Netflix's hit series "13 Reasons Why" just got a Season 2 renewal. The show will premiere its sophomore run in 2018 and with 13 episodes.
Shortly after its premiere on March 31, "13 Reasons Why" became the most talked-about show in Netflix history. It is also the most tweeted-about show of 2017 so far. Here's everything we know so far about the "13 Reasons Why" Season 2.
"13 Reasons Why" Season 2 plot
The second season will pick up in the aftermath of Hannah Baker's death and the beginning of the characters' journeys towards healing and recovery. The show is expected to tackle some of the cliffhangers in the Season 1 finale, such as Alex's suicide attempt and Jessica's rape and the fact that Hannah's parents are now in possession of the tapes.
"There's a rapist who hasn't been brought to justice and there's a living survivor of that rapist who is just beginning her journey of recovery," series creator Brian Yorkey tells the LA Times.
Will Katherine Langford be back?
Hannah, played by Langford, was part of the narrative in the present timeline only through the tapes. Now that the tapes have been heard, does this mean she will be out of the picture in Season 2? Not quite. Yorkey tells The Hollywood Reporter that Hannah's story is not yet finished and she is still very much an integral part of the next chapter of the story.

The series stars Dylan Minnette, Kate Walsh, Ross Butler, Alisha Boe, Christian Navarro, Brandon Flynn, Miles Heizer, Justin Prentice, Devin Druid, Amy Hargreaves, Derek Luke and more.
