13 Reasons Why returns for season 2 on Netflix in May

Tuesday, May 1st 2018 by Oprah Flash

We’ve got the answer you’ve all been waiting for, 13 Reason Why is finally coming back, with season two set to premiere on Netflix, on 18 May.

Even if you didn’t get caught up in the hype last year, you definitely heard about it afterwards, as it divided watchers, some loved it and just as many hated it.

The teen drama dabbled with controversy by tackling sensitive issues such as mental health, bullying and suicide within a school environment.

With popstar Selena Gomez as one of its producers, the series also stars Dylan Minnette, Katherine Langford and Kate Walsh. Langford went on to receive a Golden Globe nod for her portrayal of Hannah Baker, the main character. The series is based on Jay Asher's best-selling novel.>

A Netflix spokesperson said: “Season two picks up in the aftermath of Hannah's death and the start of our characters' complicated journeys toward healing and recovery.

“Liberty High prepares to go on trial, but someone will stop at nothing to keep the truth surrounding Hannah's death concealed. A series of ominous polaroids lead Clay and his classmates to uncover a sickening secret and a conspiracy to cover it up.”

A trailer has been released and whisperings around the internet suggest that, this season will focus on serial sexual assault as a central theme, rather than the suicide of another character.

'Her story is just beginning'

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, creator of the series, Brian Yorkey, said: "I once read something online where someone said, 'Well, Jessica told her dad she was raped so her story is over.' I remember thinking that right there is reason enough to do a season two, because her story is just beginning — her experience continues to be a central part of season two."

He went on to say: “We look at the ways that sexual assault has been perpetrated over a number of years and has been in fact documented, and also the ways in which the institutions — the athletic department, the high school itself — are in some ways complicit in letting that happen."

Netflix has updated its Discussion Guides and created a tool for viewers to get support and advice surrounding issues such as bullying, sexual assault and drug abuse.

Netflix offers a free 30-day trial, it then costs £5.99 a month for the basic subscription. For the standard package with HD streaming and the ability to watch it on two screen at one time it’s £7.99 a month.

The premium package is £9.99 a month for Ultra HD and the ability to have four of family or friends stream on a different screen at the same time. Top titles like Black Mirror, Suits and Stranger Things, are all available to watch on the service with new show releases announced each month.
