Before you start reading this article, we warn you that it contains fundamental spoilers for the new season of 13 Reasons Why, so if you haven’t seen it, we recommend you stop reading.
Although Netflix He has not officially confirmed it, everything indicates that there will be a third part of the series.
In fact, a few days ago Brian Yorkey, the creator of the program, confirmed to the American portal Entertainment Weekly, that there will be a next cycle of the series, which will probably answer the doubts that were left with the last installment.
However, fans cannot claim victory yet, because although it is very difficult for it to happen, a body urged Netflix to suspend 13 Reasons Why. This is the television censorship association headed by parents Parents Television Council, who – as reported by BioBioChile – were upset by the crude scene of the rape of Tyler (Devin Druid) in the bathroom of his school, by a group of abusers.
“We are issuing a warning on the second season of Netflix’s ’13 reasons why ‘and urge the company to withdraw the series entirely due to its potentially harmful content.”They indicated at the time, concerned about the effect it could have on young people who watch the series rated for those over 16 years of age.
But if Netflix continues with its plans, the next part of the series should see the light in 2019 and answer some unknowns that remained and we leave them below.
1. Chloe’s pregnancy
As the season progresses, Chloe (Anne Winters), Bryce Walter’s (Justin Prentice) girlfriend, discovers that he raped her one day when she was completely unconscious during a party at the athletes’ “Club”, where they even took pictures of the done.
And while she was willing to testify against him in Hannah Baker’s (Katherine Langford) family’s trial against Liberty High School, she ultimately repented and denied Bryce raped her.
Although at the time no one understood Chloe’s change of opinion, and it was thought that it was out of fear or love for Bryce, later it is discovered that there was another reason: she was pregnant.
In the next season we can probably see what happens to her and her pregnancy, if she will tell Bryce, if she decides to interrupt it or if she decides to go on alone.
In an interview with EW, Justin Prentice (Bryce) indicated that although he does not know if there will be a next season, but if there is, he believes that when Chloe tells Bryce that she is pregnant, he will seek to “make the” problem disappear.
“Realistically, Bryce comes from a powerful family. They have ways of making things just go away. “, he expressed.
2. Will Clay go to jail?
In the season two finale, Clay (Dylan Minette) exposes his own life and manages to convince Tyler not to carry out a shooting at the school dance, just before he did.
At that moment Tony (Christian Navarro) appears in his car – risking his parole – and takes Tyler away.
However, Clay remains in the front of the building with the gun he took from Tyler in his hand and within seconds of the police arriving, so everything indicates that he could be charged with an attempted mass murder.
3. Will Bryce ever pay?
In the second season, Jessica (Alisha Boe) finally decides to denounce that Bryce raped her, but the justice gave a very mild sentence to the abuser: three months of probation because the judge considered that he deserved an opportunity to amend his way .
After that, his family decides to change him to another school, so it is presumed that he could not appear or be much less in the coming season.
But will Bryce ever pay for his sins? Prentice told EW that while he has not heard of Season 3, he believes there is “still more to explore” in Bryce’s case.
“When they are preparing a new school year. There’s a little line from Zack Dempsey (Ross Butler): ‘I think I’ll see you on the football field,’ which might suggest there is more football, “he said, hinting that he could come back.
4. Will Hannah appear again?
In one of the last scenes of the season, Clay delivers an emotional farewell speech to Hannah at her funeral. “I love you and I let you go,” he says and we see how she leaves the church as a sign of farewell, as she was present all the time as a result of the young man’s imagination.
Brian Yorkey, hinted in an interview with EW that Hannah would stop appearing or would do it much less in the next cycle. “I don’t see a great constant presence for Hannah because I think we needed her to finish telling her side of the story and we needed it for Clay to get to say, ‘I love you and I’m letting you go.’ If the story continues, and there is certainly a lot more to know about several of these characters, the spotlight on Hannah Baker is likely to be over. “
In fact, Katherine Langford herself said goodbye to her character on social networks. “‘Hannah… I love you… and I have to let you go.’ These were the words that I spoke six months ago and that I can finally share with you. As most of you already know, 13 Reasons Why was the first job of my life and I am very grateful that I had the opportunity to tell Hannah’s story in season one, and to be asked to come back in season two. ”
“Thank you to the entire team, Netflix, producers, creatives, cast and crew who have made these two years so special. And to all who follow me here, thank you for filling my life with love and light. This series will always be a very special part of my life, and it doesn’t matter if Hannah is there or not, because I know that I will continue to strive for my work to be meaningful and have a positive impact, be it in film, music or any other art form. There are many things coming next year and I really want to share them with you ”, he continued.
“Hannah…I love you…and I let you go” Those are the words I was able to say six months ago, and now can finally share with you…As most of you know @13reasonswhy was my first ever job and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to tell Hannah’s story so fully in season 1, and to be asked back for a season 2. Thankyou to @netflix @paramountpics @anoncontent , the incredible producers, creatives, cast and crew for making these last 2 years so special. And to all of you here – Thankyou for filling my life with love and light 🙏 This show will always be a special part of my life, and regardless of whether Hannah is there or not, I know that I will continue to strive to do work that is meaningful and has a positive impact – whether that be in film, music, or any other form of art. There is a lot coming up this next year, and I can’t wait to share it with you 💖 #hannahbaker
So we’ll probably see Hannah in a few flashbacks if she ever comes back.
5. What will happen to Tyler?
Tyler was one of the characters who suffered the most in the second season. In the first he was just a lonely and misfit boy, but in the second he managed to find a group of friends with whom he felt comfortable. However, later he not only lost them, but also had a horrible experience.
In the final episode, Tyler (Devin Druid) was approached in the bathroom by sportsman Monty (Timothy Grenadiers) – one of his former stalkers – and two other subjects. There, the three brutally beat the shy young man, slamming his head against a sink and then burying his face in the toilet. But the most horrendous part follows when he is raped with a mop handle that is covered in blood. After the fierce attack, the subjects leave Tyler crying half naked on the floor.
This was such a strong physical and emotional pain for Tyler, that he decides to perpetrate a shooting at the school dance and exact revenge for what they did to him. However, he manages to be dissuaded by Clay at the last minute.
Along these lines, it is believed that the next season could focus largely on Tyler’s trauma and suffering. Will you report the sexual assault? or at least will he tell someone? How will you deal with this? Will Monty be punished?are some of the questions that the new cycle is expected to solve.
6. Jessica, Justin and Alex’s love triangle
Although Alex (Miles Heizer) was Jessica’s great support all season and towards the end they restarted the love relationship they had when they met, in the last chapter we saw that things get confusing when facing her other ex: Justin ( Brandon Flynn).
It was like this that during the dance, all the old feelings rebounded in Jessica and she has a sexual encounter with Justin in the school bathroom.
But Justin isn’t just any ex, he’s the one who allowed Bryce to rape her at a party. Although he was remorseful, can Jessica forgive him and resume the romance?
7. Justin’s addiction and his life with Clay’s family
When it was thought that Justin had overcome his addiction to heroin and that he had finally found a home with Clay’s family, who decided to adopt him, the creators showed that things are not so easy.
In the last episode it is seen that Justin continues to inject heroin secretly from his friends and his new family. How far will that go? Can you overcome the addiction?
In addition, it was also hinted that Justin’s stepfather spied on him while he was at Clay’s house, will he take revenge for the money that the young man stole when he fled there?
These and other questions should be resolved in a possible next season of the hit series.
