The story of Liberty High School continues: 13 Reasons Why has been renewed for a third season on Netflix.
The streaming platform made the announcement with the above YouTube video depicting an opening locker and the number three. Season three is set to premiere sometime in 2019.
13 Reasons Why, based on the book by Jay Asher, follows the suicide of Hannah Baker, a high schooler who left tapes for her classmates containing the 13 reasons why she took her own life. The second season followed a lawsuit and trial her parents pursued against the school district. While the first season was narrated by Hannah, the second featured her peers telling their stories.
“I think that her presence and the importance of her and her story will always matter and will always be there. To be specific in this season, the big thing to take away is in regards to the trial where her image is distorted and defiled,” Langford told EW. “At the end of the day one of the really important things to take from this season in regards to Hannah is that it doesn’t matter who she was or what she did, she didn’t deserve any of what happened to her.”
Production on the new season, which will be 13 episodes, will resume later in 2018. Brian Yorkey will return as creator, showrunner and executive producer. Joy Gorman, Mandy Teefey, Kristel Laiblin, Tom McCarthy, Steve Golin and Selena Gomez are also returning as executive producers.
The story continues in 2019.
