There's no doubt that Selena Gomez's passion project, 13 Reasons Why, has been a huge success. Literally, everyone is talking about it. But, one of the biggest questions the world has is – what happens next?
Throughout the course of 13 episodes, the series follows a bunch of peers as they try and discover why one of their classmates killed themselves. Using 13 tapes that she left behind, the audience is piecing together why she ended her life and who might be responsible for making her feel like there was no other choice than to commit suicide. The show is not only riveting but eye-opening, as it casts a certain awareness of this topic that has almost become taboo in our society.
So, will there be a second season? Fans are hoping so, but there's been no renewal announcement just yet. Other mini-series that are floating around at the moment, such as Big Little Lies, have also been pushed into this realm of toying with a season 2. The only problem with 13 Reasons Why and its need for a second season is that it is loosely based off of a book written by Jay Asher.
He did not write a second book. So, it would take lots of time to develop a storyline and character developments that should naturally happen and pick up where the first season left off. It's not impossible, just something to really think about.
Of course, it wouldn't be a bad decision considering 13 Reasons Why was just dubbed the most popular Netflix series ever. Yes, EVER. This is a huge accomplishment and we can only imagine the excitement that the cast has about their future with news like this.
Selena has really been a driving force behind this series. She has been behind the project for years with her mom Mandy Teefey and wouldn't let go until she saw it come to life. Even though she may not be in front of the camera, Dylan Minnette reminded the world just how passionate and involved Sel really is with the whole thing.
He said, "She stayed with us the whole day on set and talked to everyone. She took us out to dinner and saw a movie with us, and we hung out with her. I don't think I can emphasize how generous she is and how genuinely she cares."
So, does Selena want a second season? Does Dylan?
13 Reasons Why writer, Brian Yorkey, recently chatted with The Hollywood Reporter and gave some not so subtle hints that season two was definitely in the works. He said, "One of the things that is a fundamental element of our show is the weaving of past and the present. Hannah's story is still very much not finished. She's an integral part of whatever the next chapter of the story is, and she's very much still at the center of it."
Not only that but Katherine said, "There's definitely more story to tell. It would be cool to continue the dialogue of this story. There are so many cliffhangers at the end of the season."
Is this the confirmation that we've all been waiting for? Some fans believe it is!
