It’s been over a year since the Netflix teenage drama 13 Reasons Why was officially renewed for Season 3. And we haven’t seen it hit the screen yet, but we’ve got all the latest updates for you on the cast, filming, plot and even a release date.
Katherine Langford won’t be returning as Hannah Baker this time:

"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 my journey on @13reasonswhy has officially come to an END! As most of you know, this 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
But all our other favorites including Dylan Minette, Ross Butler, Anne Winters, and Brandon Flynn are coming back for a whooping Season 3.
It doesn’t look like there’s going to be a new set of tapes or anything (thank God). “If there is a future for the show, to me, it’s about these characters and not necessarily a new set of reasons or a new set of tapes,” said creator Brian Yorkey. He seems inclined to take these characters and their story forward.
The ending of Season 2 caused quite a stir. The finale reveals that Chloe is pregnant, presumably with Bryce’s child. But she’s staying with him, so we’ll see what that means. Then there’s Jessica, who gave in to her feelings and had a heated moment with Justin in the locker rooms. We’ve yet to see what it means for her relationship with Alex.
Then we saw Tyler trying to carry out a school-shooting after being brutally assaulted and the big finish, Clay, standing outside, holding guns as the police approach. Also, if he doesn’t get arrested then and there, we might see him dating again, after the whole “Hannah, I love you and I let you go” thing.
It’ll be interesting to see how all of that plays out into a new storyline.
When Do We Get To See It?
Filming started a long time ago and is reportedly done with, so soon, hopefully.
Season One came out in March 2017. And Season 2 in May 2018, just 12 months after it was confirmed. If we go by that, we should have seen Season 3 in June or July, but that’s almost over and nothing yet. Netflix also usually drops a trailer a month before the actual release. So best case scenario, trailer later this July and release in August?

But a 2019 release date is definite, confirmed by the announcement video!
