Hannah Baker’s story may be over, but her Netflix drama lives on.
13 Reasons Why will return for a second season, the streaming service announced Sunday. Additionally, Tony and Pulitzer Prize winner Brian Yorkey will take over as showrunner in Season 2, succeeding Diana Son.
Though Season 1 followed Katherine Langford’s character as she made her decision to take her own life, it also introduced several of her classmates, some of them with mysteries of their own. Per the official logline, Season 2 will pick up in the aftermath of Hannah’s death and chronicle “the characters’ complicated journeys toward healing and recovery.”
While the Jay Asher novel on which Season 1 was based does not have a sequel, the author recently said he’d like to see a continuation of the story.
13 Reasons Why Season 2, which will consist of 13 episodes, is set to premiere in 2018. Watch the renewal announcement below, then tell us how you’re feeling about the decision to extend the series beyond its source material.
