With a cliffhanger ending, season 2 left 13 Reasons Why fans eager to see where the story would go next. We’ll get to find out, of course, because 13 Reasons Why is naturally coming back to Netflix for a third season. The controversial series didn’t stop for breath – season 3 was ordered right away by the streaming service after season 2 concluded, and Netflix has already ordered a fourth and final season, which is likely to be released either at the back end of 2020 or early in 2021.
Meanwhile, here’s everything that’s been revealed so far…

The third season won’t see the return of Hannah’s ghost, as Deadline has reported that star Katherine Langford won’t be back this time.
“I think 13 Reasons Why will always be an important part of my life. It was the first job I ever had,” Lang said of her exit, adding that she planned to maintain her connection with the show’s fans “even if it’s in a small capacity, on social media”.
Dylan Minnette, Christian Navarro, Brandon Flynn, Justin Prentice and Alisha Boe will all be back in season 3, though, with Minnette getting the fan base hyped up.
13 Reasons Why season 3 plot
Here’s the official synopsis for season 3:
Eight months after preventing Tyler from committing an unthinkable act at Spring Fling, Clay, Tony, Jessica, Alex, Justin, and Zach find ways to shoulder the burden of the cover-up together while helping Tyler move toward recovery. But when the aftermath of a tumultuous Homecoming game culminates in the disappearance of a football player, and Clay finds himself under police scrutiny, it’s up to a shrewd outsider to steer the group through an investigation that threatens to lay bare everyone’s deepest secrets.
Hannah’s absence should help the story move forward, as 13 Reasons Why creator Brian Yorkey explained:
“What happened to Hannah will always be the first clause of the story. The rest of the story is about young people, as so many young people, maybe all young people today (learn) how to heal from the things that have hurt them…to make the world that they want it to be, not just the world they are inheriting…and above all, how to take care of each other.”
