13 reasons why season 2

Over the weekend, I binge-watched all thirteen episodes of Netflix’s new series 13 Reasons Why.

You may have watched the trailer for 13 Reasons Why and quickly discounted it as another forgettable YA adaptation, but I assure you, the series is worth your time. It has episodes directed by Oscar-winning director Tom McCarthy (Spotlight, The Visitor), Gregg Araki (Mysterious Skin, The Doom Generation), Jessica Yu (American Dreams, Ping Pong Playa), among others. And since it’s adapted from a book, it feels more like a 13-hour movie than a 13 episode TV series (and this is a case where this is a good thing).

When 13 Reasons Why ends, it leaves us with some questions and lingering storylines that make me wonder if the series could return for more, even if the source material has already been brought to the main screen. Let’s explore the unanswered questions and discuss if there are plans for a 13 Reasons Why Season 2.

This Sunday Tom McCarthy‘s chances of winning an Academy Award are high. Not only is Spotlight probably going to win Best Picture, McCarthy and co-writer Josh Stinger are destined to win Best Original Screenplay for their tautly written drama. It’s a great year for Tom McCarthy, even when you take into account The Cobbler‘s toxic reception. Following a massively success year, the writer-director will next collaborate with Selena Gomez (Spring Breakers) on Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why.
