When is 13 Reasons Why Season 2 coming out?
The second season of 13 Reasons Why arrives May 18, 2018, with 13 new episodes. "The truth is coming," Netflix said at the end of April, announcing the premiere date with a stylish 90-second teaser trailer (above). "The tapes were just the beginning." The clip goes on to show a handful of key characters frozen amid a cascade of cryptic Polaroids, many of which foreshadow the drama to come.
How do I watch 13 Reasons Why Season 2?
It'll be back on Netflix, all at once. Plan accordingly.
Remind me: What actually happened in Season 1?
The first installment of the YA saga centered around Clay (Dylan Minnette), a Liberty High School student who received seven cassettes detailing the reasons his crush, Hannah Baker (Katherine Langford), committed suicide. Each episode unspooled as a side of one of the tapes, one by one connecting Clay's peers, popular and otherwise, to Hannah. While Season 1 was a mostly faithful adaptation of author Jay Asher's source material, showrunner Brian Yorkey stretched Clay's pursuit of the truth over the course of 13 hour-long episodes by adding a couple subplots and characters, ultimately capping the season with a number of cliffhangers. One of the largest involved Bryce (Justin Prentice), who was revealed to have raped both Hannah and Jessica (Alisha Boe) -- would his crimes ever get exposed? The other major plot point to remember from the end of Season 1 would be the Bakers' move to sue the school for Hannah's death. As that legal battle continues to unfold, you should see many, if not all, of the characters you met in Season 1 get involved.
