After filming was temporarily held up by Californian wildfires, season two of 13 Reasons Why is apparently now in the bag.
Taking to Twitter to break the news, Katherine Langford, who plays Hannah Baker in the show, has also confirmed her presence in the second season – despite Clay finishing off the tape cassettes she left behind following her suicide in the first chapter.
Contrary to our heroine, however, the tapes will not be making a return for this second batch of episodes. Instead, showrunner Brian Yorkey and his team will be exploring the characters' pasts through several different timelines.
Speaking of the evolution of her character in season two, Katherine Langford recently explained to Entertainment Weekly:
"It's a different story than season one and I think that's a good thing. This season, we get to explore a lot more of the other characters and their journeys, which I'm excited about [...]
You see a very different Hannah in season 2. I would prepare fans not to expect the Hannah from season 1 for a multitude of reasons. It’s funny because I just wrapped and I think a lot of this season for me is about letting Hannah go."
So while Hannah will be returning in some altered form in season two – with the story no longer told from her point of view – it looks as though she will not be on board for any future seasons.
Dylan Minnette, Ross Butler, Christian Navarro, Kate Walsh, Alisha Boe, Justin Prentice and new talent Brandon Flynn will all be picking up their roles again for the new season.
Season two of 13 Reasons Why still doesn't have a release date but it should drop at some point in 2018. You can re-watch the first season right now on Netflix.
