The third season’s plot of 13 Reasons Why has mostly been kept under wraps since the project was announced last year. All that had been known is that Hannah Baker’s (Katherine Langford) story had come to an end, and that the new season would follow a whole new story line. When the season would be released however was also kept secret. That is, until now. Netflix announced that the upcoming season would be released on August 23rd. They also announced that the series had been renewed for a fourth and final season.
Along with the announcement, Netflix released a trailer for the new season, as well as an official description.
Eight months after preventing Tyler from committing an unthinkable act at Spring Fling, Clay, Tony, Jessica, Alex, Justin and Zach find ways to shoulder the burden of the cover-up together while helping Tyler move toward recovery. But when the aftermath of a tumultuous Homecoming game culminates in the disappearance of a football player, and Clay finds himself under police scrutiny, it’s up to a shrewd outsider to steer the group through an investigation that threatens to lay bare everyone’s deepest secrets. The stakes are raised in this riveting third season of ’13 Reasons Why,’ as the consequences of even the most well-intended actions can alter a life forever.
Yes, that’s right, Bryce Walker (Justin Prentice), one of the main antagonists of the first two seasons is now dead, and Clay Jensen (Dylan Minnette) is under investigation for it. It certainly makes for an interesting story.
