The popular Netflix show is returning with its 3rd season. Although the actual release date hasn’t been released and the latest teaser has confirmed that it is happening in 2019. There are many questions yet to be answered. Especially seeing how season 2 left us with a cliffhanger.
Season 2 saw the friendly ghost of Hannah Baker (Katherine Langford) haunting Clay in every episode. It showed the other side of Hannah story. The season highlighted the issues of bullying, rape cases, substance abuse, parental issues, depression and also, as seen in the last episode, mass shooting at school. Still, the season mainly focused on Hannah’s story.
So, what is in season 3 of this teen drama? This article provides everything you need to know about season 3.
As said earlier, no confirmed date of season 3 is out yet. But it is a guess that season 3 might drop, at the earliest, in May 2019 or in the late June or July.
Dylan Minette said through a tweet, “I know I never really tweet about 13 reasons why but I gotta say some of these last few scripts of season 3 are the show’s best. alright, that’s all”. So, now there is that confirmation that even though the new season might take some time, it is definitely going to be worth it.

WHAT ABOUT THE CAST:
Most of the major casts are going to be back in the upcoming season which includes Dylan Minette (Clay Jensen), Christian Navarro (Tony Padilla), Brandon Flynn (Justin Foley), Justin Prentice (Bryce Walker) and Alisha Boe (Jessica Davis). The other casts that might be promoted to the main cast are Devin Druid (Tyler Down) and Timothy Granaderos (Montgomery de la Cruz).
Katherine Langford might not be coming back for the third season but even if she does, it is possibly going to be for a minor role. “There’s a whole life that Hannah had, and there’s more we can learn about her. Overall, learning more about her is more important to the entire narrative,” Dylan outlined.
Brian Yorker, the showrunner, said, “The loss of Hannah will continue to be the inciting traumatic event for this group of kids and parents. It will always be part of the story.”
SEASON 3 PLOT:
Since no interviews have been conducted for season 3, we don’t really know a lot about what’s going to happen in it. But from the last season, certain things about season three can be deduced.
Season 3 might focus on the issue of abortion since Chloe, Bryce’s girlfriend is pregnant with his baby. Justin Prentice said, “I think [the topic of abortion could be covered] and it would be interesting to see how they handle it because from my point of view, Bryce comes from a powerful family and they have a way of making things disappear, so I don’t know. It’d be very interesting to see.”
The cliffhanger where Clay is standing with a rifle with the police sirens coming from a distance as Justin Foley asks him, “what do we do now?”. Guess that question might be answered.
Also, how will Alex’ reaction to Justin and Jessica’s relationship has not been shown yet.
Justin’s budding relationship with Jessica and his adopted family might be highlighted. And what will happen about his hidden addiction to Heroine?
All of that and much more are definitely some things you’ll get to see in season 3 of 13 Reason’s Why!
