Final Season Of Netflix's 13 Reasons Why Will Land On 5 June
The fourth and final season of 13 Reasons Why will land on Netflix on 5 June.
The show announced the news on Twitter with a cute clip showing the cast and crew in tears as they worked on the final episodes.
Although plot details are fairly thin on the ground at the moment, the fourth season will show the group of teens preparing to graduate 'but before they say goodbye, they'll have to keep a dangerous secret buried and face heartbreaking choices that could impact their future forever'. No biggie then, eh?
The new release date has got fans very excited, if not a little bit sad that it's all coming to an end, with one person posting: "Wow this gave me goosebumps, I'm so emotional."
A second fan wrote: "Hands down one of my favorite show all of time! So sad that this will end."
While a third chipped in: "I'm so sad this is ending. Such a good show."
Viewers can expect to see Clay Jensen, played by Dylan Minnette, return alongside Jessica (Alisha Boe) and Alex (Miles Heizer) and Tyler (Devin Druid).
The fourth season will consist of 10, one-hour long episodes and will, hopefully, provide a satisfying conclusion for fans who have enjoyed the controversial show since it first landed on Netflix in 2017.

Although popular with viewers, the show's sensitive themes - covering issues such as mental health and suicide - have caused a fair bit of division with some claiming it 'glamorised suicide'.
Netflix announced last year 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'.
In a statement at the time, Netflix said: "We've heard from many young people that 13 Reasons Why encouraged them to start conversations about difficult issues like depression and suicide and get help - often for the first time.
"As we prepare to launch season three later this summer, we've been mindful about the ongoing debate around the show. So, on the advice of medical experts, including Dr. Christine Moutier, Chief Medical Officer at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, we've decided with creator Brian Yorkey and the producers to edit the scene in which Hannah takes her own life from season one."
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."
