Netflix is likely to keep the fans guessing before cryptically revealing the release date like they did with the second season.
It all happened in March 2017, that 'damned' show (Hannah Baker meme remember?) that shook us all when it premiered on Netflix. Adapted from the book of the same name by Jay Asher, 13 Reasons Why was the talk of the town when it released, causing a massive storm on social media. The show was primarily focusing on teenagers, especially Katherine Langford who starred as the troubled Hannah Baker, reports Screenrant.
She decides to take her own life, leaving behind a series of tapes about the people who drove her into taking that decision. It focused on rape, bullying, suicide and substance abuse among other serious problems faced by teenagers and that had prompted strong reactions from parents and some real discussions surrounding the portrayal of such topics.
The show starring Dylan Minnette, Katherine Langford, Alisha Boe, Justin Prentice, Brandon Flynn was an instant success for Netflix and it was, undoubtedly, followed by a second season, which also focused on another troubled teen. The season revolved around everything that took place after Hannah Baker's death and we got to know the story of an outcast teen Tyler.
Langford, an Australian actress became an overnight sensation following her debut season in 13 Reasons Why. "It was such a wonderful opportunity to tell her story so fully in season one, and I'm really glad to have been asked back and to have been a part of a second season. I don't know if I can comment on the third season. I don't know if there's going to be a third season," she told The Hollywood Reporter.
"This could have been Hannah's last chapter, but I guess we'll have to wait and officially see," Langford said about her potential future on 13 Reasons Why. Will she return for the third season? Although it is not still confirmed, however, fans believe she could have short cameo of sorts.
And that's not all. The second season focused on the sexual attack on Tyler, which later led him to attempt a school shooting. And to no one's surprise, even that season got into a lot of controversies for its subject but it was also a success. And now the series is officially renewed for a third season and we can't wait to know what's in store for us!
Although we know for a fact, 13 Reasons Why is back for a third season, the release dates for the series have not still been revealed. But going by the time period when the first season (March 2017) and the second season (May 2018) released, we can expect the third season to premiere either late May 2019 or early June 2019.
Considering the fact that filming for the third season had wrapped up in February, summer 2019 seems very likely to witness the controversial show making its comeback. The streaming platform is likely to keep the fans guessing before cryptically revealing the release date like they did with the second season.
The Netflix Original from Brian Yorkey will finally return so that we can figure out the cliffhanger of an ending in season 2, and seriously we can't wait any longer!
In an earlier interview with EW, showrunner Yorkley said, “Should we get a season 3, 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. 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.”
Now, it is only about time we wait and watch when Netflix officially reveals the release date. Until then, grab some popcorn and start binge-watching the first and second season because the third season is going to be here real soon!
