Fourth And Final Season Of 13 Reasons Why Drops On Netflix Australia Today
The time has come to say goodbye to the cast of 13 Reasons Why.
The controversial and exploratory Netflix series is dropping its fourth and final season for people in Australia and New Zealand today (June 5).
Some have been shocked that the show got commissioned for a second season, let alone a fourth, considering some of the themes that were explored in the first. The dark drama had a look at teenage suicide (with one hell of a confronting scene in the finale), sexual assault, consent and bullying.
Based on the best-selling book of the same name by Jay Asher, the series first began by following high school student Clay Jenson (Dylan Minnette) as he tries to make sense of the suicide of his friend Hannah Baker (Katherine Langford).
Over the course of three seasons, the show has taken viewers into further murky waters and has even ventured into murder. We're serious when we say it's a wild ride.
But now we can see how it all comes to an end. Netflix has given us 10 one-hour long episodes to feast on and then that's it.
Along with the return of Minette's central protagonist, we'll also see Alisha Boe reprising her role as Jessica, Miles Heizer as Alex and Devin Druid as Tyler.

While the show has been hugely popular with its viewers over the course of the past three seasons, its sensitive themes have not come without some backlash.
Last year, Netflix announced it would be removing a controversial three-minute scene, which depicted the suicide of Hannah Baker (played by Katherine Langford) following the 'advice of medical experts'.
However, the show's creators defended the decision to include it, with writer Nic Sheff sharing an open letter with Vanity Fair, which read: "When it came time to discuss the portrayal of the protagonist's suicide in 13 Reasons Why, I of course immediately flashed on my own experience.
"It seemed to me the perfect opportunity to show what an actual suicide really looks like - to dispel the myth of the quiet drifting off, and to make viewers face the reality of what happens when you jump from a burning building into something much, much worse."
13 Reasons Why season four will be available to watch on Netflix today (Friday, June 5).
