13 Reasons Why is officially getting a third season — without Hannah Baker

We’re FINALLY letting her rest

Earlier today, a Netflix representative announce the streaming platform is renewing their hit original series 13 Reasons Why.

The controversial show, produced by Selena Gomez, is set to start production on the third season later this year. Fans can expect the premiere sometime in 2019.

Though the rest of the cast will be reprising their roles as the oldest-looking high schoolers ever, Katherine Langford announced on Instagram that she won't be portraying protagonist Hannah Baker again. And thank god, because Hannah Baker is the fucking worst.

"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," she wrote. "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 πŸ’–β€

"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 πŸ™ 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 πŸ’– #hannahbaker

13 Reasons Why has been criticized by mental health experts for its graphic content and "unrealistic" portrayal of suicide. Reportedly, teenagers have claimed the series as inspiration for copycat suicides and self-harm attempts.
