13 Reasons Why season 2: Everything you need to know

It’s coming BAAAACK

13 Reasons Why is the TV show we, the entire heat office, and pretty much the whole world haven’t been able to shut up about in the last few months – and for good reason.

The Netflix show has been a massive hit with viewers, and has opened up a huge conversation on the subjects of suicide, mental health and sexual assault.

It was recently revealed that the show will be renewed for a second season – producer Selena Gomez wrote on Instagram: “Their story isn’t over. Season 2 of #13ReasonsWhy is coming.”

But when is it out? Who will star in it? WHAT ON EARTH WILL IT BE ABOUT? Let’s find out.

When is 13 Reasons Why season 2 out?

The release date has yet to be announced, but Netflix shows traditionally take around 12 months to write and film – so some have predicted that it will be back in Spring 2018.

What will happen in 13 Reasons Why season 2?

In short, nobody seems to be sure – but the storyline has been predicted to take place a couple of months after the end of the first season.

The writer of the series, Brian Yorkey, also hinted toward what sort of storyline we can expect.

He told the Hollywood Reporter: "Hannah's story is still very much not finished,"

"She's an integral part of whatever the next chapter of the story is, and she's very much still at the centre of it."

The writer of the book that the show is based on, Jay Asher, never wrote a sequel - but he has spoken animatedly about wanting a new series.

He told Entertainment Weekly: “I’m curious as well. What happens to Clay? How do people react to what Alex did at the very end? What’s going to happen to Mr. Porter?

“I’d thought of a sequel at some point. I’d brainstormed it, but decided I wasn’t going to write it. So I’d love to see it.”

Who will be in 13 Reasons Why season 2?

It hasn’t been confirmed who of the previous cast have been confirmed for the show, but it’s looking like most of the main characters probably will be involved. Dylan Minette, who plays Clay, told Entertainment weekly: “I honestly did not realise how much was going to be left open at the end.”

“I think that there’s potential to know more about these characters and I think that there are good stories to be told. I also feel like if that was the ending, it’s also a beautiful way to end it.

“I think that [writer] Brian [Yorkey] and these writers could tell some pretty amazing stories about it.

“Whatever they write, I’m in.”

More specifically, will Hannah Baker be in 13 Reasons Why seaons 2??

It’s looking like she will be! Show creator told the Hollywood Reporter: "Hannah's story is still very much not finished,"

"She's an integral part of whatever the next chapter of the story is, and she's very much still at the centre of it."

What will happen to Bryce in Season 2?

Season 1 ended with Jessica telling her dad she’d been raped, and Brian Yorkey (and literally everyone else) is keen to see Bryce get his comeuppance.

"I want to do Jessica’s story the deserved justice of following her as she goes back to school, as she tries to begin to recover from what happened to her, because it’s something that millions of young women go through. And also [I want to] see somebody punch Bryce in the face."
