'13 Reasons Why' Season 2 Already Locked In Despite Controversies; Showrunner Teases New Installment's Arc
Netflix's new original drama, "13 Reasons Why" easily became a big hit as soon as it was released in March and despite the controversies it is facing, a second season has already been ordered. The series' showrunner recently talked about what to expect from the new installment and it seems that fans will get more of Hannah Bakers' history.
The Selena Gomez-produced drama anthology has already been picked up by Netflix for a second season. The premiere schedule is yet to be announced but several organizations and institutions are already protesting for "13 Reasons Why" season 2 release. It can be recalled that mental health experts and psychologists criticized the show for allegedly glorifying teen suicide which later on led some schools to discourage their students to stop seeing the mystery drama.
The protests though are not stopping Netflix to release a follow-up story and Showrunner Brian Yorkey recently talked about the upcoming season's plot. Yorkey revealed that there are more to discover about Hannah Bakers' past experiences that pushed her to end her life. Also, the characters who were somehow involved in her suicide have their own stories to tell which might all be displayed in the new installment.
The trial between Hannah Bakers' parents and the school is also to go down in "13 Reasons Why" season 2, according to Yorkey. The high schooler's rape might also be given justice. The showrunner also teased a new analog technology, apart from the tape recorder, coming to the second run which will intrigue the modern youth.
While the show has earned multiple criticisms, its youth audiences are persistent in testifying on how it helped them realize the evils of their generation. Some students even put up a positive spin on the critically acclaimed series as they come up with a "13 Reasons Why Not" activity in their school.
Students of the Oxford High School in Michigan are reportedly airing their own life struggles to the student body every morning. Rather than sharing reasons to inflict self-harm though, these students are reportedly impacting inspirations on why not to commit suicide.
The premiere of "13 Reasons Why" season 2 is yet to be announced but most of its fans believe that it will come out the same month as the first installment's release in 2018. The original cast members are all expected to reprise their roles including Katherine Langford who plays the role of Hannah Baker.
