The series, created by Brian Yorkey and based on the young adult novel by Jay Asher, tells the story of a young girl named Hannah Baker tragically committing suicide, devastating her classmate Clay Jensen, who had a crush on her. A few weeks after her death he returns home from school to find a mysterious box with his name on it, containing cassette tapes recorded by Hannah, detailing the thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life.
While THR mention in their article that Netflix have declined to comment, they heard from sources that a writers’ room for the sophomore run has been up and running for a few weeks. The series itself has become a talking point since its release on the streaming service, with people debating on whether the show goes too far for it’s graphic portrayal of suicide, as well as how it handles bullying and sexual assault, and if it fails to provide an option to suicide.
While I thought the series overall was good, I’m still skeptical on how they can make another thirteen episodes with the material that they’ve left open to continue the story. There’s two plots that weren’t resolved that will obviously be used in some capacity if/when the series gets its second season renewal, I just don’t know how it’ll flow.
