’13 REASONS WHY’ Getting Near For Season 2 Renewal

April 27, 2017

13 reasons why

While an official announcement has not been made yet that Netflix’s adaption 13 REASONS WHY, based on YA book by Jay Asher, it seems like the season 2 renewal is coming soon.

This shouldn’t be a complete surprise as the series has been well received by critics and has gotten many buzz on social media. While it seems that the main premise is done, there’s currently talks on how to extend it beyond Season 1.

 

According to THRthe writers room has been up and running for weeks now. Asher spoke with EW and is also on board with another season saying:

“I’m curious as well. What happens to Clay? How do people react to what Alex did at the very end? What’s going to happen to Mr. Porter? I’d thought of a sequel at some point. I’d brainstormed it, but decided I wasn’t going to write it. So I’d love to see it.”

That’s not all, Ross Butler, who stars in Riverdale will get recast due to his “busy schedule.” A statement was released by series creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa saying:

“We love what Ross did with the role of Reggie [this season], but because of his commitments to other projects, we couldn’t use him nearly as much as we would have liked. [Next season], we want more Reggie on our show– he’s Archie’s rival!– and because Ross is unavailable to come back to RIVERDALE, we’re looking for a new Reggie. Those are big shoes to fill, but we’re confident we can find an actor who is as funny and sexy as Ross. And of course we all wish Ross the best.”

That cannot be a coincidence either, can it?

13 REASONS WHY follows teenager Clay Jensen (Dylan Minnette) as he returns home from school to find a mysterious box with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker (newcomer Katherine Langford)– his classmate and crush– who tragically committed suicide two weeks earlier. On tape, Hannah explains that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Will Clay be one of them? If he listens, he’ll find out how he made the list.

Also starring Kate Walsh, Brian D’Arcy James, Derek Luke, Brandon Flynn, Justin Prentice, Alisha Boe, Christian Navarro and Tommy Dorfman.

Directed by Tom McCarthy, written by Tony and Pulitzer Prize Winner Brian Yorkey, and executive produced by Selena Gomez, Joy Gorman, Michael Sugar, Steve Golin and Yorkey from Anonymous Content, Kristen Laiblin and Mandy Teefey. The series is produced for Netflix by Paramount Television.
