'13 Reasons Why' Has Been Renewed For A Third Season
In news that might surprise fans of 13 Reasons Why, the Netflix Original series has been renewed for a third season.
In a video posted onto YouTube, Netflix says the programme will return to our screens at some point next year. Netflix only dropped season two midway through last month, so they've wasted no time in keep the fanbase engaged.
The second chapter was a tumultuous one and people were very keen to see how the writers were going to keep the story going after the first instalment finished the 13 tapes of Hannah Baker's [Katherine Langford] confession.
It looked at the trial, where students gave emotional and confronting testimony to see whether Liberty High school was liable for Hannah's suicide and whether staff could have done anything to prevent her from killing herself.
The season introduced a few more characters, had Clay (Dylan Minnette) lose grip with reality and saw hallucinations of Hannah, Bryce (Justin Prentice) and Justin (Brandon Flynn) were sentenced in a separate trial for raping Jessica (Alisha Boe) and Tyler (Devin Druid) was about to commit a mass shooting at his school dance.
The last we see of the 13 Reasons Why gang is Clay, Justin and Jessica standing outside the school, with police sirens incoming with Dylan's character holding the assault rife that Tyler was going to use in his attack.
So it was a semi-cliff hang that Netflix left us in.
Will Clay be arrested for conspiracy to commit mass murder? Is there anything else that Tony (Christian Navarro) knows that we don't? What happens to Tyler after he's sexually assault? Will the polaroid photos reveal anything more?

There was a mixed reaction to the news on social media, with some people saying two seasons was more than enough for the show, while others feel the story isn't fully wrapped up yet.
Doubt had been cast one whether there was even going to be a season three, with executive Amy Powell previously telling The Hollywood Reporter: "It's up to [showrunner Brian Yorkey].
"We're not going to pressure him to create more seasons if he doesn't feel they are there, but he is already starting to think about what a season three could be.
"Brian was reticent to come back for a second season until he could crack it."
Well, it looks like he's cracked it because we can expect the show to come back in the next 12 to 18 months.
