Last year, Netflix announced that the hit show “13 Reasons Why” would be returning for a second season. This month, the streaming giant announced that the Netflix original will be returning for season 2 on Friday, May 18. The show instantly became a success during its premiere season and was the second most-tweeted-about TV show of 2017. The show also finished as the top-trending show on Google following its debut season. “13 Reasons Why” is based on the 2007 novel Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher.
Netflix announced the season 2 premiere date along with a one minute and thirty-seven second trailer.
The trailer, which doesn’t reveal much about what we can expect in season 2, features Polaroids above the heads of the cast members.
Entertainment Weekly had some information about the new episodes:
“When people intimate that Jessica’s story is done, I find that a horrific thought because Jessica is just beginning the process of recovering from her rape, and we have a rapist who has not in any way been brought to justice. To leave those two things hanging out there in the world would be upsetting. I want to see how that at least starts to play out and 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.”
It has also been reported that season 2 will take palce a few months after the events of the season one finale.
