Meet the seven newcomers.

Posted on

The second season of Netflix's 13 Reasons Why will surpass the novel it was originally based on, Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher. That means fans will soon see characters and storylines they've never been introduced to before.

Production has already started on Season 2, and Netflix just revealed a host of new actors joining the show and a brief description of who they'll play.

In the Season 1 finale of 13 Reasons Why, viewers learn that Hannah Baker (Katherine Langford) went to her guidance counselor, Mr. Porter (Derek Luke), for help, and he failed to help her or notify anyone of their meeting. Clay Jenkins (Dylan Minnette) confronts Mr. Porter and leaves him with the thirteen cassette tapes that Hannah recorded before she ended her life. The depositions in the court case against Liberty High School continue, and we also learn that Alex Standall (Miles Heizer) is hospitalized and in critical condition because of a gunshot to the head.

1. Bryce Cast will play a character named Cyrus, who Netflix describes as "an edgy, cynical mischief maker who serves as an unexpected champion of the downtrodden."

Season 2 is slated to launch on Netflix in 2018.
