13 Reasons Why has officially been renewed for a third season, with Netflix revealing the news with a video announcement on Wednesday.
The clip sees a locker being opened and a paper bag taken out, with the locker door bearing the number three in black paint.
Not returning, however, is Katherine Langford, who recently revealed that she’s done telling Hannah Baker’s story.
“For me, we told Hannah’s story so fully in Season 1,” she said. “In a way, doing that scene in episode 13 [of Season 2], I’ve so often referred to it as it was the hardest scene because it’s the scene where I had to let her go. I think coming back this season was challenging because it was playing her but not really her.”
“Hannah…I love you…and I let you go” Those are the words I was able to say six months ago, and now can finally share with you…As most of you know @13reasonswhy was my first ever job and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to tell Hannah’s story so fully in season 1, and to be asked back for a season 2. Thankyou to @netflix @paramountpics @anoncontent , the incredible producers, creatives, cast and crew for making these last 2 years so special. And to all of you here – Thankyou for filling my life with love and light ? This show will always be a special part of my life, and regardless of whether Hannah is there or not, I know that I will continue to strive to do work that is meaningful and has a positive impact – whether that be in film, music, or any other form of art. There is a lot coming up this next year, and I can’t wait to share it with you ? #hannahbaker
