13 Reasons Why Season 3: What 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 can we expect from Season 3 of 13 Reasons Why?

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.

Has Netflix released a trailer for Season 3?

Now that season three is in post-production a trailer should be released soon. Alongside the trailer, the release date will likely be announced too.

When will season 3 of 13 Reasons Why be on Netflix?

The production and release dates of the previous seasons were as follows:

  • Season One wrapped up production in January 2017 and released March 31st, 2017.
  • Season Two finished its production in December 2017 but didn’t release until May 18th, 2018.

With production finished in February, we initially thought the series would be arriving in May or June.

We were expecting the show to release on Netflix in the Summer but with the July additions now out with no mention of 13 Reasons Why, we’re still not sure exactly when season 3 will be coming to Netflix.

Some rumors circulated in early July 2019 about the series coming to Netflix in October 2019, that’s not the case as the Tweet has been since taken.

Over on one of the international Twitter accounts however, they Tweeted out a release schedule and 13 Reasons Why was found present. You can see the series will launch after September when Disenchantment releases and around the same time as Criminal. Criminal is set for a broad fall 2019 release date which could mean between October and December 2019.

13 Reasons Why Release Schedule

A fan account on Twitter has claimed that the CCO of Netflix Ted Sarandos has stated that Season 3 will arrive in the third quarter of this year. We couldn’t find a source to back this up but it does fall into our own speculation that Season 3 will arrive this Summer.

Will Season 3 be the last season of 13 Reasons Why?

It has not been reported that season three will be the last season of the show. With the recent string of shows being canceled by Netflix, it’s not a stretch to suggest that 13 Reasons Why could face the ex after this season is over.

Taking into consideration how popular the show is, it is highly likely that the story will go on until of least season four. In fact, in recent weeks rumors have already begun about Netflix already renewed the show for season 4 although nothing has been confirmed.
