About 13 Reasons Why Season 3:

13 Reasons Why was renewed on June 6, 2019 and show runner Brian Yorkey will return as the show’s show runner. “I always think there’s more story to tell, but I think that depends on viewers and everyone’s reaction to it and whether it’s important to keep telling the story,” he explained.
“If there is a future for the show, to me, it’s about these characters, and not necessarily a new set of reasons or a new set of tapes. Someone else might do that, but that’s not my job to do that.”
Season 1 of 13 Reasons Why hit Netflix on March 31, 2017 and season two arrived on May 18, 2018, 1 year after it was officially confirmed by Netflix.
A teaser video that accompanied the third season confirmed that it would arrive in 2019, with no specific release date, so it is estimated a May 2019 may be the earliest release date.
The cast is expected to reprise the likes of Dylan Minnette (Clay Jensen), Christian Navarro (Tony Padilla), Brandon Flynn (Justin Foley), Justin Prentice (Bryce Walker) and Alisha Boe (Jessica Davis).
There is also a possibility that Katherine Langford will back have Hannah Baker. “There’s a whole life that Hannah had, and there’s more we can learn about her. Overall, learning more about her is more important to the entire narrative,” Dylan Minnette explained.

Yorkey is not ruling out a return for Hannah either. But he has hinted she will not play a major role. “The loss of Hannah will continue to be the inciting traumatic event for this group of kids and parents. It will always be part of the story,” he explained.
“But I don’t see a tremendous continued presence for Hannah because I think we needed her to finish telling everyone else’s side of her story and we needed her so that Clay could get to a point of saying, ‘I love you and I let you go’. If the story does continue, and certainly there is lots more to know about a lot of these characters, then the spotlight focus on Hannah Baker is probably done.”
Langford appears to have put the show behind her. “Even though she may not be part of another season, I think that her presence and the importance of her and her story will always matter and will always be there,” she added.
And to make the goodbye even more official, Langford shared a touching Instagram post and wrote: “‘Hannah…I love you…and I let you go’ Those are the words I was able to say six months ago, and now can finally share with you,” she explained.
How did Season 2 of 13 Reasons Why end?

Season 2 ended in a controversial fashion as Tyler Down was brutally and sexually assaulted by Montgomery de La Cruz and a few of his fellow jocks. This led to him bring an assault rifle to seek revenge against his bullies, but Clay was able to talk him out of it and get Tyler to hand him his gun, with the season ending as Clay is holding the gun as police arrive on the scene.
“We had a character who was obviously severely bullied, suffering from social isolation, and was thinking of making a very tragic choice in addressing those feelings for himself,” Yorkey explained of the ending.
“I think you’ll see in the balance of the episodes that it’s very much about trying to understand Tyler’s character and how a troubled young man might be driven to consider this very difficult choice.”
The trial ended with Bryce only receiving three months probation after sexually assaulting both Hannah and Jessica.
“I always knew Bryce was going to get off easy because this show is kind of a reflection of reality and reality sucks sometimes,” Prentice explained. “We see it with the Brock Turner case. This is very much kind of a mirror of that.”
