13 Reasons Why…. and a Second Season

By Ashley Lenahan on May 16, 2017

The renewal of the Netflix original series 13 Reasons Why for a second season was announced earlier this week. The series, whose executive producer is Hollywood starlet Selena Gomez, serves as a screen adaptation of the young adult novel of the same title written by Jay Asher.

The story centers on the experiences of Hannah Baker, a high school student that commits suicide and leaves behind cassette tapes to recount the specific incidents and individuals that prompted her death. The series provides an engaging yet graphic depiction of events to highlight the significance of serious topics, like suicide and rape.

The first season of the series concluded at the same point in the story as the novel. Therefore, the announcement that the supposed miniseries would be renewed for a second season generated surprise among fans. As the intended story of Hannah Baker has already been told, an obvious question can be drawn: What should fans expect from the show’s second season?

As explained at Forbes.com, Netflix recently released plot details from the second season of 13 Reasons Why to the public to inform fans of what to anticipate from the episodes to come. The entertainment company divulged the information in a bizarre fashion as it posted what appeared to be a phone note of plot details listed in bullet points to Twitter.

The bullet points mention the key plot elements to expect from future storylines, including the possibility of a trial in which Bryce faces the consequences of his actions and Jessica deals with the aftermath of her rape. The post also reveals that while there is more to be told about Hannah’s story, alternate perspectives will be incorporated into the second season as well.

The source Mirror.com discloses further aspects of the show’s second season. It reveals that while the episodes of the series will still feature a voice over, the narrator will no longer be Hannah. The source also states that Hannah’s signature tapes will not be included in the upcoming season as the show will instead shift to incorporate a separate dated piece of technology. However, the specific device that will be used has not yet been revealed.

The details released so far about the second season of 13 Reasons Why seem to have supplied eager fans with more questions than answers. Yet, the divulged plot information also serves to direct fans’ expectations for the show’s 2018 release.
