Time to invest in blue nail polish and blank cassette tapes, because there’s a good chance that Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why will be back for a second season.
The streaming video site is nearing a decision to bring back the teen drama, our sister site Deadline reports. And the series got its Season 2 writers’ room going a few weeks ago, per The Hollywood Reporter.
Another strong indicator that the series will continue: Ross Butler, who plays 13 Reasons‘s Zach, recently left The CW’s Riverdale because of scheduling reasons. (Butler is a series regular on the Netflix drama.)
Season 1 of the series, which was based on Jay Asher’s young adult novel, followed Dylan Minnette’s Clay as he listened to tapes left behind by Hannah (Katherine Langford), a friend and classmate who commits suicide before the beginning of the series.
[Spoiler alert] Though Clay makes his way through all of Hannah’s tapes by the finale, the season-ender leaves several storylines hanging — the shooting of classmate Alex, for one — which could be fodder for a continuation of the drama.
