The upcoming season of 13 Reasons Why hasn’t premiered yet, but Netflix is ready for more high school drama.
The streaming service has renewed the controversial series for a fourth season before the third season premieres, but it has been confirmed that the fourth season will be the series’ last. It is also confirmed that season three will premiere August 23rd.
Based on the novel of the same name, the series chronicles the lives of several high school students as they deal with the suicide of Hannah Baker. Before she died, Hannah left a series of recordings behind the thirteen reasons why she chose to end her life.
Though the first season was critically acclaimed, it received backlash for its graphic depiction of Baker’s suicide (which was recently edited out). The controversy continued when the series was renewed for a second season, as many critics believed that extending the story was unnecessary and the storylines that deal with tough topics were being executed poorly.
It doesn’t look like the controversy surrounding 13 Reasons Why will end anytime soon. What are your thoughts on this early renewal?
