The streaming drama will return in 2019.
June 6, 2018
Netflix announced this morning that 13 Reasons Why has been picked up for a third season. Coming just two weeks after the release of the show's sophomore run, the good news came in the form of a short teaser video released on social media.
The decision to renew is no surprise, as the teen drama is one of the streaming service's most-popular original shows. The series premiered last year with a lot of buzz due to its controversial subject matter and the involvement of Selena Gomez, who is involved as an executive producer.
The first season received a high amount of praise, with critics applauding the show's approach to its source material's dark subject matter as well the performances of its young cast. Season 2, however, was not met with such a warm reception; reviews have been mixed, with many noting that it feels like an unnecessary continuation that lost the spirit of the first season.
Adapted from the bestselling 2007 novel Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher, the series is about the story behind a teenage girl named Hannah who takes her own life. In the weeks following her shocking death, one of her classmates finds a box on his porch that contains recordings Hannah made explaining the 13 reasons why she decided to commit suicide.
Look for Season 3 of 13 Reasons Why in 2019.

1 was good/innovative
2 I haven’t even completed because I try to watch and I feel like I have to force myself. That’s a sign to me that I need to stop
3 pretty sure I won’t try it as I bet I never finish 2

Nothing like beating a story to death! Some shows should only have 1 or 2 seasons. It's all about the $$$
