Could 13 Reasons Why Return for a Third Season?

By  | 

Wow, you guys! The second season of the hit Netflix series 13 Reasons Why hasn’t even arrived yet, and already, we’re wondering if there’s a season three in the cards!

For those of you who somehow missed the news, the series will be back with its second season on May 18th, which means that in just over two weeks you’ll have at least some of the answers you’ve been pining for since you finished watching season one.

The tapes were just the beginning. May 18.

Even though we’re already dreading finishing the next season (and let’s be honest… it’ll take us about a day), showrunner Brian Yorkey may have just revealed that the series might not end with season 2.

Yup! When the The Hollywood Reporter asked Brian about the possibility of yet another season of the series, he said, “With the second season, we feel as with the first that we’re following the stories of these characters. I always think there’s more story to tell, but I think that depends on viewers and everyone’s reaction to it and whether it’s important to keep telling the story.”

Well, you heard him, ladies and gents! If you want a third season of 13RW, it sounds like you’re going to have to have a big reaction to this upcoming one, but LBR, we’re sure it’ll be just as compelling as the first.

If the show does come back though, you can throw the tapes out the window because Brian says it’s just not happening. He told THR, “If there is a future for the show, to me, it’s about these characters, and not necessarily a new set of reasons or a new set of tapes. Someone else might do that, but that’s not my job to do that.”

Wow… guess we’re just gonna have to wait and see!
