There probably won't be anymore Hannah scenes
The show's star is officially saying goodbye. But what about more flashbacks... and paranormal visits? Not long after the release of Season 2, the actress who plays Hannah, Katherine Langford, confirmed her exit: "It was kind of like being in purgatory for Season 2, and then being able to officially say goodbye to her," she told EW. "It definitely felt like time. For me, letting Hannah go was in Season 1; Season 2 was for Clay to let her go. It was being able to assist Clay on that journey." Though she's done, she said at a recent FYC panel that she's going to try to maintain her connection with the show’s fans -- "even if it's in a small capacity, on social media."
Who else is (or isn't) going to be in Season 3?
The key leads in the ensemble cast -- Dylan Minnette, Brandon Flynn, Alisha Boe, Justin Prentice, Christian Navarro, Miles Heizer, Devin Druid, and Ross Butler -- are all set to return. The eight stars were all guaranteed major raises, according to Deadline, in order to secure their returns following long-winded negotiations.
Though unconfirmed, characters we may be seeing less of or may not be returning include Sosie Bacon’s Skye Miller, who gave an emotional farewell to Dylan Minnette's Clay after revealing she'd be moving to a new city for a new beginning, and Kate Walsh's Olivia Baker, who hinted at a potential move of her own.
Behind the scenes, Yorkey will be back as showrunner, alongside Joy Gorman, Mandy Teefey, Kristel Laiblin, Tom McCarthy, Steve Golin, and, of course, Selena Gomez.
Word of new faces, as it did last year, could come closer to the end of summer.
The setting -- at least part of it -- will be the same
According to an April report from local Californian paper Sonoma West Times & News, "the West Sonoma County Union High School District board on April 11 approved a third licensing agreement with Paramount Pictures that allows the company to film scenes at the Sebastopol High School." Translation: The school you know as Liberty High has been rebooked for production. The Times & News added that shooting could start mid-June and end by mid-December.
