No more tapes, a new narrator, and everything else we’re gonna get in season two of 13 Reasons Why
Netflix have just dropped five major clues
Usually after binge watching a Netflix series and forgetting to eat, sleep or leave our bedrooms for a week straight there’s a long period of convalescence and total silence where we put our lives together and wait with bated breath for any information on the follow up.
But 13 Reasons Why has been so popular that Netflix are apparently making an exception. Season two was confirmed almost instantly, and now they’ve even dropped five major clues about what to expect from the show when it returns. On Tuesday the company tweeted out the details, including a new narrator, no more tapes and different perspectives on Hannah’s suicide.
Along with trying to address bigger issues of society’s gender dynamics and how we raise girls and boys, the show also promises to explore the aftermath of Hannah’s revelations on Bryce and Jessica, as Jess tries to put her life together after admitting she’s been raped, and Bryce “hopefully gets what’s coming to him” which, yeah, could be more committal, sure.
Despite the fact Hannah Baker will no longer be the narrator, it seems pretty clear that her storyline will still be central to season two. Actress Katherine Langford will return to her role as Hannah, but the clues seem to confirm speculation that 13 Reasons Why will move away from Hannah and Clay to a new main character, which could well be Jessica.
Showrunner Bryan Yorkey also hinted at a new device to replace the painfully nostalgic cassette tapes that were central to season one. He said: “The tapes are still obviously on people’s minds, but there is a different sort of analog technology that plays a hugely important role in season 2”.
