There are many different directions that the creators of 13 Reasons Why could go in for season two of the series, but executive producer Brian Yorkey may have just revealed what the plot for the story might be for the characters after Hannah Baker's death.
During Netflix’s FYSee Space, they spoke about their dedication to making a truthful and impactful show and how they plan to replicate that sort of success going forward. So now that the protagonist's life has come to end, where does this leave the rest of the story?
“Hannah told her version of events, but there are at least 12 kids who have another version of those events that we actually haven’t really heard from yet,” Brian said.
“I don’t think Hannah told any untruths on her tape. She reclaimed her narrative, which had really been taken from her.”
He continued: “The tapes are still obviously on people’s minds, but there is a different sort of analog technology that plays a hugely important role in season 2. So the cassette tapes aren’t at the center of it — those two boxes of tapes are still hanging around and matter to people — but there will be a new piece of technology for 13-year-olds to Google and try to understand what it was.” Woah! This is major.
Dylan Minnette's approach this time around will be the same as the first season, telling Variety: “I just want us all to do the same as this year. Just go in assuming that nobody is going to watch it, everyone’s going to hate it and try to make the best thing possible."
As far as what is in store for Dylan's character Clay Jensen is concerned, it looks like his scars and injuries are here to stay during season two.
“We really did like to beat the s— out of Clay whenever we had the opportunity to,” Brian said and Dylan agreed to say that his character was injured in every episode of season one, and it might keep happening.
“And there’s a season two,” Brian said, hinting at what's in the cards for Clay in the upcoming episodes. Ouch. Hang in there, Dylan.
