Kate Walsh 13 Reasons Why Cast

Kate Walsh to Star in Selena Gomez Netflix Drama 13 Reasons Why

Kate Walsh will make her TV return with 13 Reasons Why, Netflix’s upcoming young adult drama from Selena Gomez.

Walsh will play the mother of Hannah, a teen who — before committing suicide — send a box of audiotapes to her classmates, telling them the roles they played in her death, our sister site Deadline reports.

Based on the 2007 young-adult novel by Jay Asher, 13 Reasons Why follows Clay (played by Dylan Minnette, Scandal) as he receives the box of tapes and instructions to pass them along to 12 other students. The project got a straight-to-series, 13-episode order from the streaming video service in October.

Gomez executive-produces the drama along with mom Mandy Teefey, Kristel Laiblin and Anonymous Content.

Derek Luke (Empire, Rogue) also joins the cast as guidance counselor Mr. Porter.

Walsh’s TV resume includes Private PracticeGrey’s Anatomy, Fargo, Full Circle and Bad Judge.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Sounds like a season 2 of GA when Mer tapes a patient talking about the people who wronged him before surgery and then he lives and sends the tapes anyway. I like Kate but she needs a better vehicle for her talents. Just….no.
