season 2
The first season of 13 Reasons Why is based on a novel with a clear beginning and end, but 13 Reasons Why would not be the first fictional universe to grow bigger in TV or movie form than it did on the page. When the show first became popular, there was some talk of making it an anthology series, where every season would be a 13-part mystery with completely different characters. Now it is clear that 13 Reasons Why season 2 will be about the same characters as the first season. What is less clear is how the narrative arc will be structured, since it cannot be tied to Hannah's 13 tapes, like it was in the first season.
