Season 1 of the show chronicles the aftermath of 17-year-old Hannah Baker’s suicide. Her story and reasoning behind her tragic death unfold in tapes she left behind. The series creator, Brian Yorkey, shared with the Los Angeles Times his plans for season two. “Hannah’s story isn’t over — she has parents who still don’t have the complete story,” he said. “There’s a rapist who hasn’t been brought to justice, and there’s a living survivor of that rapist who is just beginning her journey of recovery.”
He continued to explain the importance of following through on this crucial and once hushed topic saying, “Part of the problem with our culture is that we say, ‘Oh, the story’s done. Rapes are treated, at best, as a multi-episode arc within a season, when anyone who’s experienced rape knows it’s a lifelong story. If we left these 13 episodes out in the world with [the rapist] not being brought to justice … it’d be incredibly dissatisfying to me.”
Season 2 of 13 Reasons Why will premier in 2018. Will it take the spot of Netflix’s most-watched show again? We’ll just have to wait and see. In the meantime, we have a feeling all the cast’s behind-the-scenes photos will tide us over.
