We Don't Need A Second Season Of "13 Reasons Why"

Here are some reasons why. (Spoilers ahead.)

Posted on

As much as I loved these characters and want some answers, I think it would ultimately be better to let the show remain as a great 13-episode project. And here's why:

1. The source material

Penguin Teen

13 Reasons Why was written as a book with no sequels — why not let it stay that way? It's about Hannah's story, which comes full circle. While there are other loose ends, I think it's more meaningful that we don't necessarily know how everything turned out. Life is messy and sometimes you don't have everything tied up neatly.

2. The content

Netflix

There has certainly been a mixed response to 13 Reasons Why — some are inspired by the show's anti-bullying message, while others claim it's triggering and potentially dangerous. While we obviously don't know what Season 2 would be about, the two likely topics would either be Alex's own attempt to take his life or Tyler's plans to harm others as revenge for being bullied. Both paths seem like they would go to an even darker place than Season 1.

3. The star

Netflix

13 Reasons Why has a phenomenal young ensemble cast, but there's no denying that Katherine Langford's portrayal of Hannah anchored the whole show. While I'm sure Hannah would be present in flashbacks somehow, I personally would miss having Langford as the main character.

If there is a Season 2 (and it sounds like there will be), you can bet I'll give it a chance and see where the writers take things. But I personally think this story was strong enough to exist on its own, without any follow-up.

  1. So, what do you think? Do you want a Season 2 of 13 Reasons Why?

    100%, I need to see more from these characters!
    Yes, but only if the storyline makes sense.
    No, Season 1 is perfect and it should stay that way.
    I didn't even like Season 1, TBH...
