'13 Reasons Why' Has Officially Been Picked Up For Season 3 & It Hasn't Even Been a Month

13 Reasons Why fans, mark your calendars, because you're getting another season of the hit Netflix drama! Just after its release of season two less than a month ago, Netflix has announced their plans to renew the show for a third season, slated to premiere next year.

After discovering the reasons for Hannah Baker's suicide through the tapes in the first season, season two focuses on its aftermath, with the characters facing their own issues and learning to heal—and Liberty High preparing to go to trial against Hannah's mother, Olivia Baker.


According to Buzzfeed News, season three will contain 13 episodes, the same number as the past two seasons, and will also be produced by Paramount TV and Anonymous Content. There aren't many details surrounding what will happen in the new season, but it will definitely have the answers to all of our questions from the last two.

One major bummer, however, is Katherine Langford, who announced on Instagram that she likely won’t be returning to 13 Reasons Why.


"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

I'm curious to see how the show will go with the absence of Hannah Baker but I guess that will have to wait until next year.
