“I thought this whole thing was going to be over,” Clay Jensen, played by Dylan Minnette, says in the 13 Reasons Why, season two trailer. “But it’s not,” he continues. The trailer dropped on Tuesday, May 8th where the students of Liberty High are still dealing with the suicide of Hannah Baker’s and the haunting tapes she left her peers, explaining why. The trailer also picks up with multiple accusations of sexual assault against jock Bryce Walker.

Season one ended with a cliffhanger suggesting a school shooting, but the trailer now suggests that the focus of the second season will be on a mysterious set of Polaroids that Clay finds in his locker — similar to how he discovered Hannah’s cassette tapes on his porch.

The official description from Netflix says: “Season 2 picks up in the aftermath of Hannah’s death and the start of our characters’ complicated journeys toward healing and recovery. Liberty High prepares to go on trial, but someone will stop at nothing to keep the truth surrounding Hannah’s death concealed. A series of ominous polaroids lead Clay and his classmates to uncover a sickening secret and a conspiracy to cover it up.”


The upcoming season will answer some of the questions including: “How will Jessica heal in the aftermath of her assault?” “Will Bryce be brought to justice?” “How will Clay move on from the devastating loss of Hannah? What happened to Alex? What choices will Tyler make in the face of his social isolation?”

The series is based on Jay Asher’s young-adult book 13 Reasons Why.
