13 Reasons Why Season 3: Everything We Know So Far

Season 3 of 13 Reasons Why will be coming to Netflix in 2019! The popular American drama has gone on to become one of the most popular shows on Netflix. With many anticipating its return, here’s everything we know so far on season 3 of 13 Reasons Why.

13 Reasons Why is a Netflix Original Drama Series that first released in 2017. For its season debut, it soon became one of the most controversial seasons of television this decade. With a hard-hitting approach towards suicide and sexual assault, it split the opinion of its audience in half. Season 2 of the drama didn’t hit as hard as its season one counterpart, but many fans still enjoyed nonetheless.

After teenager Hannah Langford commits suicide, it sets a chain of events in motion that will change the lives of those around her forever. 2 weeks after her death, fellow classmate Clay Jensen receives a mysterious box of pre-recorded tapes. On these tapes, are Hannah’s recordings of her 13 reasons why she committed suicide.


What to expect from season 3

The season finale ended with Clay successfully talking down Tyler from starting a school shooting. Tony arrives in time to drive Tyler away before the police arrive. Taking the rifle away from Tyler, Clay is left on the sidewalk with an assault rifle in hand as Jess and Justin ask what should they do now?

Season 2 left quite a few plot threads open for season 3. Firstly they’ll have to focus on the fallout of Tyler’s attempted shooting of the school. Tyler’s decision to shoot up the school, to begin with, stemmed from his sexual assault from Montgomery and his friends.

Justin now living with Clay, is still yet to kick his heroin addiction so this will greatly affect his relationship with both Clay and girlfriend Jessica. Having lied on Bryce’s behalf Chloe helped clear Bryce’s name. As she was also raped by Bryce she is now pregnant with his child. Will Chloe keep the child, and will she come forward to testify against him?

The evidence of all the rapes and sexual assaults were destroyed by Nina Jones. As Nina was also a victim it’s unknown why she destroyed the evidence. Now with all the evidence destroyed it will be harder to prove the sexual assaults of all the victims.

“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 as my journey on @13reasonswhy has officially come to an end…as most of you know, this was my first ever job and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to tell Hannah’s story so fully in season 1, and to be asked back for a season 2. Thankyou to @netflix @paramountpics @anoncontent , the incredible producers, creatives, cast and crew for making these last 2 years so special. And to all of you here – Thankyou for filling my life with love and light 🙏 This show will always be a special part of my life, and regardless of whether Hannah is there or not, I know that I will continue to strive to do work that is meaningful and has a positive impact – whether that be in film, music, or any other form of art. There is a lot coming up this next year, and I can’t wait to share it with you 💖 #hannahbaker
