The new series premieres THIS FRIDAY!
Hannah Still Plays A Major Role
Hannah will not be forgotten in season 2. The new season supposedly centers around who is responsible for her death and the actress who plays Hannah, Katherine Langford, told Entertainment Tonight back in March, “We’ve wrapped and Hannah is back but… different Hannah. You’ll see, very different to season one.”
A New Voice
There will be a new narrator for season 2 plus the tapes are gone. More tapes would be kinda tasteless.
Jessica's Story Line Is Far From Finished
Showrunner Brian Yorkey explained in an interview although most people believe Jessica's story line to be over with, it's actually quite the opposite. "Jessica is just beginning the process of recovering from her rape, and we have a rapist who has not in any way been brought to justice. To leave those two things hanging out there in the world would be upsetting. I want to see how that at least starts to play out and I want to do Jessica’s story the deserved justice of following her as she goes back to school, as she tries to begin to recover from what happened to her, because it’s something that millions of young women go through. And also [I want to] see somebody punch Bryce in the face.”
Bryce May Be Brought To Justice
Arguably the most intense moment(s) from season 1 were the rape of both Jessica and Hannah and it's been hinted at by both Netflix & show runner Brian Yorkey that Bryce will have to answer in some capacity for what he did.
Season 2 Is All Original
There is no second book to follow up 13 Reasons Why so the show runners and creators had to start from scratch. According to Steven Silver who plays Marcus, this has given way to the development characters “that were not so… developed in season one or in the book… you know, you can see more of an ensemble.”
According to Variety, the show will welcome at least 7 new faces!
- Chloe: the new head cheerleader
- Cyrus: an edgy, cynical mischief maker
- Mackenzie: Cyrus' sister
- Sonya: an ambitious young litigator
- Nina: track star
- Jackie: a warm, intelligent, passionate advocate for victims of bullying
- Rick: the new baseball coach
Selena Gomez Is Still Involved
Selena & her mom are still serving as executive producers of the second season and tbh I wish I was involved too!
